Those who have July birthdays are lucky—their birthstone is the ruby. With that as our inspiration, we’re featuring four custom designed pieces that all center around the rich red stone. All of the designs shown feature lab-grown rubies and the accent stones are Contemporary Nexus Diamond™ alterative stones.

 
  Trinity Knot Ring with a Kite Set Ruby  

Trinity Knot Ring with a Kite Set Ruby

Sometimes called the Irish Love knot, the trinity design can represent eternal love. We love that this ring used a ruby instead of the expected emerald, which makes the design feel more meaningful and unique.



  Ruby & Yellow Gold Snake Earrings  

Snake Earrings & Pendant Set

This set demands some attention. The metalwork to create the twisting serpents is extraordinary, and the rich color of the rubies is enhanced by the warm tone of the yellow gold. Striking.



  Marquise Ruby Three Stone Ring  

Marquise Ruby Three Stone Ring

The simplicity of this design is ideal to show off the Marquise cut ruby and triangle Nexus Diamond accents. The modern and vintage elements together create an effortlessly cool piece that can easily be worn as an engagement ring or a statement right hand piece.



  Two Hearts Halo Pendant  

Two Hearts Halo Pendant

With two colored stones, there’s more to love about this custom pendant. The two hearts are so meaningful—representing two lives joined together—and the cool blue with the ruby creates a gorgeous contrast.






We love how versatile the ruby is for jewelry design. And because our rubies are grown in a lab, you know they’ll all be uniform in their rich, deep color that looks so luxurious.
