Nearly as hard as diamonds, rubies can have various shades and tones of red. These fabulous colored gems were admired by the ancients thousands of years ago! See why we encourage you to consider rubies in your unique engagement ring.
Symbolism of Rubies
Rubies symbolized wealth and social status in many ancient cultures, including India, Thailand, and Myanmar. In fact, many kings wore rubies in their crowns and jewelry as a symbol of their power.
The rich red of rubies symbolizes love, passion, heat, fire, and an inner light. Many ancient cultures believed rubies emitted their own light because of their ability to reflect light back towards the person looking into the gem.
