This ring is a size that is truly believable. The center stone in a synthetic ruby, a stone more sought after than cubic zirconia for its color and quality, and it is 10mm by 5mm or about one carat in size. Each side is hand set with three clear round cubic zirconia stones. Center stone is securely held with six prongs and all stones are hand set. We have added rhodium plating around the stones to highlight them but the rest of the band is gold plated. In shiny and polished rhodium and gold plated brass this ring is made just like fine jewelry.
