I was so happy to find this beautiful Rubellite, it sparkles in purplish pink tones and is absolutely stunning. The slightly included gem itself measures 8 mm and I set it in a Sterling Silver bezel. To emphasize its rare beauty I used gold plating around the gem. The ring size is US 8.5.
This statement piece is handmade and comes in a beautiful gift box.
Mohs scale hardness: 7-7.5
