5.0 out of 5.0
I was looking for a simple pair of oval ruby dangles to go with a necklace I have which has nice red rubies with good light. I honestly didn't expect the rubies to have much transluscence for the price I got them for, but I thought I would take a shot anyway because I am always pleased with the quality from Ross-Simons. Despite this, I fully expected to have to send them back....NOT! They are absolutely beautiful! The rubies are is a nice red color and they have nice light. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase. They are just what I was looking for.
