Red Gemstones – not Rubies

A special pair of pyrope-almandine garnet ear drops. Set in 18K white gold with a nice mix of pear shapes, marquise and round diamonds, we create a very pretty pair of earrings in a romantic style.

This pair of earrings was created as a part of a bride’s wedding fine jewellery set, to be worn with the bridal gown. Set in a design that is special enough to be worn with her bridal gown on the actual day, yet not overly complicated that it cannot be worn more frequently thereafter, brainstorming such a design requires the art of intricate balance.

If you like a red gemstone, no need to yearn for a ruby (heat or unheat). The price of a unheated ruby is out-of-reach for most. So, will one settle for a heated ruby? Why would you? The price of a heated ruby is still far more pricey than most or all other types of red gemstones which are unheat, untreated and 100% natural. So why pay the high price for a gemstone that is heated, ruby or otherwise?

Below is a list of red gemstones that are usually available as an unheated, untreated and 100% natural gemstone:

  • Red Garnet
  • Rhodolite Garnets (exist often in shades of purple or magenta, similar to the colour of wine, but they do come in red hues as well)
  • Red Beryl
  • Red Spinel

With the use of fancy shape diamonds, one is assured that it is an entirely customised piece of art. Hardly seen in your typical off-the-shelf fine jewellery, fancy shape diamonds help to create a piece of wearable art that is uniquely yours.
