    I would get her a ruby, simply because of the cultural confusion which could result if she wears a diamond ring (people might think she’s engaged, plus if she does get engaged in the future then why would she wear two diamond rings?).

    … also, a ruby is cheaper!

    You sound like a very nice friend. I wish someone would get me jewellery for my birthday!

    I agree with PP plus I think a ruby is more thoughtful. “everyone” has diamonds, but a ruby really gives her a chance to the proud of the significance.

    i have an exceptionally good quality Ruby ring and i think its just as beautiful as my diamond engagement ring. It has this warm sparkly glow to it so if you’re getting a good quality ruby, i vote ruby for sure.


    Also, she might just decide to wear it on special occasions so you dont have to worry about it clashing too much

    I love the idea of a ruby. Not because a diamond is a weird gift or anything, but because it is gorgeous, flashy, won’t be mistaken for anything, and still has sentimental value!
