About Ruby rings
Ruby... when you say the word you can visualize the colorful emotional images which this gemstone invokes: fiery hearts, passion, romance, blood, and power. It's no wonder that people from all walks of life -- from kings to paupers -- have coveted antique ruby rings.
Ruby's coveted red color ranges from medium red to dark orangey red to purplish red. The reddest rubies most likely convinced ancient peoples of ruby's medicinal powers. Thirteenth century medical literature from India tells us that a ruby could cure digestive disorders. Warriors in Burma put rubies under their skin to protect them in battle. Other ancient cultures felt that rubies brought peace and prosperity. If you wore an antique ruby ring it would bring health, wealth, wisdom, and love. Some even believed that if you wore an antique ruby ring or ruby brooch on the left side that you would have a magical ability to live among your enemies in peace.
