After diamonds and sapphires, Ruby is a very special precious gems and is considered one of the 5 cardinal gems. It has been predilected by Queens, Princesses, Religious Clergy and other and it is easy to understand why.
The red colour of Ruby, can vary in tonality and intensity defining its quality. This intensity can be quite charming. It has a hardness of 9 in the scale of Mosh, characteristic that makes this gem a great choice for an alternative engagement Ring.
Australia is such a bountiful land and Ruby has been found on the easter seaboard and the mining operations are restricted in the NSW and Northern Territories.
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.
