This gorgeous Ruby ring is a combination or several Nepalese techniques. The 'Jali' or open cut design on the sides, a 'Rawa' and wire collet frame and folded edges top and bottom merge all the traditional styles into one divine, statement ring. A classic Boho beauty to treasure forever!
And did you know, Rubies are part of the corundum group of minerals with their sister stone, Sapphires. Along with Emeralds and Diamonds they form what is termed the 'Four Precious Stones' Also, the traditional Birthstone for July!
Almost all rubies today are treated in some form, heating and dying being the main types of treatment. Untreated rubies of excellent quality are incredibly expensive. Due to these treatments Rubies require a little bit of extra care, always protect them from excessive light, heat and chemicals. If they do start to look a little dull, try rubbing oil ( baby oil is great) onto the surface of the stone, this will reinvigorate the colour again.
