For those looking for a non-traditional engagement ring, the captivating beauty of a stunning ruby is all that is needed to symbolise one’s love for another. Ruby engagement rings are unusual, dynamic and elegant, and can be worked into a number of different styles and settings for that all-important unique touch.
Representing passion, eternal love and romance, the fiery red hue of a ruby stone is the perfect choice in creating an engagement ring with a difference. The intensity of a ruby stone represents the depth of our emotions and the intensity of love from one person to another. What’s more, rubies are a versatile stone that will compliment a myriad of different precious metals, allowing you the flexibility to play around with different styles and looks to find the perfect ring for the specific look you are wanting to achieve. Rubies are also second in line to the hardness of a diamond, making them a particularly hardy, robust gemstone to use in such an elegant style of ring.
Rubies can be incorporated into an engagement ring by featuring the gemstone as a central piece, or by using them as side accompaniments in a beautiful three stone engagement ring design, for example. For some, a design with one large ruby stone can sometimes be a little too daring or can distract from the elegance of other neighbouring rings, so using smaller ones either side of a diamond can introduce a splash of colour to the hand without overdoing it. Aside from complimenting a ruby with a design that communicates a sense of the very finest in jewellery craftsmanship, the stone can just be admired for its natural colour alone. The richness and vibrancy of a ruby can vary from one cut to another, but we have a number of popular designs here at Berry’s that showcase this special gemstone in a variety of different ways.
Our Berry’s 18ct White Gold Ruby And Diamond Cluster Ring is a rare handmade design that celebrates the beauty of a ruby in two different forms. Four larger rubies are placed at the centre of the design, separated by five smaller cuts held into place by elegant white gold sets and surrounded by a dazzling array of sparkling brilliant cut diamonds. The choice of the plain 18ct white gold band is a clever addition, helping to keep the design tidy and precise, with vivid colour breaking up the collection of shimmering diamonds.
Another favourite design of ours is the Berry’s 18ct White Gold Ruby And Diamond Vintage Style Ring. The stunning design boasts a large magnetising oval-shaped ruby stone set at the centre, surrounded by a pave set surround in this unique vintage-inspired layout. This style in engagement ring helps to bring a vibrant splash of colour to the hand whilst remaining simple and defined. Completing our collection is the attractive Berry’s Platinum Cushion Cut Ruby & Diamond Set Surround Ring. The meticulously assembled brilliant cut diamonds positioned around a central cushion cut ruby, is something quite extraordinary. The unique design is finished with 2 baguette cut diamonds on either side of the gemstone, and a plain platinum band to compliment the luster and brilliance of each individual diamond.
