Beautiful Ruby

Ruby is the official birthstone for July. It belongs to a family of stones called Corundum, which also includes Sapphire. Rubies are also used to celebrate 40th wedding anniversaries. Rubies have not been the most requested stones from our customers at PIKE, however we have had had the opportunity to make some beautiful rings for ruby lovers over the years.  The value of rubies has increased dramatically over the last two years (read more here), and so we would suggest having your ruby jewellery valuations updated to make sure you are properly covered.

Here are two of our favourite PIKE ruby pieces:



And then some of our international favourites:
