1. The word ruby comes from the Latin word “rubens” which means red.

2. Rubies are found in shades of red, from rich darkish red to pigeon blood red and pinkish red. The red hue comes from traces of the mineral chromium.

3. Ruby is the birthstone for July. It is also a traditional gift for those celebrating 15th or 40th anniversaries.

4. Rubies are extremely strong, registering 9 on the Mohs scale of hardness. They are as resilient as sapphires and only slightly softer than diamonds.

5. Rubies have been found all over the world, including in Myanmar (formerly Burma), Africa, Australia and the USA. The majority of rubies for sale at Israel-Diamonds originate in Myanmar, Thailand and other locations in Asia.

6. The most precious rubies are those with a full, rich red color with just a hint of blue tones. Originally, the finest rubies were mined in Myanmar and it is from there that the term Burmese ruby began to describe the finest rubies.

 7. Almost all rubies have flaws. Rubies without imperfections are exceptionally rare and command prices even higher than diamonds of a similar weight and quality.

 8. The world’s largest ruby is owned by a Chinese jewelry company. It weighs 8184 g (40920 Carat) and measures 5.11 x 5.43 x 5.70 inches.

 9. Rubies, because of their brilliant red hues, are often related to themes concerning the essence and vibrancy of life. If there is one gemstone that represents the passion of love, it is the ruby.

 10. Almost all natural rubies are treated to improve their color and strengthen them.

Summer is a state of mind

Yes, summer is here! And we finally got the opportunity to “travel” our diamonds around the greek islands. And because it’s summer and sunny, we are free to be playful, get creative with colours and come out with multiple, unexpected combinations.

Like this one, where rubies gave us the inspiration to create a “wrist party”. As for the statement ring, we’ re simply loving it. What about you?

A theory about leaves

The say that in nature, art is the flower and life is the green leaf.

In our case though, the flower is absent while the leaf is so beautiful that it becomes art.

We created these four leaf shaped diamond rings in four different colours. Someone would call them statement pieces.

We just call them our typical rings!

What happens when a diamond ring valued at $456,000 is bought for $13?

Thirty years ago, a woman in Isleworth, west London, bought an “exceptionally sized” ring she assumed was costume jewellery for £10 ($13) at a car boot sale. Now, after decades of wearing the ring daily, she’s about to get £350,000 ($455,000) for it at a Sotheby’s auction in July, if it sells for its expected price. That’s because the ring is actually a 26-carat, cushion-shaped white diamond from the 19th Century, according to the BBC. Head of Sotheby’s London jewellery department Jessica Wyndham called the ring a “one-off windfall, an amazing find.” According to the Evening Standard, the owners are “incredibly excited.” “Anyone would be in this position, it’s a life-changing amount of money,” she said. “No matter what your background is or what your past experiences have been, it’s going to revolutionise someone’s life.”
