Ruby has been so prevalent throughout the centuries you may ask, what makes Ruby so 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.
