How would you like to describe summer? Hot, humid, blazing, magical, dreamy… If you think twice, these words fit perfectly in describing ruby as well!  With its ravishing red color, ruby screams for hot summer nights. Let’s take a closer look at this splendid stone with a spoiler of some red ruby bracelets and birthstone earrings!

Origin and Background of Ruby

As one of the main precious stones alongside diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds, the ruby is actually a member of the sapphire family. Ruby has been famous for a long time as we can see many ancient kings adopted ruby as one of the main stones for their crowns and it is mentioned multiple times in the bible as well. Not surprisingly, the royal families in England and Denmark are still wearing rubies.

The Variety of Color of Ruby

Ruby has the highest price per carat of all colored gemstones. The purest mineral corundum is colorless. Trace elements that make up the crystal structure of minerals can cause color changes. Chromium is the trace element that gives rubies their red color. That’s why you can see a wide range of different ‘red’ colors for rubies.

Ruby’s value and price are determined by four main factors, 4Cs: Color, Clarity, Cut, and Carat. The finest ruby has a pure, vibrant red, which is generally called the ‘pigeon blood’. In most markets, pure red colors command the highest prices, whereas the ones with orangish or purplish colors have lesser value.

Meaning of Ruby

The origin of ruby’s name was from the Latin word “ruber” which means red. Throughout history, rubies meant many different things, from the “king of precious stones” in Sanskrit to the “glowing stone” in Asian histories and myths.

Ruby embraces rich symbolism, love, romance, passion, and wealth. It is also associated with life and vitality due to its vivid color.

Ancient Hindus believed those who offered rubies to the god Krishna would be emperors in future life. People in India and Burma also believed that rubies provided safety and peace, and medieval Europeans thought these gems guaranteed health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love.
