The gem of love, rubies are often given as a gift to show the strength of one’s relationship

Spoil yourself or a loved one this festive season with a piece of ruby jewellery. The fiery stone is considered the king of gemstones and can vary in shade from blood red to pink. Radiating warmth and vitality, rubies have long been associated with romance, making jewellery set with the gem the perfect gift for that special someone this Christmas.
