Most Rubies show purplish red to orangey-red hues; however, the overall colour (colour is a combination of hue, shade and saturation) can provide gem dealers with an indication of the stone’s original geographic origin. Ruby shows pleochroism, which means that the colour varies when viewing the gemstone in different directions and many can appear incredibly bright when exposed to the sun. Ruby has been a popular gemstone for centuries and has been set in many famous historic pieces of jewellery. The famous mines in Mogok, Burma were first explored as early as the 6th century AD. In Sanskrit, the Ruby was known as “ratnaraj” which stood for “the king of precious gems”, and later “ratnanayaka”; “leader of all precious stones”. Its more recent name, Ruby, is derived from the Latin word “rubers” simply meaning “red”. Ruby is the birthstone for July and is also the anniversary gemstone for both the 15th and 40th year of marriage.
Don’t get me wrong, I am partial to Diamonds. However, Cubic Zirconia is similar to Diamond in brilliance and clarity but is flawless. It is made in laboratories in large quantities and as such is much more affordable and in many cases, ethical... It is almost as hard as Diamond at 8.5 on the Mohs Scale in comparison to a Diamond's 10. It is not a Diamond though it has many Diamond-like qualities. Isn’t it time that we stop lusting after the Diamonds we will have "one day" and rock something just as beautiful until that day arrives? Why not?!
