8 Amazing Ruby Engagement Rings

Rubies have been one of the most valued gemstones for thousands of years, both in Eastern and Western cultures. Rubies were valued for their beauty and for the belief that they offered the wearer health, wealth, wisdom, romantic success, and the ability to live in peace with his or her enemies. Because red has long been associated with love and passion, a ruby makes a fitting focal point for an engagement ring.
At Brilliant Earth, we carry antique and vintage ruby engagement rings, some originating more than one hundred years ago during the Victorian era, and others from recent decades. Although we don’t carry new ruby engagement rings as one of our standard options you can often find ethically-sourced rubies in our gallery of Unique Colored Gemstones, and if you have your heart set on an engagement ring featuring an ethical red ruby we would be happy to source one for you. Here are eight breathtaking ruby engagement rings currently in our Antique and Vintage collection:

My favorite in this group is the Firenze, although all are beautiful! The ruby is a show-stopper, although flanked by beautiful sizable diamonds! Being a “”girlie-girl” (although I dislike the expression!) I also love the Roberta ring —the feminine, elegant look. I adore the vintage, Victorian look, jewelry and clothing.

My engagement ring is similar to the sylvana. I never wanted the whole diamond solitaire look.i also really like the Belina.
