Ruby Eternity Rings Handmade in Sussex

Ruby Eternity Rings: Ruby Old Cut Diamond Eternity Ring

Ruby eternity rings are a wonderful alternative to a purely diamond eternity ring. Perfect for anyone who loves a splash of colour. Rubies are also the birthstone for July, and the traditional wedding anniversary gift for the 40th wedding anniversary. Ruby works particularly well with diamonds for contrast. You can also combine rubies with other gemstones such as sapphires. Rubies can be cut into many different shapes, we love to create unusual eternity rings with square or baguette cut rubies.

By far the most popular combination for a ruby eternity ring, is to set the rubies with diamonds in yellow gold. The warmth of the gold brings out the red in the rubies and the cool white diamonds provide contrast. Rubies also look fabulous in platinum or white gold, the vivid red really stands out against the white metal. When choosing an eternity ring it is important to consider what you will wear it next to. If you are going to be wearing the ring next to another ring then it must be made from the same metal. Some people choose to wear their eternity ring on another finger so that they can choose something a little bit different to their existing jewellery.

Many of our ruby eternity rings have rubover settings where the rubies are fully enclosed in a metal surround. This setting style is very popular because of its contemporary style and because they are very practical to wear. Other setting styles include claw set and channel set. Sometimes these styles can be ideal when you are matching an existing ring set in this way.

Unusual Ruby Eternity Rings

If you are looking for a ring that will stand alone you can get really creative. You can also choose a more substantial design. We love to create these really unusual pieces. Here are a few of our favourites:

Ruby Eternity Rings side hammered ruby side hammered ring

Our Ruby Eternity Ring Side Hammered is a great design if you are looking for something a bit chunkier. The rubies measure 6x4mm and the overall width of the finished ring is 10mm. The undulating edge of the side-hammered metal gives it a fluid organic feel.

Wider rings don’t necessarily have to have larger stones. These two rings are made up of lots of smaller diamonds and rubies to create a wider band overall. With this look you can either create a single wide band or stack of three narrower rings that slot together to create the wider effect.

Another way to create a band with more impact is with the metalwork itself. This intricate filigree style ring is ornate and impactful whilst also remaining delicate and feminine.
