Product Description

An ambitious, lavishly illustrated survey of one of the world’s most valuable precious gems

Ruby is a fascinating exploration of this precious stone, taking the reader on a journey from the ancient mines of Burma, along the harsh terrain of the Silk Trading routes of China, to European courts and palaces, where rubies have been sourced and bought from intrepid gem- stone dealers to decorate royalty, dignitaries, and the social elite. T

his major illustrated book will showcase more than sixty of the world’s significant, notable, and famous rubies, ruby jewels, and ruby artifacts, including many previously unseen pieces from private and royal collections. Author Joanna Hardy was granted exclusive access to all the modern and iconic jewelry houses, including Cartier, Boucheron, Van Cleef & Arpels, Chaumet, Harry Winston, Graff, and many more. From emperors and empresses, kings and queens, maharanis and Hollywood royalty, tales of love, passion, and romance are here alongside historical and social context that reveal why rubies are so greatly revered. Additionally, Ruby looks at the various ruby deposits in the world and offers practical guidance on what to look for in a quality ruby.
