Rough Ruby Market Growth

Rough rubies are the uncut and unfaceted form of the ruby gemstone, as they are naturally mined from the earth's crust. Ruby, a variation of aluminium oxide, is a highly sought-after coloured gemstone known for its vibrant shades of red. These raw ruby stones are created under intense pressure and heat deep within the earth, where atoms of aluminium and oxygen combine in the presence of chromium to form these precious rubies.

 

The growth of the rough ruby market can be primarily attributed to the increasing demand for ruby jewellery and ornaments. The allure of ruby in the jewellery industry, coupled with its aesthetic appeal and symbolic significance, is driving consumers towards rough rubies.

 

Key Trends and Developments

Increasing demand for luxury ruby ornaments, technological advancements in ruby grading and certification, and diversification of ruby applications are propelling the rough ruby market growth

 

June 2023

The largest ruby ever auctioned, a 55.22-carat gem named "Estrela de Fura," sold for a record USD 34.8 million at Sotheby's in New York due to its exceptional colour and clarity. Fura Gems, the company behind the discovery, allocated 2% of the proceeds to establish a technical training academy.

 

September 2022

Fura Gems revealed the "Estrela de Fura," a rare 101-carat gem-quality ruby. The rough ruby, discovered in Mozambique, yielded a faceted stone over 50 carats, ultimately worth USD 50 million. It was showcased in Dubai and surpassed the auction records set by the 25.59-carat "Sunrise Ruby."

 

April 2022

A record-breaking 8,400-carat rough ruby, named Burj Alhamal, was unveiled in Dubai by British actor Tamer Hassan. Mined in Winza, Tanzania, this gem with a purplish-red hue was valued at USD 120 million. Dubai's gemstone market was further solidified by the arrival of this unique gem.

 

Emphasis on sustainable and ethical sourcing

Another key trend influencing rough ruby market development is the increasing emphasis on sustainable and ethical sourcing practices. As a result, market players are under pressure to ensure that their rough ruby supply chains adhere to responsible mining practices, fair labour conditions, and transparency in the sourcing process.

 

Increasing demand for luxury ruby jewellery

As consumers' disposable incomes rise, particularly in emerging economies, they are more inclined to invest in high-end jewellery pieces. Ruby, known for its rarity, beauty, and symbolic significance, is becoming increasingly popular among affluent consumers seeking to showcase their wealth and style.

 

Technological advancements in ruby grading and certification

The rough ruby market is also witnessing the impact of technological advancements in ruby grading and certification. Advanced gemological techniques, such as laser inscription and spectroscopic analysis, are enabling more accurate and reliable grading of rough rubies.

 

Diversification of ruby applications

There is a trend towards the diversification of ruby applications beyond traditional jewellery as rubies are increasingly being used in watches, pens, and accessories. This trend is opening new revenue streams for market players and expanding the overall market potential.

 

Rough Ruby Market Trends

The growing trend of crystal collection is extending to rough rubies as well, with consumers investing in them as collectors' items. Believers of healing crystals also purchase rough rubies with the aim of improving their overall health and promoting positivity. In addition, the rapid rise in consumer belief in astrology along with increased use of rough rubies in astrology and fashion jewellery, are anticipated to fuel the rough ruby market expansion over the course of the forecast period.

 

Moreover, blockchain technology is being used to create transparent and tamper-proof supply chain records, further enhancing consumer confidence in the authenticity of ruby jewellery. Additionally, the unique properties of rubies, such as their hardness and thermal conductivity, are making them attractive for use in industrial applications like electronics and aerospace, which is aiding in market growth.

Rough Ruby Market Share

Rubies up to 8 carats are more commonly used by jewellers as they comparatively cost less

Rubies up to 8 carats constitute the largest share of the market due to their abundance and widespread availability. These smaller rubies are commonly used in distinct type of jewellery, such as rings, earrings, and pendants. Rubies over one carat are considered rare, while those over two carats are even rarer and more valuable than sapphires of the same size. The rarity and cost increase exponentially for rubies larger than 3 carats as they are difficult to find. As a result, jewellery pieces often incorporate multiple smaller rubies rather than a single large one, due to the excessive cost of larger rubies.

 

In contrast, rubies in the 8-12 carat range are less common and highly sought after for their rarity and potential to yield larger polished stones. As per rough ruby market analysis, these rubies are often used in high-end jewellery pieces and command higher prices due to their scarcity. Meanwhile, the rarest and most valuable segment of the market comprises rubies in the 13-15 carat range. These larger rubies are highly coveted for their potential to yield exceptionally large and high-quality polished stones, making them desirable for collectors, connoisseurs, and luxury jewellery brands.

 

Direct auction channels hold a significant market share as they provide transparency and direct engagement with buyers

Direct auction sales channels are a significant component within the rough ruby market report as they provide a platform for direct transactions between sellers and buyers. These auctions offer transparency, enabling competitive bidding for rough rubies. Companies utilising direct auction sales channels benefit from reaching a diverse range of potential buyers, including collectors, jewellery manufacturers, and investors.

 

On the other hand, indirect sales channels play a vital role in distributing rough rubies globally through intermediaries like wholesalers, retailers, and online platforms. These channels offer convenience and accessibility to a broader consumer base, catering to individuals seeking rough rubies for personal use or investment purposes.
