Ruby necklaces are a perfect way to say "I love you." Deep and vibrant red rubies immediately invoke love and romance, and look particularly dramatic and beautiful against black formalwear. These precious and high-quality stones are often given particularly romantic and beautiful settings in ruby necklaces.

A particularly popular form of ruby necklaces is a heart pendant. Rubies themselves can be cut in a heart shape, but more commonly a number of smaller rubies will be set side-by-side in a gold or white gold heart shaped setting. Sometimes rubies and diamonds will be used together in this most romantic of gifts.

Star Ruby Necklaces

One thing you might want to look for if you want to give a particularly beautiful and exotic gift is a star ruby. These rare stones display a luminous star in certain lights. This is formed by the intersection of needles (or inclusions made when the stone formed) within the ruby which are seen as a star when the gem is cut in a dome. A star ruby necklace would certainly be a favorite item of any woman who was lucky enough to have one.

Of course there are other shapes of rubies that can be set in a necklace or hung as a pendant. Tear shaped rubies are very popular, and are emerald cut. The internet can be a great resource for finding images of these designs, and with just a little effort, you will be sure to find exactly what you were hoping for.
