About The 15 Year Anniversary Gift
Rubies are the most valuable form of corundum. Any other color of corundum is a sapphire; the term “ruby” is reserved for red corundum gems. One of the most valuable shades is called pigeon’s blood, a vibrant red with a very slight purple undertone.
15 Year Anniversary Ring Designs
Geometric shapes, sharp lines, bold colors, and symmetrical ornamentation are notable hallmarks of Art Deco design. This was a decisive change from earlier jewelry eras that featured more natural, flowing designs.
Burma Ruby - The most valuable type of ruby often comes from Myanmar and are sometimes referred to as Burmese rubies.
Treatment - Nearly all rubies on the market are heat-treated to improve the color and clarity. This is a standard and permanent treatment. Some rubies flouresce with an intense red under even a low level of ultraviolet light, like the amount in sunlight. This makes these rubies look especially intensely red.
Inclusions - Almost all rubies have very slight inclusions sometimes called "silk". Some inclusions add to the stone’s beauty, especially the long needles of rutile that create star rubies.
Durability - Rubies are highly sought after for their durability. Rated as a 9.0 on the Mohs scale of hardness, ruby is only slightly less hard than diamond and is very resistant to scratches, cracks, chips, and other damage.
