What a fantastic ring! This is a barrel cut synthetic ruby that is original to this Retro era gold ring. A classic 1940's design, the mounting sits flush to the hand and protects the stone in a frame, making this a great, secure ring for every day.
Starting in the Victorian era, transportation was far more expensive than it is now. Rubies had to be brought from Burma, Emeralds from South America. This cost translated into the price of the stones, making them far too expensive for the average consumer. In response, jewelers found interesting ways to make natural stones go a little farther. Synthetics were created: stones faceted from crystals grown in laboratories. These remained popular right through today!
