about the stones: Wyoming mined faceted ruby (3mm); This ruby is mined from the eastern foothills of the Rocky Mountains, near Cheyenne, Wyoming. The stone has a saturated pinkish-red color and is mostly opaque, making it an ideal choice for vintage styles and other custom jewelry designs. Ruby is the birthstone for July. Ruby, a variety of corundum classified as a precious stone, is one of the world's most valuable gemstones. With its hardness and durability, ruby is an excellent choice for all types of jewelry. The color of a ruby is due to a trace of chromic oxide in the stone; the amount of this substance determines the depth of color. Through the ages, ruby has been considered to be a gem of nobility, credited with engendering sensuality and vitality.
Lab created faceted moissanite (diamond alternative; 2mm accent stones)—The gemological properties of Moissanite created by Charles & Colvard® lend powerful optical characteristics to this ring. Its high refractive index and light dispersion produce an ideal fusion of brilliance and fire that dazzles and captures the eye unlike any other jewel. The manufacturing process pioneered by Charles & Colvard produces one of the hardest minerals on earth with a Mohs hardness second only to diamond and higher than emerald, sapphire or ruby. I've chosen to use moissanite because it is a beautiful diamond alternative that is also conflict-free, and is more brilliant than a natural diamond. It is perfect for a daily-wear engagement, wedding, anniversary, or keepsake piece.
