Of the four most well known and coveted gems – diamonds, emeralds, rubies, and sapphires – the ruby is the undisputed king of precious stones.  Per carat rubies are rarer and more valuable than diamonds.

The breathtakingly beautiful, crimson color of rubies is its primary characteristic.  While many different colored precious stones belong to the ‘mineral corundum’ category including sapphires, only those extremely rare, exotically red gems are entitled to be called rubies.

For thousands of years in many cultures worldwide, the color ‘red’ has been associated with love, life, passion, power, energy and vitality.

The scarlet shiny stone came to stand for excitement and energy, veracious vitality and living for love.  In astrology, the ruby represents the sun – the heart and soul of our solar system and ruler of the planets
