France has always been a country known for its romantic scenery, exquisite style, and beautiful art and fashion. In Adelaide, these traits that make France such a wondrous place is no more exemplified than in The Ruby Oracle. The Ruby Oracle is a boutique store that bleeds French style and colour. The store specialises in French jewellery, handbags, gifts, and fashion accessories. However, that is only a sample of what they stock.

This goes along with the décor which is carefully picked out by Dianna to give the whole place an authentic French vintage vibe. Designed by people with a true passion and fascination with everything French, over the last 11 years Dianna has crafted a business which is a heartfelt love letter to everything that makes France beautiful and tender place it is always been known as.
The Ruby Oracle's greatest strength comes from their customer service. With so many unique and special items in-store, Dianna will take the time to take customers through and explain the stories and background behind all of their items.
