Jewelry bloggers everywhere can thank Rihanna for giving us a month’s worth of content inspiration. The 19.47 cts. sugarloaf ruby ring from Bayco that the singer sported during this year’s Super Bowl halftime show deserves its own fan club—and might just tip the scales on ruby demand in the coming months.
Not that ruby ever needed a celebrity’s help, but a red ruby is arguably not as universally beloved as, say, the twinkling flashes of an opal or the cool tones of a blue or green tourmaline.
Yet ruby is as timeless as a diamond, and has long had its audiences bewitched. Its recent spotlight only serves to remind us of its prowess.
As cocktail rings once again rise in popularity, we’re reminded of the aspirational-level good a serious setting featuring ruby is. For those with the means—or with the ability to borrow (or, in the case of many celebrities, both)—a ruby statement ring is the ultimate accessory to, well, make a statement.
