Engagement rings with white or colourless diamonds remain the most popular choice, and many forget to add a marvellous coloured gemstone to complement the diamond. 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, a ruby is a very nice alternative to combine with diamonds. Furthermore, as red is the colour of love, this gem is perfect in engagement rings.

Ruby as a Symbol of Love

The colour red symbolises love, so it’s no wonder that rubies are often given as gifts, such as celebrating your loved one’s birthday 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 chromium forms the red colour. The Ruby is also called the ‘king of gems’ and has been used in jewellery for ages. Today, people pay enormous amounts for rubies, such as iconic stones at famous auction houses like Christie’s and Sotheby’s. Of course, there are also affordable options.

Diamond Engagement Ring with a Ruby

A diamond ring with a ruby is perfect as an engagement ring. Thanks to white or colourless diamonds, the ruby will shine even brighter. In a white gold or platinum setting, 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 combining rubies and red gold as the alloy’s blush colour washes out the ruby’s radiant red colour.
We at BAUNAT have an extensive collection of engagement rings, also set with beautiful rubies. If you have any additional questions or are interested in a specific model, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
