Gem Stories: Ruby

Passion, energy, and excitement are some of feelings we associate with the color red. It comes as no surprise that rubies enhance these qualities in our lives. One of the chosen birthstones for July, rubies stimulate a passion for living, while aiding the heart and circulatory system. It's the personal trainer of the gemstone world, pushing you into action and invigorating your life.

Who can forget the one of the most important symbols in the movie the Wizard of Oz -- Dorothy's ruby slippers? Apparently, originally suppose to be made of silver, Dorothy's standout ruby slippers have become our modern symbol for following your heart's deepest desire.

Red rubies always bring you back to your heart center. The place where all things originate. Though authentic rubies are scarce, using the color red in jewelry is a reminder to come back to this place.
