Jewel of the day: Picchiotti Expandable Ruby and Diamond Ring
Age is often unkind to our fingers (among other body parts), with knuckles swelling and fingers getting thinner. People often use ring guards to protect against a too loose ring falling off, but Italian jeweller Picchiotti has come up with a nifty, if expensive solution – rings that expand as needed.
This one, set with diamonds and rubies, has the following specs: prong-set, round F-G/VS diamonds trim outer edges.rong-set, faceted oval rubies at center; 6.6 total round-cut diamond carat weight; 9.96 total ruby carat weight; approx. 0.5″H (12.7mm).
This is priced at USD$48,000 and is available at Neiman Marcus.
