33 Beautiful Ruby Engagement Rings We Love

Add a splash of colour to your proposal with a ruby engagement ring - here's 33 of the best sparkling styles to buy now

Ruby and diamond engagement ring

Rich and decadent, the ruby is often referred to as 'the King of precious stones', so it seems only right that they take pride of place at your proposal in the form of a ruby engagement ring

Coming up trumps as the most durable gemstone (measuring nine out of 10 on the scale of mineral hardness), they also make the perfect choice for an engagement ring as they'll withstand everyday wear, giving you the opportunity to pass this special piece of jewellery down through generations. 

Typically red in colour, rubies come in a wide range of differing shades, from striking scarlet and bright berry to soft pink and light coral, meaning they have lots of scope to suit all styles. 

If you have your heart set on a ruby engagement ring or perhaps have a soft spot for coloured stones but aren't quite sure which jewel to settle on, we're predicting our round-up of the best ruby engagement rings might just have you sold.
