The Ruby

Rubies have been a hot commodity since one of the earliest records of the stones being transported on the North Silk Road in China around 200 BC. Known for their association with wealth and royalty, the ruby is considered one of the four precious stones, together with sapphire, emerald and diamond. One of the largest ruby gemstones in the world is admired at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. The 23.1 carat Burmese ruby set in a platinum ring with diamonds, was donated by businessman and philanthropist Peter Buck in memory of his late wife Carmen Lúcia.
If you’re an avid ruby lover or think the history is so interesting you can’t pass up an opportunity of sporting such a beautiful stone, we’ve found a few celebrities who wear the precious stone best to give you a lovely dose of inspiration.
