Ruby is one of the “big four” group of precious gemstones together with Diamond, Sapphire, and Emerald. For the hardness, it is second only to the Diamond. It is a rare gemstone that comes in red color but can be found in nature with subtle hues of pink, orange, violet, and wine color.
Ruby is the birthstone for July and the traditional gift for the 15th or 40th anniversary. As a symbol of enduring love, rubies are believed to enhance one’s powers of seduction and virility, and ensure everlasting passion. Cherished the world-over, and the ultimate symbol of love, the ruby is a truly magical jewel!
