Loved for their deep red tones, Rubies are one of the most popular gems and have been throughout time. They're also relatively rare and usually quite expensive.
Technically a red sapphire, they're often found in the same deposits as sapphires of other colours, and this one arrived in a parcel of mixed sapphire from Madagascar.
At 0.5cts, this ruby is available for $220. Comes with certification, as do all my stones.
