As the world moves further from the traditional, there really is no need to stick to the classic diamond wedding ring. Our collection of ruby wedding rings offers an opportunity to find something truly unique.
Rubies being used in jewellery has a long history. From royalty to ancient warriors, many have used this gemstone for protection, peace and decoration.
We know how important it is to understand everything about the ring you are buying, right down to the gemstone encased within it. So, we've put together some information on what makes ruby wedding rings so special.
The Ruby Gemstone
Rubies are one of the most precious gemstones that have ever been discovered. They offer a greater price per carat of any other gem, and it really is no wonder why.
To form a ruby, corundum and chromium must come together under extreme pressure and heat. As corundum is a rare mineral and if there is the presence of commonplace iron, rubies cannot be formed. It is therefore a very rare occurrence that rubies are made.

Once even mentioned in the Bible, civilization's love of rubies can be documented for centuries past. While the formation of the first rubies can be traced back to more than 50 million years ago, modern rubies date back to Indian mines almost 2,000 years ago.
It is no secret that royalty love these stones, including them in coronation rings and other ceremonial talismans. And, for ancient warriors, rubies were used to protect and offer good luck.
As one of the most expensive precious stones available, it is no wonder that they have been one of the most sought after for years.
Ruby Wedding Rings
When it comes to your wedding ring, there are more aspects to consider than simply the gemstone. So, once you have identified your chosen gem, it’s time to consider the band that it will be placed on.
A modern, increasingly popular option is a rose gold band. Offering the strength and durability you need, this beautiful metal is one that will truly stand the test of time.
Alternatively, if you are looking for something a little more traditional, why not try a platinum ring? Platinum is known as one of the strongest options available, and its cool silver colouring goes with any gem you can imagine.
At Diamond Boutique, we believe in helping you pick your perfect ring every step of the way. So, if you’re looking for a little inspiration, head over to our website. Or, give our experts a call to find out what they’d recommend.
