Dior Joaillerie, Soie Dior ‘Froufrou Rubis’ ring
|Ruby have always been one of the 'big four' in fine jewels, alongside emeralds and sapphires. Always scarce and ALWAYS precious, fine ruby remains in fashion, and none higher than the pomegranate coloured 'pigeon's blood' variety.|
Bvlgari, Cuore di Roma necklace.
|In the hierarchy of precious gems, the ruby sits as the cherry at the top: the Indians call rubies ratnaraj, the “king of precious stones”. Burmese stones, from the fabled Mogok area, are today so rare they are virtually unobtainable, a growing scarcity that has driven their value to record levels.|
Cartier, Resonances Bracelet
Graff, Ruby and Diamond Earrings
|Mozambique rubies have emerged on the world stage over the past few years. Even so, larger sizes remain highly elusive. So rare are rubies that heat-treated stones, once taboo, are now included in Sotheby’s and Christie’s auctions.|
