What Our Customers Say

Everything about the experience was ideal. Anna was super patient, artistic and helpful and the team made sure we could create a beautiful ring that matched my wife's vintage engagement ring - and came in under budget! She couldn't be happier and I can't recommend Anna and the team at Larsen's highly enough.

Natalie provided excellent counsel and service. I was a walk-in with no prior knowledge about what I wanted and she guided me through the entire process. I was recommended Larsen's from a close friend and I am so glad I went there. I would happily recommend them to anyone.

A special mention for Jacinta and my sincere thanks to the entire team at Larsen Jewellery, Bravo! Not only did you produce a masterful custom creation, but you listened, advised and guided us caringly through the whole process. Honestly, I'm struggling to find a fault with your business model. We'll be back soon for our Wedding bands. Thanks kindly, Ash + Kaz.

I couldn't such much more about Larsen's and Jarrad than perfect.Like many probably clueless guys trying to choose a surprise engagement ring I went shopping to many many locations around Melbourne for weeks /months . Eventually I stumbled upon the Larsen shop almost accidentally and was immediately welcomed by Jarred who made me feel at ease with the whole process.He helped my choose the perfect ring for my (now wife) and it turned out amazingly. She loved it.So much so that 2 years down the track we just had to come back to Larsen's to get our wedding rings made. By this time we had some challenges around lockdowns and travel due to covid restrictions so most of the work was done online via video calls and a lot of back and forth with the team made so easy and simple.A major draw card for me too was how environmental aware and fair-trade the shop is.Environmental, fair trade, good service, amazing product.

Frequently Asked Questions

Still have questions? We’re happy to answer them! 

Is a ruby a sapphire?

Sapphires and rubies are the names given to the coloured gemstone varieties of corundum. Ruby is the name given to red coloured corundum and sapphire is the name for all other colours. A ruby engagement ring is a romantic and timeless choice.

Can you wear a ruby engagement ring every day?

Rubies are rated 9 on the MOHs scale of hardness which means they are quite resistant to being scratched. This makes them an ideal choice for a coloured gemstone engagement ring that can be worn every day.

Are rubies rarer than diamonds?

Yes, rubies are rarer than diamonds, particularly as size and quality increases. They can also command a higher price per carat. The most important factor that affects a ruby’s value is its colour. The most desirable rubies have a vibrant red colour that’s not too orange and not too pink. Inclusions that reduce transparency or brightness may negatively impact the value of a ruby engagement ring.

What are the most common shaped cuts for ruby engagement rings?

While you can find rubies in a wide variety of shapes, the most common cut for a ruby is the oval. This is because the shape fits well into the natural crystal with little wasted material. It is also one of the best shapes for drawing out the deep colour of the gemstone.
