If you are looking for an alternative engagement ring featuring Ruby, one important fact to considered is that you won’t find a gem larger that 3 Carats so, you need to stay within this range size.

Another clever suggestion for your engagement ring is to surround the ruby with a diamond pave this will allow also a more subtle choice of metal like 18K white gold according to the design.
