The setting is fundamental to ensuring an engagement ring’s center stone stays secured in place while also displaying the gem’s beauty. Because rubies are more durable than other gemstones, they are safe to secure in many different settings, including prong and bezel settings that hold the gemstone in place while showing off their brilliance.
Accent Diamonds or Gemstones
Create an exquisite and unique expression of your love that speaks to your personal style with various accent designs. To enhance the captivating luster of your ruby engagement ring, add a halo of pavé diamond stones for a look that exudes royal elegance.
For an additional burst of color, consider colored gemstone accents. Ruby plays gorgeously against a pink sapphire and will create a mesmerizing, feminine glow when set in yellow or rose gold. For an extraordinary combination of color and contrast, an amethyst accent next to your ruby is an excellent choice as well.
Create a symbol of your commitment to your partner that showcases their personal style. For a sophisticated style, an elegant pear shaped ruby set in luminous white gold or platinum is an excellent choice. If you want a look that exudes nostalgic romance, consider a three-stone design with an oval-shaped ruby at the center, a pavé diamond halo and rectangular rubies flanked on either side set in gleaming yellow gold.
