The passion for rubies dates back centuries where those in Sri Lanka prized its discovery as one of the most precious gemstones in the world. This passionate gemstone can also be found in Myanmar (previously Burma). Perhaps the idea of passion originated from the Hindus and how they believed that the deep, rich red color of the ruby gemstone came from a fire burning inside the gemstone that could never be extinguished.
Even now, a ruby gemstone is known for its fiery red color, which many commonly associate with love, passion, and intrigue. Its exotic look and reputation draw those passionate about life and, of course, jewelry, making it one of the most popular gemstones after diamonds. There's no better way to express your own passion for life and love than by wearing a custom ruby necklace or giving a pair of ruby stud earrings to a loved one who shares the same passion.
