Rubies are considered one of the most precious gemstones, prized for their vibrant color and remarkable durability. Legends tell of rubies bestowing good fortune upon their wearers and protecting them from misfortune. Whether set in a ring, pendant or bracelet, a ruby adds a touch of regal elegance to any jewelry ensemble.
