There are two types of Real Rubies; natural Ruby and lab-grown Ruby. Lab-grown Ruby is chemically identical to natural Ruby mined from rock. Both are 100% real Ruby consisting of the same material.
Natural Ruby is mined in countries like Afghanistan, Burma, Pakistan, Vietnam, India, Sri Lanka. This mining process often involves conflict, forced labor and even child labor. We do not use these natural Rubies since we only offer Pure Gems.
Top quality natural Rubies are also very expensive costing up to €10.000 per carat and more. Almost all natural Rubies have impurities, lack of clarity and faded color. This is Another reason why we do not use any natural Rubies.
We only use Lab-grown Rubies. These real lab-grown Rubies are deep red Rubies of Top Quality. The Rubies are conflict-free and free from impurities. Lab-grown Rubies are also not enhanced or color treated.
Ruby is actually the same gemstone as Sapphire; the only difference being its color. The name Ruby simply comes from the Latin word ruber meaning: red.
Ruby mainly consist of Corundum. The element Corundum is aluminium oxide (Al2O3) in crystallized form. The red color of Ruby comes from the element chromium when it is combined with aluminium oxide.
Ruby is grown in a lab using the flame fusion method invented by the French chemist Auguste Verneuil in 1903. The process simulates how Ruby is created in nature. The creation of gemstones such as Rubies requires extreme heat being applied to the right mix of chemical elements.
The method requires a 100% pure powder form of the elements alumina mixed with chromium. For Ruby to be created the elements need to be heated at a temperature of at least 2000 °C in a highly specialized oven.
The heating of the elements happens using a complex method involving combustion (explosion) until the elements are melted. The melted elements leave the oven in small drops which become hard and together form the crystallized gemstone. This is how Real Pure Ruby of High Quality is created.
Finally the Ruby is being cut into Ruby Gemstones. Due to its Purity these Rubies have excellent clarity. They exhibit the best deep red color due to the perfect mix of elements used. The Rubies are crafted into excellent gemstone cuts by gemstone experts before they are finally set into our Ruby Jewelry.
