Ruby Ruby is called “the king of gems” in Sanskrit. Rubies have obtained the highest per-carat price of any colored stone. Ruby is a variety of corundum, a mineral species that also includes sapphire. Rubies range from orangey red to pure red to purplish red. Trace elements of chromium cause ruby’s red color. Ruby is the July birthstone and the stone for the 15th and 40th anniversaries.

Emerald The name emerald comes from the ancient Greek word for green and is the green to greenish blue variety of beryl. If a stone is “too light” to be an emerald, it is called a green beryl, although there is no agreement as to exactly where this distinction applies. Emeralds have been mined since 330BC and were used in Cleopatra’s jewelry, as well as by royalty throughout the world. Emerald is the birthstone of April and the stone of the 20th and 35th wedding anniversaries.

Cabochon A cabochon is a gem which has been shaped and polished but not faceted, typically with a domed top and flat bottom. Cabochons are often cut for opaque stones, for softer translucent gems as well as to highlight phenomenon such as asterism “star” and chatoyancy “cat’s eye”, as these would not show in faceted stones. The 'sugarloaf' cabochon cut features a 4-sided pyramid shape.

Enamel Enamel is a coating applied to metals using high temperatures to produce glassy vivid colors. This technique has been used throughout time, by the ancient Persians, ancient Egyptians, in China, Rome, Greek, Celtic territories, and the Byzantine Empire. Key styles include the cloisonné technique, known as the "cell technique," where are placed in a desired pattern and the spaces are then filled with enamel, as well as Champlevé, where patterns are inset on a thicker plate. Guilloché , associated with both Fabergé and Cartier, is symmetrical engraving produced by the Rose-Engine machine, invented in the early 1800s.

David Webb David Webb founded his eponymous company in 1948 in New York, becoming known for whimsical animal motifs including zebra, snakes, tigers and panthers among others. Before his passing in 1975, Webb was firmly established as a Hollywood favorite, with famous clients including Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.
