Why buy Ruby? Excellent question!

Ruby is one of the highest valued colored gemstones and can be more valuable than a diamond of the same size. With the popularity of colored gems on the rise, your brand new Ruby will not only look beautiful it will also be valuable! This stone has withheld the test of time and maintained its popularity for centuries.

How is GemSelect's Ruby sold?

Ruby has been prevalent for centuries. Why is Ruby unique?

First, let's talk about color a brilliant, intense Red. The hue, tone, and intensity are all key to classifying an exceptional Ruby in addition to its cut and size, but color happens to be the most crucial aspect. Why, might you ask? Well, a Ruby earns its marks based on its red color if for any reason it wasn't up to the standards set for classifying Rubies it would be nothing more than a Sapphire which is still an excellent stone, but its no Ruby.

The strict classification speaks volumes to the uniqueness and importance of the stone plus its reputation. A gem with color that's so important that any deviation will reclassify it all together sounds like something people have protected for quite some time. We here at GemSelect believe there is something to be said for a jewel that's standards are this high. If you would like to read about an interesting and extremely rare Ruby check out the  Carmen Lucia Ruby.

Rubies Mohs Hardness and Ways to Use Ruby in Jewelry.

Now let us talk about durability and uses for this cherished jewel. Ruby holds an excellent mark on the Mohs scale of hardness as it's a 9, therefore, considered extremely durable. This Gemstone is suitable for any jewelry application, and one can wear it daily. Okay, all sounds great so how do we use it?

GemSelect suggests using Rubies in ring designs, necklaces designs, and earrings. It can mount into any setting from gold which compliments the red to white gold and platinum. It can arrange with other stones that compliment its beauty, such as, Emerald or Diamond. This fantastic gemstone can even mount in silver and be considered fine jewelry. The last application we will mention is a Pave application that provides beautiful results in bands, earrings, pins, brooches, gemstone pendants, and more!

What are good reasons for people to wear Ruby?

Great question! Ruby is the Birthstone for those born in July, and it's also popular as an alternative engagement ring. Lastly, Ruby is traditionally given for milestone anniversaries so if you're celebrating your 15th, 40th, or 80th anniversary be sure to have a stunning Ruby adornment for your partner. With all the occasions and uses we have to wear this stone are there any other beliefs or traditions? Yes, there are, but we will let you look into them further if you should choose to Click Here.

Where is Ruby mined?

The traditional sources for outstanding Ruby are Myanmar and Thailand. Now we are seeing many affordable Rubies coming from Africa predominately Madagascar. While it's lovely to have an increase in availability with 'this precious stone' the cut, color, clarity, and carat weight 'classifications' leave only a few remarkable samples that GemSelect strives to procure.
