10 Ruby Jewelry Statement Pieces to Wear
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.
