When you are shopping for ruby jewelry, the most important value factor to consider is the quality of the ruby. The more vivid and bright the red, the more valuable the ruby. Cut and clarity also factor into value and the larger the carat weight, the more the ruby will cost per carat.
Because all Gemvara jewelry is made to order, we can hand-select fine-quality ruby to perfectly suit your design.
What is the meaning of ruby in the language of gems? Worn by passionate women with a flair for the dramatic, ruby is the gem of courage and emotion. Its fiery brilliance attracts the eye and quickens the pulse. In legend, ruby is the gem of the heart with the power to kindle the flame of desire. Burning with an unquenchable fire, ruby engagement rings are the perfect way to pledge your undying love.
Ruby is the July birthstone, the 15th and 40th anniversary gem, and the zodiac gem for the sign of Cancer.
Ruby with fine color is so desirable that producers take an extra step after mining and before cutting to make sure that a ruby has the best hue possible. Before their final polish, most rubies are heated to almost 2,000 degrees in order to improve the color and clarity. Heat enhancement is stable, does not require special care, and does not reduce the gem's value.
Because the fire-engine hue of your ruby jewelry will catch the eye, you will want to match the color of ruby earrings or a ruby necklace closely to the color of a ruby ring. Ruby jewelry is most often crafted in white or yellow gold or platinum but silver is also an option if budget is a concern.
Ruby is a very durable gem that wears well over generations. Clean ruby jewelry with mild dish soap: use a soft brush behind the stone where dust can collect.
