Ruby Jewelry

Did you know that rubies are actually red sapphires? Ruby and sapphire come from the same corundum family and are identical in all properties except for color. Since rubies have always had such a special allure, they’ve long been classified as their own gemstone, separate of sapphire. While sapphires come in a variety of different colors, rubies only occur in red and are most easily recognized by their signature crimson hue. From radiant red to reddish-brown, to a deep blood red—there’s a shade of ruby jewelry for every outfit and occasion.

Ruby is the most famous red gemstone, and is actually considered one of the cardinal gemstones alongside sapphire and emerald. Not only is ruby attractive for its magnificent color, it’s also very desirable because of its durability. Ruby measures 9 on the Mohs Scale of Hardness, second only to diamond and equal to sapphire. Because of this, ruby is used extensively in all forms of jewelry. Ruby jewelry makes an outstanding centerpiece to any ensemble. It’s warm, romantic color also pairs splendidly with diamonds.
