We always love the stories that go along with our jewelry, especially the ones about the special engagement or wedding rings of our customers. I just received this picture via email from a client in London, England, showing the magnificent ruby his bride is now wearing.

Our very discriminating groom required a 2 carat unheated Burma ruby of pigeon’s blood red and had exhausted his contacts in London. He found us through the internet where he read our 3 part series of articles about Pigeon’s Blood Ruby.

After an arduous 3 month search, during which we had to juggle customs regulations, distant vendors, international travelers, and multiple time zones, we found the perfect stone for this couple. You can read about the funny and exciting search for this beautiful ruby in the two articles we posted, A Seinfeld Holiday, Episode 2 and A Quest for the Perfect Ruby.

In true European style, where the center is a colored gemstone rather than a diamond, this ruby is set in the very popular halo style, reminiscent of the ring Princess Kate is now wearing. Our bride’s ring is distinguished by the micro-pave diamonds along the sides of the ring that lead up to the center circlet of gems.

At Mardon, we think colored gems are the perfect way to express the love and commitment of the engagement. The lasting durability of ruby along with it’s passionate color means this ultra rare and unique gemstone will highlight their marriage, gathering attention and comment in the years to come. Look for our upcoming series of posts about the beautiful colored gemstone engagement rings we’ve created.
