F is not alone in his opinion. Rubies have been the chosen gem of many royal families throughout history as a symbol of power and prosperity. In ancient times the ruby was regarded as the most powerful gem above all others. It was said to hold an inextinguishable fire that could boil water. The metaphysical properties attributed to a ruby include the ability to give courage, stimulate creativity, and increase romantic love and devotion.
Rubies Suit Several Settings & Metal Colours
A ruby engagement ring is a highly versatile choice and can be set in a variety of styles. The rich red glow of the gem is particularly well enhanced by yellow gold recreating that opulent regal look exquisitely. However, if a silver or white gold setting is preferred, the cooling tones of the metal contrast beautifully, spotlighting the deep crimson hues of the stone quite magnificently.
Perfect for Art Deco
When selecting a ruby engagement ring it would be well worth considering one in a vintage or Art Deco design. The Art Deco era embraced the world of coloured gemstones and created many jewelled masterpieces that simply exploded with colour and exquisite detail. The ruby was one of the most favoured gems of this style due to its vibrantly vivid colour which starred glamorously alongside intricate metalwork detailing and handcrafted engravings.
Fit for a Queen
Rubies are in fact a not so distant cousin of the sapphire and share the benefits of being one of the hardest gemstones and well suited for everyday wear. However, whatever your reasons for selecting a ruby ring the finished result will be magnificent. To put it quite simply, a ruby engagement ring will be nothing less than a ring fit for a queen!
