The month of July celebrates with the birthstone of Ruby, the colour of love, desire and passion. The most famous of coloured gemstones, it is said that rubies will give the wearer health, wealth, wisdom and success in love.
Imagine the largest ruby at an amazing 25.59 carats! At the astonishing price of US$32.4 million it achieved at auction in 2015, it set a new world record. The iconic Elizabeth Taylor collection with her incredible rubies became the most valuable jewellery collection ever sold at auction smashing all records at US$115 million.
Victoria loves to create and design with rubies, teaming their rich, vibrant tones with the softness of rose gold. Rubies are an increasingly popular choice for engagement rings for couples looking for unique alternative to diamonds. Second only to diamonds in hardness, it's an ideal stone to wear every day. Rubies, after all, were once the stones of ancient kings and queens, and who doesn't want to look down at their hand and feel like she rules the world?
Victoria Buckley currently has an extensive collection of stunning ruby rings, stacking bands, earrings and necklaces for you to enjoy in the Salon this July.
