Whenever I see a ruby, I want to see it in a big yellow gold setting…there’s just something so RICH and lush about that blazing red crested by the gold….

If it were my choice, I would go for cushion cut and either a halo or two larg-ish side diamonds.

I love Jessica Simpson’s ruby ring!

I’d do something like that, or put it in a cathedral style yellow gold solitaire setting.

@starla:  I love her ring, too! I think it’s the perfect setting for a ruby and I love the pear sidestones.

I don’t know about setting, but I totally vote cushion! Soo lovely!

@Missus_LLC:  I like the cushion shape best – it’s more unique and I just love that shape in general.

I like the look of ruby solitaires, or rubies flanked with a diamond (or two) on each side. I prefer the look of white gold or platinum.

Actually, I’d probably put it in a cathedral setting, with a 3mm yellow gold plain or engraved shank, white gold head and a small glittery diamond halo

If you can’t decide between round and cushion you could get a cushion halo with a round stone.

Eeek! So pretty.  I’d personally prefer a cushion cut ruby set into a cushion halo.

OR, a round cut ruby set into cushion halo,

OR, an oval cut ruby set into an oval halo. 

Good luck!

I’d go for the cushion cut, put it in a three stone ring, ruby in the middle, diamond on either side. The best colour for the setting depends on the secondary hue of the ruby.

Of course, this is what I actually went for (hope you don’t mind):

For me, pear shape halo.

But out of your choices above I’d probably go for a cushion halo – I think they look fabulous with coloured centres.
