For many thousands of years, rubies have been celebrated as symbols of romance and passion. Graff’s gemologists, designers and master craftsmen work diligently with only the finest rubies in order to create pieces that will be worn by generations to come. Our worldwide stores house many extraordinary ruby creations, which we invite you to discover.
Rubies have sparked both love affairs and battles, thanks to the mythology and mysticism that are synonymous with such intensely hued stones. Often associated with passion and seductive temptation, rubies are also linked to the sun’s fire.
A Quest for Perfection
Unearthing rubies of the same hue and clarity demands an enormous amount of patience over many months, or even years. Each ruby we employ is hand selected by the Graff family, and must pass a rigorous selection process before it is set.
An Artist’s Vision
Gouache painting is one of the most crucial stages in the evolution of any Graff jewel. Using coloured paints, the illustration is executed in life-size scale, to give an artist’s impression of how it will look once it is brought to life.
Brought to Life
Once the overall design has been finalised, our master craftsmen can begin casting their spell, creating flawlessly intuitive pieces of jewellery that move with the body.
“The way a ruby connects with you when you hold it in your hand is deeply personal.”
