Ruby rings

Ruby is synonymous with red. Etymologically the word comes from the Latin word “ruber” which means red. Its blood red color brings to mind amorous passion, desire and sensuality, which make a ruby ring quite feminine. However, men can also wear rubies, set in a signet ring for example, because rubies are also a symbol of power, courage and strength. It is no surprise that kings and queens in previous centuries made rubies the emblem of their power. If you are a woman of power, do not hesitate to wear a women’s ruby ring.
