Lucretia is a classic, natural, round ruby and diamond halo engagement ring in 14kt yellow gold. The ruby is so pretty, on the pinker side, looking deep pink in the sun and deeper pink/red in incandescent light. It has some natural inclusions, which can be seen in the first photo, identifying it as a natural stone. There is one chip on the underside of the ruby, which clearly occurred during the cutting of the stone - most likely an inclusion in the rough - and which cannot be seen at all when wearing (since it is hidden from view). The diamonds are lovely, bright and sparkling, setting the ruby off to perfection. Lucretia is in excellent vintage condition, showing hardly any signs of wear.
I do offer sizing for an additional fee, please convo me for details!
Will arrive in a beautiful ring box with a fabulous rose colored bow free shipping and insurance!

Length of layaway depends on the cost of the item, but is usually limited to three months. Item will ship once payments are complete. Layaway items are non-returnable.

I have received several requests to "hold" an item and so I will now offer to hold an item for up to 24 hours only. You just need to send me a convo and let me know when you plan to purchase.
I ship within the US via First Class with insurance, unless otherwise noted in the listing or if you choose an upgraded shipping option. Shipping insurance covers the package until it reaches your mailbox. On orders over $750, a signature will be required. I generally ship as soon as I possibly can, often on the same day. If you are having a ring sized, this generally takes about a week.
For customers outside the US, PLEASE READ:
International customers are responsible for all fees associated with shipping to their respective countries. Orders that are shipped to countries outside of the United States may be subject to import taxes, customs duties and fees levied by the destination country. The recipient of an international shipment may be subject to such import taxes, customs duties and fees, which are levied once a shipment reaches your country. Additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by the recipient; I have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be. Customs policies vary widely from country to country; you should contact your local customs office for further information. WARNING: Items going to the European Union are subject to very high import taxes (VAT), please consider this before ordering. When customs clearance procedures are required, it can cause delays beyond the original delivery estimates. It is against the law and I will not mark an item as a "gift" to avoid any fees.
If you are unhappy for any reason, please contact me within 14 days of receipt of your item and we will find a way to make you a happy customer! Buyer is responsible for return shipping costs, but the full price and original standard (not upgraded) shipping will be refunded to domestic buyers, international shipping is not refundable. If the item is not returned in its original condition, the buyer is responsible for any loss in value. If you have had a ring sized, the sizing fee is not refundable.
Your personal information will only be used to contact you about your order and to fulfill the order.
Most rings can be sized up or down 3 or so sizes, in some cases that is not so and I have added that information to the description. It takes my talented bench jeweler about a week to complete the work.
Yes, I offer a 14 day, return for any reason policy. That is from the date of delivery.
