I've been looking for an affordably priced ring (for me) with a medium/large rough-cut ruby in a gold-plated setting. This was the only one I could find and I took the chance and ordered the "Bug" ring. I'm very happy with my decision,
Â it does not look like a creepy insect on my finger. The ring looks beautiful with my ruby/gold drop earrings purchased from Ross-Simons last year.
