Ruby Jewelry – The Gem on Fire
A Gem of Courage and Power
The ruby, once thought to be made of fire, used to be a symbol of courage and power. It was worn for good fortune, although only the richest could afford such precious gems. If you think you should not wear a ruby because it isn’t your birthday gemstone, think again. Ruby jewelry is a bold, vibrant stone that can give any outfit a glamorous touch. It’s a type of aluminum oxide whose color is caused by Chromium. Just like a diamond, the cut, carat, clarity, and color are elements that determine the pureness and value of the Ruby.
The Precious Gem of History
The ruby has been a gemstone worn throughout history by the clergy or royalty. In the bible, the book of Job describes higher priests wearing rubies attached to their apparel. The trade of such gemstone was also practiced on the North Silk Road of China, India, or even Europe and worn by the richest as a symbol of higher status. The Indian often referred to the ruby as the ‘king of gems’ and used it as a representation of the sun. The King Charles IV of Luxembourg also had ruby incrusted in his crown. Rubies were often considered more valuable than diamonds because of their scarcity.
How to Wear a Ruby
The ruby stone can be worn in a variety of jewelry sets, from rings to pendants or earrings. The most common metals used in ruby jewelry are yellow gold, rose gold, sterling silver, or white gold. Although the latter is more classic and easier to wear than other metals, rose and yellow gold has been worn more and more lately. They are antique metals than can bring out the color of your ruby while giving it a ‘vintage’ touch. A ring with a heart-shaped ruby stone is an all-time classic present, perfect as a Valentine’s Day present or an engagement ring. Jewelry that combines diamonds and rubies has grown increasingly popular in jewelry stores, as they offer more color and originality than ‘regular’ diamond rings or pendants. The ruby is also the stone of 15th and 40th anniversary presents.
Find a Quality Ruby Stone
What determines the value of a ruby stone is the quality of its color. Its natural shade should be a warm, deep, bright red. Most jewelers treat the ruby stone to enhance its color and appearance. Many of them even create ‘lab-made’ ruby gems that are usually sold at a lower price than natural rubies. When buying ruby stone, you can go with either a solitaire or a cluster (several smaller rubies put together, sometimes combined with other stones.) Choosing a cluster of rubies for a jewel can be a cost-effective option if you are buying a pendant or bracelet. For a ring, a solitaire format is preferred, but you should pay special attention to the cut of the gem. Any shape from classic cushion and round to oval or pear cut can be used with a ruby stone.
