Red is often associated with love (for example, the red rose), so it's only natural that the ruby should signify passion and love. It's given on both the 15th and the 40th wedding anniversaries, so it's a gemstone that represents keeping the passion and love alive in a relationship. It's also worn as a protective talisman in many cultures and has a strong mystical connection for many people. With so many different hues, ruby jewellery has a special place in any jewellery collection. Surround it with diamonds, and you have a dazzling and eye-catching love token for someone special.

The finest rubies come from the far east and, in particular, Myanmar (formerly known as Burma), Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam, and Cambodia. Rubies are also mined in parts of Africa, including Madagascar, Zambia, and Mozambique. You may also find some that originate from Afghanistan and Pakistan. The more intense and vivid the colour, the more valuable the stone. Unlike sapphires, which can be in a range of colours (including pink and almost black), rubies are always red.
It's all about the colour with rubies. The deeper the colour, the better the quality. It should have that blood-red tone with a brightness that stops it from looking dull or muted. The colour should graduate through red with flashes of violet or deep purple; the more orangey the tones, the lower the stone's quality. The cut should enhance the gem's inner beauty and fire, and there should be few inclusions or flaws. The way a ruby is faceted will allow that inner fire to 'flash', making a top-quality ruby gemstone a real showstopper.
Rubies are very robust, hard stones, so they're strong enough to put up with everyday wear. However, they're not as hard as diamonds, so you will need to protect them from scratches and knocks that could chip the corners of square-cut rubies. Our advice is to store your ruby jewellery in a soft cloth pouch or custom-made jewellery box when it's not being worn. If you play sports, take your jewellery off to avoid it getting snagged or broken. And when you're swimming or bathing, remove your jewellery (especially ruby rings), so they don't slip off and disappear down the plughole!
