''Hand made 2.5-carat eq. (7*9 mm) Pigeon's blood oval cut lab ruby vintage halo style engagement ring, white gold or rose gold plated sterling silver discreetly adjustable band''
Unique on Etsy!
This is a very elegant and vintage looking ring with a proper pigeon's blood coloured lab ruby, great clarity!
Ruby is the most expensive coloured stone every sold in auctions. What matters the most is the colour and transparency as most natural rubies are heavily included, that it is so rare (much much rarer than white diamonds) to find a high quality natural ruby with the right colour and clarity, in a large size.
Our stones have the most desired ''Pigeon's blood'' colour which is a deep yet vibrant red, which reflect so much light and fire when being turned. Plus they have the same chemical composition (mineral corundum), optical appearance and physical characteristics (Mohs scale 9) as top quality natural rubies.
We're confident that this ring will make that perfect elegant engagement ring or special gift.
Each handmade piece is crafted with the perfect conflict-free alternative to a mined diamond/coloured stones. We choose the highest quality of diamond simulant/lab coloured stones simulants in the market, which means they have similar composition and hardness to real gemstones. Also, they are hand cut, faceted and polished in the same way as real gemstones, making sure you get the maximum fire, brilliance and sparkle!

Silver items should avoid getting into contact with chemicals like bleach, acids and sulphur (which can be found in some body care products, bathing Epsom salt, and natural hot-springs) to avoid possibility for tarnishing.
Most of our handmade pieces are crafted with the perfect conflict-free alternative to a mined diamond or coloured stone.
We choose the highest quality of lab created coloured stone and diamond simulants in the market. They may not test real chemically or structurally, but they will last a life time if cared for properly.
For coloured stones, it means that they are lab-grown gems and contain similar elements, have similar colour, hardness and optical appearance as natural stones.
For diamond simulants, it means that they are high in hardness, reflective index and dispersion just like diamonds. Also, they are hand cut, faceted and polished in the same way as real diamonds, making sure you get the maximum fire, brilliance and sparkle.

Please check out the video below and you'll see at the bottom of the band there's an overlapping section that allows adjustments. When you are wearing it there's no difference and hardly noticeable. It also does not affect the quality of the band.
I made the band adjustable is because working in the jewellery industry for so long I know how difficult it is to get a ring size right even in person, let alone online or as a gift. Different ring shapes, weather conditions, body conditions, etc. all affect the actual size a ring feels on a customer's finger.
Making the ring adjustable is so much easier for a customer if the fit is not 100% as she can make the ring smaller or bigger herself.
Of course! If you prefer a solid band, I can always still make it for you to order, usually it takes about 4 weeks and a small custom fee (£35). Please message me and I'll send you the listing for the extra payment.
Please note that unless faulty, solid rings made to order is not available for return or exchange.
If the ring was made to the size given correctly, but the size given turned out to be wrong, I do not provide re-sizing service as it's always best to visit a local jeweller and measure the finger properly, then resize the ring, than trying to do it remotely again.
All jewellery made with plated gold will inevitably start to wear off after wearing for a long time, you can have it re-plated at a jeweller. Some tricks can help to prolong the colour for longer:
Always remove the ring when doing housework, showering, swimming, working out and sleeping. Avoid getting it into contact with rough surfaces, hand sanitiser, hand cream, house cleaning agents, perfume and other chemicals.
For people with an active lifestyle and wish to wear the ring all the time, it is best to go for Solid Gold option if a rose/yellow gold ring is wished, or go for the white gold plated option as even though the plating will also wear off, there is little obvious colour change.
Please contact me for solid gold quotes.
The most accurate way to find out the ring size required is always to visit a jeweller and have them measure your finger properly using professional jeweller's Finger-sizing gauges, or you can usually buy them on Amazon.
It is NOT recommended to use any other online sizing tool or a piece of string as the sizer has to be a rigid circle, with a similar width to the ring you are buying in order for the sizing to be accurate.
If this is not possible, or if you are buying as a gift, please do not worry as most of my rings come with adjustable ring bands, which means that the size can be altered after sale at home easily. (See previous FAQs)
