Uncut Ruby Ring.

My hunt for an unusual silver ring is finally over because I found something completely perfect. I was originally lusting over an uncut diamond ring after seeing Kaelah's engagement ring but after some consideration I thought that diamonds are so perfect for an engagement & since I'm not engaged I wanted something similar but not the same. There's plenty of time for diamonds in the future after all!
After browsing the ring pages of Folksy for what seemed like forever I stumbled across this beauty & although I know this isn't going to be to everyone's taste, I absolutely adore it! I like anything that's slightly out of the ordinary and there's something very natural and beautiful about uncut and unpolished stones.

In natural light the ruby stone looks more vibrant and I really love its deep colour and tone which really contrasts against the clean silver base. I purchased it from this Folksy seller who was more than helpful in adjusting it to my ring size and it took just a couple of days to arrive on my doorstep! 
Is this a style of ring you would choose? Or do you prefer stones that shine and sparkle all of the time?

P.S. Please excuse the multi coloured nails, as much as I love having skittles coloured nails I'm testing how these colours wear and how long they last! Also the pretty blue floral background in the last instagram photograph is my beautiful new dress that has brought a little bit of much needed summer into my life & I'll be writing a little review and featuring in an outfit of the day post super soon!

P.P.S. Please don't forget to enter my little Sawyer & Scout giveaway! ♥

  5. Wow, that ring is beautiful! I'm not a huge fan of cut stones, in fact I don't think I own a single ring with one! I'd never even considered something like this, but it's so lovely and eye-catching that I'll definitely be having a look now x

  17. This is very pretty! Our anniversary rings are made with a similar looking gemstone - garnets. We tied the knot in January of 2005 so it was fitting to have the gemstone set in our rings! We got them here: http://www.anjolee.com/wedding-rings-and-anniversary-rings

  18. What a cool idea!! I would love to find something like that with gold and turquoise stone!

  19. This is absolutely beautiful...there's something extra cutting about rough gemstones; a certain realness. I myself love to buy rings from Etsy or Folksy. Etsy has this great feature where you can post a description of what you want in a piece of jewelry and the artist will create it for you.

    simply fascinating stuff.
