The MAN64R men's ruby ring from Kaisilver is set with a 9x7mm oval ruby gemstone. Most of you would be aware that rubies are expensive, the larger the size the higher the price (per carat). While we would love to craft this ruby diamond ring with a bigger gemstone, the fact is that the ring would then go beyond most budgets. When choosing a men's ring with ruby, you should ensure that the gemstone is a natural gem and not a factory made imitation. You might come across big ruby gemstones which seem to priced ridiculously low. Request for a gemstone authentication certificate as, these rubies (if natural) are most likely to be glass filled or fissure filled rubies. These gems are a very low value and also compromise on long term durability of the gemstone. You can check out complete details and also learn about pricing and options ... here.
While many men do not prefer to wear jewelry with red or pink gems, a mens ruby ring is considered to be an exception. Rubies have been known to man for centuries, the gem represents love and loyalty. Men might ofcourse choose to wear a gold or silver mens ruby ring because of it being a birth stone. Mens ruby gem stone rings would represent the July birth stone. In this report we will discuss issues related to the gem stone size in a men's ruby ring. This might not seem to be important but, given the price structure of ruby gems - understanding price behaviour of this precious gem is important. Most jewelry buyers are aware that mens gemstone rings would generally use larger gem sizes. What needs to be explained is that, the definition of what is a 'big' gem is influenced not only by the size of the gem stone but, also by the type of gem. We will use some examples of Kaisilver mens ruby rings to explain and demonstrate options, this is more by way of examples rather than a sales pitch.
If you had to order the MAN07 men's gemstone ring with a blue topaz or amethyst gem, the center gemstone could be a stone that is as large (or even larger) than 6 to 8 carats. This is because these gems are moderately priced even in sizes that exceed 5 to 7 carats. Now come back to reality and observe the 18k or 14k mens ruby ring shown in the MAN07 image. The ruby in this mens ring is around 7mm and this for a very good reason. Ruby gemstones get to be expensive as the weight pushes beyond 2.5 to 3 carats. We are ofcourse talking about natural rubies that are conventionally heat treated. This is true of medium to good grade heated ruby gems. Leave out the cheap fissure filled and glass filled treated rubies as they are cheap and not as strong as natural heat treated (or untreated) rubies.
So why did we not suggest an 8mm gem for this mens ruby ring. Kaisilver can procure and custom cut all gems in the shape and size that you need but, there is an issue with large rubies. When you jump size from 7mm to 8mm for a natural round ruby, the price of the gemstone could climb by as much as, 40% to 60%. And keep in mind that all this, for a mere 1mm increase in gem size. Keeping the equation of gem size and price in mind, our experts decided to suggest the 7mm gem size. We would like to add here that, all Kaisilver jewelry can be custom made with the design and gems of your choice. So if you wanted to get the MAN07 mens gold or 925 silver ring with an amethyst or red garnet gem, it would be fine to think of an 8mm or even a 9mm round gemstone.
So would a 6mm gemstone have been a cheaper option. Yes that is very true but the basic design concept of the MAN07 mens ruby ring, would look a bit strange if a 6mm gem was used. We will discuss the option for a 6mm round ruby gemstone for a mens ring, and see how a changed design and structure can make a big difference in appearance.
Smaller Ruby Size Option.
The RG215 mens ruby wedding band, is suitable for casual wear too. If you had to talk about a mens wedding band ring, a band width of around 8mm is ideal. Such rings are not very bulky and look fine in sizes upto 10. This impressive ruby wedding band like all other Kaisilver jewelry, can be ordered in gold or sterling silver. When choosing a gold ruby wedding band for men or ladies, keep in mind that 14k gold is harder than 18k gold. You could say that the 14k yellow or white gold mens ruby gemstone wedding band would be tougher than an 18k gold ring. A wedding band implies that the band width of the ring be uniform throughout the ring, this is how the RG215 is designed and constructed. Now let us discuss the size of the ruby gemstone in this mens diamond and gem wedding band. With a center gemstone of just 6mm, the ring gets an imposing band width of 8mm. Since the band width is fine for mens band rings, the gem does not appear to be too small. The center ruby actually occupies most of the band width and therefore appears to be much larger than 6mm. The diamonds in this ruby wedding band for men are optional, you can leave them out of the design. An interesting option is to have the diamonds replaced with other gems of your choice.
So what if you want a very large ruby, something in the range of a 4 to 6 carat gemstone. Once again, remember that we are restricting discussion to natural rubies that are either not treated at all or, just heat treated. If you had to group rubies as ordinary grade, medium grade and good grade - a 4 to 6 carat ruby gem could have a price range of 2,500 U.S$ to 10,000 U.S$ for the piece. At Kaisilver we work directly with miners from Mozambique and Burma when it comes to ruby gems. We can therefore get such large rubies and even have them certified for authenticity and treatment. If you really want your mens ruby ring to have such a large ruby gemstone, give us an idea of your budget and we will come up with suggestions.
Before we conclude our discussion on the size of the gemstone for mens ruby rings, we would like to mention few other gems that show a price behaviour that is similar to the ruby. Sapphires, tanzanite, emerald and ofcourse diamonds fall in the same group. Still other gems like alexandrite (natural) and demantoid garnets are better used in even smaller sizes of around 0.5 carats to 1 carat.
