Alongside being associated with peace, happiness, and fidelity, blue sapphires have also been associated with improved communication, intuition, and inspiration.
This ruby pendant makes the perfect gift for your sweetheart or a dear friend.
The richly red ruby has long been associated with love, including both romantic love and the love between friends. When a ruby is given as a gift, it is a symbol of the friendship or love between the two parties.
In addition to being associated with love and friendship, rubies symbolize vitality and royalty, and are said to bring safety, peace, wealth, and health. Also, many very early cultures associated rubies with life, as their deep red color is similar to the color of blood. Because of this, rubies have been said to hold the power of life.
