Ruby Gemstone Jewellery Designs

Rubies range in colour from a vibrant bright red to a deep dark reddish brown colour - some are even tinged with blue.


Our range of Burmese rubies are a part of the Corundum family of minerals. The colour is due to the presence of Chromium. There may be slight inclusions and zoning present, due to the nature of the stone. Rubies can be referred to as ‘corundum’ which comes from the ‘Sanskrit word ‘kuruvinda’. The Sanskrit name for rubies is ‘ratnaraj’ translating to “king of the gemstones”.


We currently stock round, oval and cabochon shaped red ruby stones, ranging in sizes 2mm to 4mm. Alternatively, you can buy a pack of between 25 to 30 round stones varying in size from 1.5 to 3mm. Individual packs may vary.
