      Rubies are stunning, rare and make a romantic and meaningful statement for an engagement ring. The rich red colour of the ruby has become a classic and timeless look that exudes elegance, passion, and romance. Derived from the Latin word ‘rubens’ meaning red, rubies are amongst the only gemstones which occur in a single colour. Ruby is the red variety of the mineral Corundum – any other colour of gem from Corundum is classified as a sapphire. While corundum crystals in their purest form are transparent, when enough of the natural chemical element chromium is present a ruby is formed. The possible colours of a ruby include deep red, pinkish red, purplish red, orangey red, and brownish red. The rarest colour range is a pure vibrant red known classically as “ruby red” - moving down to a more purplish red. A ruby is a stunning and enduring choice for an engagement ring.

      Measuring a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness, second only to diamonds, a ruby is an excellent choice for an engagement ring as it can withstand daily wear to last a lifetime.
