      Rubies are stunning, rare and make an elegant statement in any piece of jewellery. 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. This type of gemstone is described as idiochromatic. 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”. In addition to the ruby’s bright colour, its desirability derives from its hardness, durability, lustre, and rarity. The corundum variety (rubies and sapphires) rate 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness – second only to diamonds.
