What do you think of when you think of July? Hot sun? Fireworks? Rubies? Rubies, known as the “king of gems,” have long been said to represent the beauty of the sun–the ideal meaning for one of the hottest months of the year. Also a symbol of integrity, healing, devotion, and romance, this gem is the perfect gift to represent the strength of your love and the strength of your passion, whether set in a birthday gift, an engagement ring, or a wedding band.The word “ruby” is derived from the Latin word “ruber” which means “red.” This color evokes some of the most powerful emotions, such as love and anger, and is associated with objects of power–roses, fast cars, and national flags. This gem has been inspiring people throughout history and has been used to represent power, authority, and passion. People in India believed that by owning a ruby, a person could live in peace with their enemies, and in Burma, warriors would carry rubies because they thought the stone would make them invincible in battle. Medieval European royalty and upper class citizens sought after and wore rubies with the belief that the stone guaranteed health, wealth, and love.
Practically speaking, a ruby is a fantastic stone because of its composition. The ruby is harder than any other gem except for diamonds, which means you can wear it every day without fear of damaging or breaking it. In addition, the deep red color makes the stone appear much larger than other stones of the same size which can help it stand out, even in small pieces of jewelry such as rings or bracelets.
A ruby is an amazing choice for any kind of gift, whether birthday, engagement, or weddings, and looks lovely in any kind of setting.
