Known as the ‘queen of stones’, Rubies were once more valuable than Diamonds. The hardest gemstones after the Diamond, they were believed to protect warriors who included them as part of their armor. Prized for their beautiful red hue, they are named from the Latin ‘rubeus’, which means red. A symbol of love, the Ruby is the birthstone for July and used to celebrate a 40th wedding anniversary.
My birthstone branch necklace is part of my woodland collection inspired by my daily walks with Rolo. The graceful pendant is set with a ruby and hangs from a delicate trace chain.
