FACTS Ruby is the birthstone of July and is also considered a traditional gift for those celebrating 15th or 40th anniversaries. It is one of the second hardest gemstones, besides Sapphire, and has a hardness of 9. The name originates from the Latin word rubens which means ‘red’. In Sanskrit it is known as ratnaraj,‘the king of jewels’, due to being more precious and valuable than Diamonds the larger their size. They can achieve the highest per-carat price of any coloured stone; making them one of the most important gems in the coloured stone market. Throughout history, Royal families prize this jewel due to its symbolism of fire, passion, courage, and energy. Rubies have been discovered all over the world, with the most notable location being Myanmar (formerly known as Burma) which rapidly became the world’s main Ruby mining area in the 1990s.
COLOURS Rubies are known for their stunning shades of red; from rich dark red, to pigeon blood red or even pinkish red, you are bound to find the perfect one. Their red hue comes from traces of the mineral chromium. The most precious type are those with a full, rich red colour that throws just a hint of blue tones. Almost all Rubies have imperfections and those without are exceptionally rare and demand prices that can reach higher than Diamonds of a similar weight and quality.
CARE Rubies may be one of the second hardest gemstones, however that does not mean they are unable to chip or scratch if not looked after properly. To ensure longevity of your jewels, avoid wearing them while doing heavy work, at gym or gardening (we strongly advise to remove them).
