Gold sheen sapphire and dark, vivid ruby is ideal for men’s jewelry.
Typical design styles for men’s jewelry use flat mountings with large(er) size gemstones. This requires a faceted gem with a larger table size, or flatter cabochon that presents well, which favors opaque over transparent stones.
For example, this gold sheen sapphire ring has a 45ct stone with a 22mm x 16mm table. The faceting picks up brass, copper and gold tones as light plays across the surface.
The rubies in these rings are cabbed from the same piece of rough ruby. In larger sizes, the dark tone with strong saturation is great for men’s rings, yet still beautifully feminine in smaller sizes.
