The colour red is associated with romance and blood, but not at the same time, just like this trilliant shaped stone from our ethically sourced mines in Mozambique. The stone has a stunning deep red colour replicating romance and blood, but not at the same time. With a carat weight of 1.60 carats, no wonder this stone catches the eye. It has the dimensions of 7.08mm by 7.13mm and a modest pavilion depth of 4.24mm. The credit for the marvellous modified flower cut on the pavilion of the stone goes to our lapidarists in Sri Lanka, who work tirelessly day in day out to do it justice.
