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.
