About Ruby
Ruby

Stone Information & Mining

Ruby is the most valuable variety of the corundum mineral species, which also includes sapphire. Rubies can command the highest per-carat price of any colored stone. This makes ruby one of the most important gems in the colored stone market. In its purest form, the mineral corundum is colorless. Trace elements that become part of the mineral's crystal structure cause variations in its color. Chromium is the trace element that causes ruby's red, which ranges from an orangy red to a purplish red. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means "red." The glowing red of ruby suggested an inextinguishable flame burning in the stone, even shining through clothing and able to boil water. The most renowned rubies, like those from Myanmar, the Himalayas, and northern Vietnam, typically form in marble. They're found in layers that are distributed irregularly within the surrounding marble. In other locations, rubies can be found in basalt rocks. Rubies from these sources can have higher iron content, which can make the rubies darker and less intense in color.

Legend & Lore

Ruby is one of the most historically significant colored stones. Rubies are mentioned four times in the Bible, in association with attributes like beauty and wisdom. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, ruby is called ratnaraj, or "king of precious stones." Ruby retained its importance with the birth of the western world and became one of the most sought-after gems of European royalty and the upper classes. Many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love. Desire for ruby is just as great today as it always has been. As a symbol of passion, ruby makes an ideal romantic gift. Consumers are drawn to the lush color because it also signifies wealth and success.

Color

Color is the most significant factor affecting a ruby's value. The finest ruby has a pure, vibrant red to slightly purplish red color. As the color becomes too orangy or more purplish, the ruby moves down the quality scale. The highest-quality rubies have vivid color saturation.

Cleaning

Warm soapy water is always safe. Ultrasonic and steam cleaners are usually safe for untreated, heat-treated, and lattice diffusion treated stones. Fracture-filled, cavity-filled, or dyed material should only be cleaned with a damp cloth.

About Baguette Cut

In French, baguette means "rod". It also refers to a long loaf of crusty bread.

In the jewelry realm, however, the baguette signifies classic, regal beauty. Elongated in length, this cut features non-beveled corners and usually two rows of facets. Similar to the emerald cut, the baguette lacks the sparkle of a brilliant cut. Yet, its few number of facets result in rich color and clarity. On a symbolic note, the baguette speaks to great intelligence, protection, and divine contemplation.

Good Blue Sapphire Color Purchased when first presented the color is good the ring is a little small but kept anyway due to color. 02-13-15
Fabulous Sapphire Stones! Bought the size 5 in hopes it would fit my pinkie finger and it did! Looks vintage and the stones are all identical and set perfectly! Really love this ring and especially the fact that it fits my pinkie so I can wear with other rings as well. So happy to have the opportunity to get this on a Lunchtime Special price - WOO HOOOOO!!!! 01-12-15
Love this Ring I now own this in Ruby, Diamonique and Sapphire. I love all of them. The style is so different and I like that. Reminds me of old time glamour. 11-17-14
Are you kidding me???? Bought this ring in both ruby and sapphire. They are both lovely rings...they look vintage, they look like platinum, and the stones are to die for!!! Really don't understand the bad reviews...some of them are dated back to 2012, so maybe the QC on these rings improved over time. I hesitated to purchase these b/c of the bad reviews. Glad I got them. They are gorgeous!!! 06-20-14
Blue Sapphires are PERFECT I really don't understand the ngeative reviews for this ring? I have this ring in blue sapphire and it is perfect for any occasion. I find myself wearing this ring with blue jeans and black-tie events due to the vintage-look. I really looks like platinum and blue sapphires and I receive multiple compliments every time I wear it. I'm a size 6 in JR rings and my fingers are long and narrow. This ring is absolutely beautiful on my finger and when I know I'm going to the little blue-box store I make sure I have on a JR piece. I want to order the ruby one for my mother. 04-21-14
I LOVE this ring! This is a beautiful ring! I don't understand the negative reviews. I have ordered this ring in two sizes. Where else can you buy a GENUINE ruby ring for this price, at this quality? Judith Ripka never disappoints in quality! The ring is lovely, very comfortable, and the ruby stones are a bright red color, all well-matched, and draw a lot of attention! This is a BARGAIN! I absolutely love this ring. I would love for Judith to bring in more genuine ruby pieces in her collection. 08-12-13
not up to Ripka standards I received this ring in the ruby. Very disappointing, the rubies were very poor quality. They were even scratched and on more then just 1 of the rubies. For that price I knew it was not going to be great, but not as poor as it turned out to be. So I had to send it back. 04-16-13
Center stones not placed evenly Look at the picture and you will see the stones have gaps and are not evenly set. 03-27-13
NOT a Ripka Wow This is a small ring with dull diamoniques and dark sapphires. It's NOT a Ripka Wow as we became accustomed to in days gone by. The color of the silver looks more like stainless steel than sterling. 02-20-13
Fantastic Ruby! The star of the ring are the beautiful rubies. Judith always uses the best gemstones in her pieces and that is why I am a huge fan. The ring is simple yet beautiful! 02-15-13
Beautiful I've had the coordinating bracelet for a few months now and decided to order the ring in the sapphire. After reading some of the reviews, I was worried, but then it came. All I can say is BEAUTIFUL. The sapphires are a deep velvety blue -- and natural sapphires. And while baguettes were never my favorite cut, they are perfect for this stone. It totally brings out the color in an amazing way. The entire ring is executed beautifully. And for women who want something bold for everyday wear without feeling like it is over the top, get this ring. And add the Sapphire Fleur de Lis Pin/Enhancer to the mix and you are set to go! 07-20-12
OK ring This ring is not the glamour piece I would have expected from Judith Ripka. It just does not have the wow factor that some of her other pieces have. 06-06-12
