What we need to know about wearing is:
The ruby corundum species are very tough gems. It is easy to pass the test of daily wear. But it should also be noted that rubies, like any gemstone, may chip or break due to blunt impact.

In terms of maintenance, today IGA will teach you 7 tips for maintaining rubies
