Ruby – The Passion of Love

The Red Rubyoro de rey, gold of the king, custom design jeweller, winnipeg jeweller– representing the passion of love – the vibrancy and essence of life.  Rubies are found in shades of red, from rich darkish red to pigeon blood red and pinkish red. The red hue comes from traces of the mineral chromium.  The most precious rubies are those with a full, rich red color with just a hint of blue tones.  The ruby is the birthstone for July and traditional gift for celebrating 15th and 40th anniversaries.

Rubies are extremely strong and only slightly softer than diamonds and have been found all over the world, including in Myanmar (formerly Burma), Africa, Australia and the USA.

Originally, the finest rubies were mined in Myanmar and it is from there that the term Burmese ruby began to describe the finest rubies.
