Since the beginning of recorded history, people have been using elements from nature to represent deep emotions. Nature was believed to embody special powers, to endow people with mystical qualities and to provide help and assistance. In ancient cultures, precious gemstones were desired by rulers and kings who believed that they were good luck and brought good fortune. It is no wonder that birthstones emerged to represent the qualities of each month on the calendar. It was believed that if you wore a birthstone during the correct month, that their spiritual powers were heightened and enhanced; prompting the rich and powerful to wear the correct gem each month, whether it was their birthday or not.
The opulent ruby is one of the most valuable gemstones in the world. It is rare to find a ruby that exhibits the deep rich purplish-red color it is famous for – in fact, most commercially sold rubies have been color-enhanced, making true rubies all the more precious. Legend dictates that a ruby will open the door to great wealth and prosperity, and bring good fortune. It is also said to ward off evil spirits and keep enemies at bay; even to chase away bad dreams. The ruby brings peace to those who own and wear it.
