The ruby has a long history as adornment for jewelry. The ancient Greeks, Egyptians and Romans first started using these rare precious stones for their jewelry. The ruby is also called the stone of life, but in our current time the ruby is mostly known as the stone of love. That’s hardly surprising with its deep color, varying from rose-red to the warm deep blood-red.
Fact is, that a ruby ring is something extraordinary. Not only because of its warm red color, but also because of its rarity. Diamonds, although rare, are usually easier to find than rubies.
One of the things we at DiamondsByMe pride ourselves for, is the fact that all the gemstones we use, come from conflict-free mines. Our stone buyers only do business with acknowledged gemstone suppliers. So, you can rest assured, knowing that your ruby ring was created with genuine rubies, and the fact that no people were harmed mining the stones.
Next to the titles of ‘stone of life’ and ‘stone of love’ the ruby also is the symbol for those born in July. If you yourself are a July-born or wish to purchase a ring for a lady born in July, then the ruby is perfect.
If you wish to know more about birthstones, then we invite you to peek in our education center. Or if you want to check our collection of birthstone rings, then go right ahead, and create your very own!
A ruby comes in various sorts of color tones. The most sported color is the rose-red toned ruby, whereas the blood-red ruby is even more rare. Check out our eternity ring collection for beautiful stacking rings for your hand.
The popular choice for a center stone would be a round or brilliant shape. However, if you are looking for something different, then perhaps you should take a look at our rings with heart ruby or rings with pear ruby.The heart ruby ring is of course perfect when adding a touch of symbolism to your jewelry. And the heart shaped ruby does its name of being the stone of life and love justice. We have some beautiful designs available, from the modern, simple and elegant Lieke Heart ring, to a traditional Claddagh heart ring. If you wish to say it with jewelry, then the Claddagh love ring is an excellent choice.
We also sport several designs featuring a pear-shaped ruby. When worn with the top of the pear shape toward the fingertip, it will optically elongate your fingers, making them even more elegant.
