The fit is great and I always wanted a birthstone ring (ruby). treated myself to this as a five year breast cancer free gift. Thank you Judith Ripka - my first Ripka purchase.

Have been wanting an opaque ruby for years and this was affordable and beautiful. I know a little about stones so did not expect it to look any different than it does; it is a flat slab of an opaque ruby so do not expect a clear red stone. It has a chatoinancy ( don't know how to spell that ) and by that It mean that it reflects light in an interesting way due to the way it was cut. The setting is very sturdy and comfortable to wear. It is a size 6 but I found it a bit tight so sometimes wear it on my left hand. If you are right handed, usually the fingers on your dominant hand can be a bit bigger. It still fits my right hand with a little lotion applied so I am happy with it.

I was a bit skeptical about purchasing this ring...rubies have a tendency to be heavily included with the visible lines in them, and purplish rather than the deep red that is more desirable. But I loved the setting of this ring so decided to give it a try & so happy I did...the stone has a few visible scratches and is completely opaque, but is a beautiful deep red & surrounded by the silver it is a stunning piece! Looks good on the hand. It has become one of my favorite rings from Judith.

The setting is beautiful but the stone has what look like scratches on the flat part . The color is not red, but a dark maroon . The stone is also opaque, completely. For this money, one would expect a better quality stone with better color, even if opaque.
