With gemstone jewelry — such as ruby engagement rings or an aquamarine engagement ring — you should generally avoid sudden temperature changes. If you have a very active lifestyle, you may want to refrain from wearing your gemstone rings and bracelets throughout the day. Some gemstones are very brittle, especially emeralds, whereas rubies have a hardness second to that of the diamond (which is 4-5 times harder).
You love your ruby jewelry, pearl jewelry, emerald jewelry, and other gemstone pieces, but be sure to take care of it well if you want it to last for a long time.
