Red Hot & Aristocratic…The Ruby

July's stone of the month is as hot as the 4th of July! Red, the color of love and passion, is also the color of the red-hot Ruby. Derived from the Latin word "rubens", meaning red, the red of the ruby is incomparable, warm and fiery.

Early cultures treasured rubies for their similarity to the redness of the blood that flowed through their veins, and believed that rubies held the power of life. Early records about the transport and trading of rubies can be found in the literature on the North Silk Road of China. About 200 BC rubies were carried along this ancient way moving westward from China. Rubies have always been held in high esteem in Asian countries. Rubies were laid beneath the foundation of buildings to secure good fortune.

In the first century AD, the Roman scholar Pliny included rubies in his Natural History, describing their hardness and density. Ancient Hindus believed that those who offered fine rubies to the god Krishna were granted rebirth as emperors. For thousands of years, the ruby has been considered one of the most valuable gemstones on earth.

Ruby retained its importance with the birth of the western world and became one of the most sought-after gems of European royalty and the upper classes. Many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love.

Today the the red-hot ruby graces those born in July, those celebrating their 40th wedding anniversaries, and redheads. The ruby is a perfect way to express the powerful feelings of passion and unbridled love.
