This is a good size for a center-stone in a ring design.
I was just browsing on my trusted gem site, Gem Select, when I saw gems that were my grand children's birth stones. The price was right, so I ordered them. I like to surprise my grand children with something special for their birthday, and they will be nice birthday gifts.
I had a limited budget and wanted a star ruby. GemSelect offered small, but pretty stones at a very reasonable price. I've always been satisfied with my GemSelect purchases, although there are also eBay vendors I use for less expensive gems. Their selection of more expensive stones, like rubies, is very limited, however.
