Custom Art Deco Ruby Ring ~ A 40th Wedding Anniversary Gift



According to tradition, the 40th wedding anniversary gift is Ruby. Rubies are thought to possess an eternal inner flame, symbolic of passion in a marriage after 40 years together. 

Ivan contacted me with a request for an Art Deco inspired ring with a 9.0 carat Ruby, a gift he planned to give his wife for their 40th anniversary. He sent me the Ruby, an image of the Chrysler Building and her ring size to get started. 

I began sketching designs & ultimately created two CAD renders depicting the setting in 18K yellow and white gold.


Ivan & Susan celebrated their wedding anniversary in Chicago last weekend.

Congratulations to the couple on 40 years, and best wishes for those to come!
