Is red the right colour?

Dear Arabel,
My girlfriend's favourite colour is red and I'm looking at your ruby engagement rings.  Will the ruby be red enough? 
Josh H, Islington

Dear Josh,

Lovely that she likes red as a colour.  Red has lots of associations with love and romance and is a very stand out colour for an engagement ring and as a conversation piece.  As my first choice, I would recommend you to go with a ruby but sometimes rubies can be a little pinkish. An alternative would be to go for a beautiful red garnet which tend to be more of a deep red. Obviously, garnets don't sound as sexy as rubies, so I leave that to your own judgement. In each case if you combine it with a yellow gold ring, it will accentuate the red tones.
