What do ruby gemstones symbolize?

Rubies are one of the most coveted coloured gemstones due to their rarity. The vibrant red colour has inspired countless stories and legends. In the ancient language of Sanskrit, Ruby is called “Ratnaraj” which means “King of Precious Gemstones”.

Rubies symbolize Nobility, Royalty, Love, Passion, Fire, and Power. This precious gemstone has also long been associated with the life-sustaining force of blood. In Burma, warriors and soldiers were known to wear rubies for protection and to achieve greater courage and fearlessness. It was said that Rubies make them invincible in battle.
