Ruby rings are the epitome of romance. Lavish and magnificent to behold, they have been highly regarded as a status symbol throughout history. The fiery red tones of Ruby are instantly recognisable and make a striking impression.
Revered by many cultures as symbols of good fortune, Ruby rings appear in many shades of red, from dark blackish red to pale, almost translucent pink. The most desirable Rubies, and therefore most valuable, are those of a vibrant, deep red. It is their smouldering colour together with their captivating beauty that makes Ruby rings a hugely popular choice for those looking for engagement rings. Especially when complemented with sparkling Diamonds.
In ancient times, the Ruby was known as "the king of gems." Some believed it was a representation of the sun, for others it represented devotion, integrity, courage, romance, happiness, generosity, and prosperity. According to legend, warriors implanted Rubies under their skin to bring valour in battle. As a stone, Ruby would warn its owner against danger and disaster. Ground to a fine powder and placed on the tongue, it was believed by some ancient cultures to cure blood diseases, stop bleeding, ensure good health, bring peace, and treat indigestion. Love and passion are synonymous with this precious stone. Though it holds many other positive qualities. With its likeness in colour to blood, it has been said to improve the circulatory system and prevent inflammatory diseases. As well as taking care of matter of the heart, such as the prevention of sadness and loneliness.
Today, as well as in the form of Ruby rings, Rubies have numerous applications: as styluses in turntables, as tiny bearings in expensive wristwatches, and in rod form, they form a crucial component to a laser's core. As the birthstone of July, Ruby rings make the perfect gift for those lucky enough to be born in this month. Whether it’s a timeless Ruby solitaire ring, or a more ornate cluster ring style, the Ruby is a classic stone that is universally adored due to its esteemed history and its use in many iconic pieces of jewellery.
