I think each has their place.  This is how I see it:

If you're going "all in" (your graph db is your primary db) then use
the Andreas Neo4j.rb gem.
If you're not, (your graph db is used as a secondary db or as an index
for graph specific tasks) then it may be easier to use my Neography
gem.

I believe the above decision is complicated and depends very much on
how much your model benefits from a graph vs a relational or other
database type.
