For those wanting engagement rings that are romantic, feminine, and bold, few stones have the same allure as rubies. These deep red stones have been favoured for many decades. Working well in platinum, white gold, yellow gold, and rose gold engagement rings, rubies can be used on their own or alongside diamonds. If you are searching for a ring that will stand out for all the right reasons, this stone is sure to be a perfect choice.
Spectacular Ruby Engagement Rings
Some of the most eye-catching ruby engagement rings we’ve seen recently include the following:
Split Band Pave
Split band rings create soft lines that help to highlight centre stones while adding plenty of visual detail. When tiny pave diamonds are added, the effect is enhanced even further. A ruby in the centre and a rose gold band helps to bring an extra touch of romance to this unique ring. This style would work equally well with rubies as the pave stones and a centre diamond.
The symbolism behind three stone rings makes this style a favourite for many brides-to-be. Each stone represents your stage in the journey of life – your past, your present, and your future. Aside from its symbolism, this design also helps to balance the centre ruby, with diamond flanking the centre stone. A gleaming band in white gold or platinum further adds to the design.
Pear Cut Pave
Pear cut stones remain a classic choice, working especially well when surrounded by a pave halo. Tiny pave diamonds continue along the start of the band. Rose gold helps to soften this ring, but a cooler toned metal would also work well. This style can be worn with the tapered point facing up or down.
Double Band Marquise
For something dramatic and unique, this double band ring features a sleek marquise cut ruby, surrounded by tiny pave diamonds. Two delicate bands add even more of an unusual touch to this ring. Yellow gold helps the centre ruby stand out – a cooler metal or rose gold could also work equally well, however.
Twisted band rings are elegant yet surprisingly simple. This style works very well with pave stones and a simple cut. Here, a round cut ruby takes centre stage. The cool tone of the platinum band helps the ruby stand out, with the deep red hue drawing plenty of attention without being over the top.
In this interesting design, a delicate pave crown fits over the centre ruby. Tiny pave diamonds are added for a bit of sparkle, while a fine gold band helps the stone to stand out even further. This style would be especially good for those who favour less conventional rings.
What could be more romantic than a heart shaped ruby? In this ring, a heart ruby is set in the centre, with tiny pave stones set on the band. A cool toned metal helps the ruby stand out but you could also try a warmer toned metal for something more unusual.
Finally, perfect for those who prefer simple, minimal rings, this bezel set solitaire cut ring features a tiny ruby set on a thin gold band. This ring is subtle, understated, and elegant, with just enough sparkle to catch the light without being over the top.
