Ruby additionally grew in popularity with the birth of the Western world and became one of the most desirable stones to the European aristocracy.

The stone for this design comes from Mozambique. Its deep colour is brought to the fore due to the excellent proportions of the cut. The composition is completed with a decorative rosette, with diamonds embedded in its individual petals. This seemingly classic solution has been enhanced by a decorative halo edge. In addition, the way the diamonds are set gives the rosette a modern look. The ring was handcrafted in rose 14k gold.
