Yesterday morning, I published an article about the apparent sale of the Gold.com domain name. The domain name appears to have been sold by a subsidiary of a major jewelry retail chain for an undisclosed amount of money. In response to my tweet about that sale, Josh Schoen mentioned that the Ruby.com domain name had also been sold, and that appears to be the case.
Earlier this year, Ruby.com was registered to the same entity as Gold.com. The domain name was registered publicly at CSC, and Archive.org shows Ruby.com was also used as a forwarder to the Kay Jewelers website. According to current Whois records, Ruby.com is now registered to a company called Ruby Receptionists. Using the Whois History tool at DomainTools, it looks like the domain name changed hands in late September of 2019 for an undisclosed amount.
