Ruby ring surprise
Kiai had been holding on to a number of pieces of jewelry that her mother had given her that she didn’t think were aligned with her modern aesthetic. Because Kiai wanted to carry her mother with her and utilize the high-quality materials from her mother’s old pieces, she thought it would be a great idea to put the stones in a redesigned piece of jewelry that would be perfect for her contemporary style.
Material: Oval ruby in bezel setting, square rubies, and round diamonds in channel setting in 14k yellow gold
*All rubies and diamonds are Kiai's, and we deducted her old gold from the final cost.
