Since the earliest cultures, people have considered the natural elements to embody deep significance. Nature was thought to emanate mystical powers, and to provide both physical and spiritual protection. In ancient times, rare gemstones were coveted by rulers who believed that they brought good fortune, as well as great power and wealth. Through the centuries, birthstones emerged to represent each month on the calendar, a tradition believed to have been inspired by the 12 gemstones embedded on the breastplates of the Jewish priests in Biblical writings. It was further considered good luck to wear the appropriate birthstone each month, to ensure that the spiritual powers inherent in the gem would be transferred to the wearer.
The luxurious and passionate red ruby is considered one of the most precious gemstones in the world. The iconic deep color it is famous for is exceptionally rare in nature – in fact, most rubies that can now be purchased have been color-treated to enhance their hue. Legend tells us that a true ruby will grant great wealth, prosperity and good fortune to one who wears it. It is also said to chase away evil spirits and cause nightmares to cease, resulting in deep peace. No wonder it was so coveted in ancient tribal cultures.
