Looking For A Christmas Bauble?

Are you looking for that perfect accessory for your holiday outfit this year? I might have just the thing for you! Try this on for size:
It's a 4 carat Burmese Ruby ring, set in platinum, surrounded by another 3 carats of diamonds. That ruby is as big as a dime! Just thing to show off to your friends at the ward party, right?
 A friend of mine found this in her mother's jewelry and took it to the mall to have it re-sized. The jeweler wouldn't touch it and told her go immediately to the bank and put it in a safety deposit box. Apparently. it's worth several (and a few more several) thousands of dollars. Her parents picked it up for a few hundred dollars during their world travels in the 60's. I was able to take pictures of it for insurance purposes, but I know my friend would like to sell it. So, if you are in the market for a shiny little Christmas bauble, I can point you in the right direction.
