This excerpt was printed in a Tiffany & Co. pamphlet in the 1870s. Symbolically, rubies are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. Ruby is the birthstone for July, as well as the gemstone used to celebrate couples’ 15th and 40th anniversaries.
Ancient cultures believed rubies held the power of life thanks to their blood-red color. They are mentioned in the Bible. The people of India believed that rubies helped their owners to live in peace with their enemies. For centuries ruby jewelry has adorned European royalty and those in the upper class. Today people attribute it with passion, love, desire, and power.
The ruby is known as the king of gems, the most precious of the 12 gems created by God. It’s the most valuable member of the corundum family above sapphire. Ruby jewelry is perfect for everyday wear thanks to its durability. And of course, the ruby is attractive because of its color, ranging from orange to purple-red (the most valuable coming in deep red).
If you’re looking for ruby jewelry to celebrate a birthday, an anniversary, or another special occasion, you’re sure to find designs to suit every taste, from ruby and diamond pendants to halo-style earrings, contemporary design necklaces, and even estate and vintage ruby treasures. Ruby is also a great alternative to a center diamond for an engagement ring if you’re looking to symbolize eternal love or add some unique flair.
Take a look at these ruby rings, necklaces, bracelets, and earrings (all containing natural rubies, not synthetic). Or if you have something particular in mind, stop in to see more ruby jewelry.
