Having just finished up our Fourth of July festivities (can you believe it’s come and gone already?), and with the month well on its way, I can think of no gemstone more appropriate than the ruby. As the birthstone of July, it’s patriotic, and its sizzling color evokes what we are all feeling here in the Northeast: very, very hot. Take a look at the ruby products that got the most attention on Marketplace this week.
A-One Gems Loose Variety
The trio of loose rubies pictured from A-One Gems highlights the broad selection available from the diamond merchant. With a large variety in different shapes and sizes, there’s a ruby for every jewelry design.
Omi Gems Cushion-Cut Ruby
Omi Gems’ Marketplace showroom was another big destination for ruby-lovers this week. The image depicts a cushion-cut ruby, but the company, like A-One above, offers a wide variety of high-quality stones.
Atelier Minyon’s Bat Ring
Atelier Minyon designer Alp Sagnak is well known for turning eerie creatures into stunning designs, and this bat ring is no exception. The 18k gold and oxidized silver creation is accented with a ruby and diamonds.
Vancox’s Freeform Earrings
Rubies of all sizes decorate this beautiful pair of free-form earrings from Vancox. The yellow gold drops are accented with diamonds that line the whimsical, wavy shapes.
Omi Privé’s Ruby Bracelet
Omi Privé’s platinum piece is set with 7.67 cts. t.w. round-cut rubies and is accented with 3.54 cts. t.w. pavé-set diamonds. The 18k yellow gold detailing on the prongs and inside of the bracelet adds to the spectacular piece.
