Traditionally, engagement rings with white or colourless diamonds are chosen most often. Men forget these days to add a marvelous coloured gemstone in the ring. However, these gemstones are very nice and they give the diamond jewel a playful touch. When thinking about gemstones, the sapphire is still number one. Think of Lady Di’s legendary engagement ring, which Kate Middleton now shows off with a smile. Besides the sapphire, ruby is a very nice alternative to combine with diamonds. Furthermore, as red is the colour of love, this gem must be set much more in engagement rings.

Ruby as a symbol of love

The colour red symbolizes love. No wonder that rubies are often given as a gift, for example, to celebrate the birthday of your loved one or as a lovely Christmas present. How nice is it to express your love with a unique ruby? This gemstone is a variety of the mineral corundum in which the colour is mainly formed by chromium. It is also called the king of gems and has been set in jewellery for ages. Today, even very large amounts are payed for rubies, for example for iconic stones at famous auction houses like Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Of course there are also affordable options.

Diamond engagement rings with a ruby

A diamond ring with a ruby is perfect as an engagement ring. Thanks to white or colourless diamonds the ruby will even shine more bright. In white gold or platinum you will get a breathtaking brilliance. In combination with yellow gold the jewel will have a more classic look. Think of the engagement ring of Queen Mathilde, in which a large rare ruby attracts the attention. We don’t recommend the combination of rubies and red gold.

We at BAUNAT have an extensive collection of engagement rings, also set with beautiful rubies. If you have any additional questions or you are interested in a specific model, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
