King of gems
Over centuries, the pure red color of fine rubies has inspired much folklore. In the ancient world, the ruby was associated with riches and royalty. In Hindu astrology, the ruby was considered so valuable it was deemed the “sun” jewel around which all other precious gems circled. The Sanskrit word for ruby, “ratnaraj,” roughly translates to “king of the gems”.
In medieval times, some European noblemen and women believed if a ruby was worn on the left side of the body (by the heart) it would help bring peace into the owner’s life.
