Ruby gets its name from the word Ruber, which is Latin for red. With its vibrant red colour, the Ruby is known as “the king of gems” and is considered to embody the values of courage, devotion, romance, integrity and happiness. Ruby is the red variety of Corundum and is one of the hardest gemstones, second only to the Diamond, making this gemstone very hard wearing and perfect for jewellery worn everyday. Deemed as the most precious gemstone in ancient Sanskrit writing, the Ruby has long been a favourite gem among those in power. With romantic associations, this gem is a popular choice for engagement rings as well as the traditional anniversary gift for a couple’s 15th and 40th year together.
