The Sunrise Ruby is the world's most expensive Ruby, most expensive coloured gemstone, and most expensive gemstone other than a diamond. In May 2015, it sold at auction in Switzerland to an anonymous buyer for US$30 million. Ruby is the birthstone for July and is also the anniversary gemstone for both the 15th and 40th year of marriage.

Said to be “a girl’s best friend”, the name 'Diamond' derives from the ancient Greek word ‘adamas’ meaning invincible. The quality of this gem’s colour, clarity and cut are more tightly measured than for any other gemstone, and although there are various standards used across the globe, that of the Gemological Institution of America (GIA) is the most widely used.  The value of similar carat weight of Diamonds can vary dramatically, based on their clarity and colour - and to some extents more importantly - how well the gemstone has been cut. Its very high refractive index is what gives the gem its famous sparkle; its strong lustre is described as an adamantine lustre.

Wedding rings are typically made of Gold. It is long-lasting and unaffected by the passage of time and may aid in the ring symbolism of the perfection the marriage signifies. Because of the softness of pure (24k) Gold, it is usually alloyed with other metals for use in jewellery, altering its hardness and ductility, melting point, colour and other properties. Nickel is toxic, and its release from nickel white gold is controlled by legislation in Europe. High-karat White Gold alloys are more resistant to corrosion than are either pure Silver or Sterling Silver. By 2014, the Gold jewellery industry was escalating despite a dip in gold prices.

Different gemstones need different care – remember that many jewellery cleaning products can harm softer, porous or organic gems. If in doubt, a soft moist cloth is suitable for cleaning any gem.

Jewellery is best stored individually in a soft pouch or a box with compartments away from sunlight and where harder gemstones can’t scratch softer ones.
