LOS ANGELES - April 23, 2019 - PRLog -- Cut by Lampert's Lapidary facility in Bangkok, with mapping, design, and initial cleavage by Steven Zale, a treasure was created by this astounding beautiful natural 585 carat Red Suede Ruby.  Zale states, "This was a risky feat, as the incorrect initial cleavage could have shattered the rough to tiny pieces and rendered it valueless".  Zale further explains the cutting loss was over 68% just to get the planned design shape.  The art or sometimes luck to get this size of yield is very rare and would require a meticulous provenance support. The initial rough had duel certifications from GIA & Emil Labs. Once the final cutting and polish was complete, the ruby measured 50 x 50 x 52 x 28 mm, and was certified again by a third lab, IGI rendering it matching to the original rough certifications.

We asked Zale, Why did you name it, The Tear of Buddha? Zale explained, "Folklore submits that In Ancient Tibet and China, Buddhist beliefs claim Rubies are the, Tears of Buddha as the Ruby began its travel journey along the Silk Road…  The name just seemed fitting to me."  Now that I have finished the designs, wax carvings, I will craft it in 18K gold and adorned the necklace with a beautiful diamond design.  This necklace will be such a magnificent work of art & craftsmanship, that it will be a signed and numbered part of the Renoir High Jewelry Collectable, by Emmanuel Renoir Legacy Brand and surly command a high six figure tag.
