Vintage French cut lab-created ruby eternity ring dating to the mid 20th century. Thirty-six synthetic rubies are channel set in platinum. Each little square shaped ruby is cut with the table (top of the gemstone) at a 90 degree angle to the girdle (widest part of the stone, what you see as the shape).
