Rubies are one of the three most popular color gemstones. They are a type of corundum which retains a high degree of luster even with minimal care. They rate as a 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness and only diamonds are harder than them.
COLOR: Rubies come in colors ranging from pink to deep red. The most valuable rubies are deep red - the color of pigeon's blood while light pink rubies are actually designated as sapphires.
CUT: Ruby jewelry is usually set with stones in traditional round or oval cuts. Interesting shapes such as marquise, heart and teardrop are particularly suitable for necklaces and rings.
WEIGHT: The weight of a ruby is expressed in carats (ct) to 2 decimal places - 1 ct = 0.20 g. With earrings and jewelry which have multiple rubies, we always state the total number of carats of all the stones.
CARE: Dip ruby jewelry into warm soapy water and clean it with a soft brush. Protect the stone from pressure and temperature shocks.
In the process of evaluating and certifying diamonds, they are assessed based on four fundamental parameters which are called the 4Cs: cut, clarity, color, and carat. These four properties then significantly influence the price of a diamond.
CUT: The right cut gives a diamond its radiant luster. The most popular cut is a round one known as the brilliant cut. Diamonds can also be cut into a wide array of “fantasy” cuts which include the marquise, baguette, heart, teardrop, oval, and princess (a three-sided or four-sided cut with sharp corners which is especially popular for engagement rings).
CLARITY: Clarity is determined by the number, size, and distribution of any inclusions (internal impurities) in a diamond:
- IF (Internally Flawless) – clear diamonds without any inclusions,
- VVS 1, VVS 2 (Very Very Slightly Included) – diamonds with very small inclusions,
- VS 1, VS 2 (Very Slightly Included) – diamonds with small inclusions,
- SI 1, SI 2 (Slightly Included) – diamonds with inclusions which can be seen with a magnifying glass,
- I1, I2, I3 (Included), also labeled as “P” in the Czech Republic – diamonds with medium to larger inclusions visible to the naked eye.
COLOR: The color of colorless to yellow diamonds is evaluated based on an international scale:
- D to F – colorless diamonds;
- G to J – near colorless diamonds;
- K to M – diamonds with a touch of yellow;
- N to Z – diamonds with a brown-yellow color.
Other colors of diamonds are simply called fancy. Some of our color diamonds are treated to enhance their color.
CARAT: The weight of diamonds is quoted in carats (ct), expressed to two decimal places, for example 0.25 ct. One (1) ct is equal to 0.2 grams. With earrings and jewelry which has multiple diamonds, we always state the total number of carats of all the diamonds.
