Rubies are among diamonds and sapphires as one of the most precious gems in the world. Rubies have a universal meaning of power, passion, and good fortune. As July’s birthstone, the ruby is meant to enhance the beauty and confidence of those who wear it.
Also known as the King of Gems, rubies have been used as a symbol of royalty through the ages. They have emblazoned crowns, rings, earrings, and necklaces of history’s most powerful figures. Today, the ruby is meant to place the same regal value on those lucky enough to possess one.
Believed to imbue confidence, the ruby can boost a woman’s self-image and attract admiration. For this reason, ruby gemstone earrings are designed to bring out the fire and passion in a woman’s eyes. Also often used as a symbol of the heart, a ruby necklace is a popular choice to represent romance and commitment. In addition to July’s birthstone, the Ruby Anniversary celebrates 40 years of marriage.
