Ravishing Ruby Engagement Rings

Updated on September 2, 2012

Ravishing Ruby Engagement Rings

Ruby engagement rings are beautiful expressions of love and passion. Whether your lovely lady has requested a ruby or another colored gemstone, you can feel good knowing that choosing a ruby ring is perfectly acceptable. Hopefully, after reading this page, you will consider it as easy task!

While rubies are a precious stone, they are often less expensive than diamonds, so they make a great choice for an engagement ring. The red color of a ruby is also very exciting and catches the eye. This is great if your lady likes to be noticed!

I have personally selected various ruby engagement rings for your consideration. They are in several different metals and have different price points.

About Rubies

Ruby Engagement Rings

Rubies are the red form of a crystalline mineral called corundum. Other shades of corundum, such as blue, pink, or green are sapphires.

Rubies are very desirable due to their beautiful red color that reminds people of love and passion. In general, the redder the gemstone, the more expensive it costs.

Rubies can range from a deep, beautiful red to a lighter and more pink color. Stones are often heat treated to enhance their red color.

Ruby is also the birthstone of July.

Since a photo of a gemstone can look different depending on your monitor and other factors, always rely on the sellers official description of the color of the gemstone.

About Engagement Ring Metals

Ruby Engagement Rings

Engagement rings are crafted in several different metal options. Each option has its own advantages. If you aren't sure which metal to choose, check out your lady's collection of jewelry. She probably leans towards a particular color of metal. Once you know that, you can narrow down your selections.

The most expensive choice is a white metal called platinum. One of the biggest advantages of platinum is that it works great for women with metal allergies. It is also a dense metal so it is very durable and long lasting.

Naturally yellow gold is a common choice for engagement rings, but white gold is even more popular right now. White Gold is an alloy of gold, which means another metal has been added to change its color. If nickel is used, it can often cause skin problems. White gold is sometimes rhodium plated to enhance the whiteness of the jewelry. It needs to be re-plated periodically to keep its color.

Gold in jewelry is usually 18K, 14K, or 10K. The higher the K value, the purer the gold. Since 24K gold is very soft, other metals have to be added to it to make it more durable. 18K gold is the most expensive of these three options.

Another popular choice for engagement rings is sterling silver. Silver is a lovely white color and is very affordable compared to the other metals. This is also a great choice for women with gold allergy.

Non precious metals such as tungsten, titanium, and palladium are available also. These are great for people with allergies, special work circumstances, or environmental concerns. They are also substantially cheaper than platinum, gold, and even silver. It is usually not possible to have these rings resized.
