Diamonds may be forever, but rubies are for sometimes. After all, the stones vibrant and intense colour make it a stunning jewellery wear for special occasions.
As July is just around the corner, we here at JewelStreet believed this to be a perfect time to look at some of the most famous ruby jewellery pieces worn by royalty. Among royalty and the upper classes, rubies were thought to guarantee good health, wisdom, wealth, and success in love. They’ve become some of the most sought-after gems.
Here on JewelStreet we have rounded up an extravagant, luxury, royal-inspired jewellery collection - proving you don’t need to have royal blood to be a royal.

Sarah Ferguson - Ruby Engagement Ring
Next on our list, we have Sarah Ferguson's showstopper ring. In 1986, Prince Andrew is said to have proposed to Ferguson with an oval-cut Burmese ruby because it matched the colour of her vibrant red hair. After the proposal, ruby rings were in very high demand and continue to grow in popularity. Of course, JewelStreet provide only the very best.
