There are 3 deep red oval rubies with a total weight of .85cts. Milgrained bezels surrounding the main stones add a vintage inspiration.

Red is the color of our most intense emotions. For example, love and anger, passion, fury, and associated with objects of power and desire – like fast cars and red roses. Early cultures treasured rubies for their similarity to the redness of the blood that flowed through their veins and believed that rubies held the power of life.
One of the most historically significant colored stones, Ruby, is referred to as the most precious of the 12 stones created by God. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means “red.” The glowing red of ruby suggested an inextinguishable flame burning in the stone.
Ruby became one of the most sought-after gems of European royalty and the upper classes. Hence, many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love.
