10 Ruby Jewelry Statement Pieces to Wear

on Jul 14, 2015 10:15 AM

Ruby – July's birthstone – is a very classic gemstone. Hailed as “king of the gems,” its vivid red hue has been spotted on everyone from Elizabeth Taylor to Jessica Simpson.

Just because ruby jewelry has been around forever doesn’t mean its style hasn’t evolved.

Check out these 10 on-trend pieces, all featuring one or more ruby stones:

Statement Cocktail Rings

The Tiger Lily Ring from Erica Courtney features 18K yellow gold, a 5.49 ct. pink spinel, 1.49 ctw. of pink tourmalines, 1.35 ctw. of diamonds and 1.26 ctw. of rubellites. We love how the combination of warm-hued pink, red, and gold looks together.

Without the diamond halos of the Tiger Lily ring, Stephen Webster’s 18K rose gold ring has a more casual feel. The geometric shapes keep these red garnets, rubies, amethysts and amethyst crystals looking modern.

Another Erica Courtney creation, this Flower Mosaic Ring incorporates multiple jewelry trends: colored gemstones and elements of nature. We love the detail of the crisscross diamond bands.

A Watch, a Necklace and Some Earrings

Delaneau’s Grace Stars watch features 118 star rubies and star sapphires, combining for a total carat weight of 254. The dial is also a specific type of ruby, called a ruby heart. Now that’s a stylish way to tell time!

Here’s another two-trend combo, this time from Wendy Yue. Her two-toned necklace features multiple colored gemstones – champagne diamonds, tsavourites, rubellite, pink sapphire, ruby, white diamonds and golden diamonds – and is designed in the trending open collar form.

More elements of nature can be found in these Farah Kahn Floral Bliss Earrings. For a cool $10,990, you can have 3.43 cts of white diamonds and 9.25 cts of Mozambique rubies, artfully arranged in a floral motif. That’s one way to stand out in a crowd.

A Rainbow from Head to Fingertip

If you want to fully embrace the colored gemstone trend, why not incorporate every color of the rainbow? That’s exactly what Fabergé did with their Emotion Multi Coloured collection. Available as a ring, pendant or charm, you can flaunt an array of round colored gemstones, all nestled in 18K yellow gold.

Passion Red Engagement Rings

Deemed the wedding stone, ruby is supposed to keep passion alive and promote lasting love and contentment in marriage. Whether or not that’s true, we still love a well-done ruby engagement ring.

Any of these pieces would be a great buy, but they can also serve as inspiration if you need to reset some heirloom jewelry adorned with rubies.

No matter how you style your ruby jewelry, make sure you take proper care of the July birthstone. Follow Gem Institute of America’s guidelines for ruby cleaning and care, and your stones will stay red-hot.

Ruby gem is one of the most precious gems, it's very beautiful. I like all 10 ruby jewelry, the color and design are very pretty. It's very majestic in the eyes.

Rubies can be beautifully displayed in any setting and can be worn on a daily basis. I think the most popular way of displaying the rich reds is to place it in yellow gold. The contrast allows the red hue to be drawn out by the yellow properties, making for an aesthetically richer stone.
