Ruby rings for women
The magnificent womens ruby engagement rings are truly royal jewelry. The beautiful gemstone is one of the stones of the “Big Four” (it includes rubies, emeralds, sapphires, and alexandrites) and symbolizes love, health, and wisdom. The cost of these gemstones varies in size and quality of the stone. The most expensive shade is “Pigeon Blood”. Already now we can say that there are fewer and fewer rubies in nature. Therefore, these pieces are jewelry for those who truly understand and appreciate the beauty of natural gemstones.
Why are women's engagement ruby rings so rare?
Every year, places where you can get rubies are becoming less and less. It has always been a rare stone, especially when it comes to large sizes. The Mogok Valley (Upper Burma) and Thailand are the best places to mine rubies. Both Thailand and Burma consider the gem to be their national stone. The word comes from the Latin "ruber", which means red. This word was used to describe all such color stones, including spinel, tourmaline, and pomegranate. But now it concerns only rubies.
Are red engagement rings for women a good idea?
Of course, this is a great idea. In addition to the extraordinary beauty of the precious stone, you receive original ruby engagement rings for women. There are so many classic rings out there now that deviating a little from the standard is bold and unique. A quality natural gemstone is a good engagement jewel and here's why.

The most famous ruby engagement rings
The most famous ruby engagement ring is, of course, the one that Princess Margaret had. The design of the jewelry was inspired by Margaret's middle name, Rose. Old cut diamonds, following the delicate contours of petals, surrounded a set of three oval rubies weighing approximately 5-6 carats. It is unknown who now owns the royal decoration. The last mention of this was in 2006. Then the ring was put up for auction at Christie's in Geneva. However, who became its owner was not reported, so it is unlikely that we will see this decoration in public ever again.
By the way, it was Princess Margaret who started the tradition of using engagement rings with colored stones. Before her, all the rings were exclusively with diamonds. So, for example, the daughter of Sarah and Andrew, Princess Eugenie, received for her engagement a ring similar to her mother’s ring, but only with a pink padparadscha sapphire, which means “lotus color” in Sinhalese; previously such stones were classified as rubies because in their way Padparadscha flowers are more like rubies than sapphires. Eugenia married Jack Brooksbank in the fall of 2018.
In the modern fashion world, red jewelry can be not only beautiful evening or cocktail jewels. Many modern brides choose ruby and diamond rings as engagement and wedding bands. If you decide on such models, then in our online store there are such options as ruby and diamond rings and just red gemstone jewelry. You can safely combine rubies with other precious stones, but ruby and diamond rings look especially good.
Why do women's red jewelry dream?
Let’s say right away that all such dreams are a good sign. So, for example, to see this beautiful scarlet gem in a dream means that you will soon meet an ideal partner and love for life. Also, such a dream promises prosperity.
If you dreamed of a woman's ring, this means a big profit, a promotion, or receiving a decent inheritance soon. Seeing a gold ring on your finger promises you a pleasant journey. And if you saw earrings with rubies in a dream, get ready for the appearance of heirs.
Ruby engagement rings are a great gift for those born in July. Gemstone is a July Birthstone and symbolizes love, romance, and passion thanks to its deep red hue. The color is similar to the color of blood, so rubies are often associated with life and vitality.
