Valentine’s Day is a day of romance, chocolate, hearts, and cupid’s arrows! It is a day to celebrate the one you love most and hold them close. Valentine’s Day rubies are a perfect way to do that!
Valentine’s Day has been around for centuries and got its name after Saint Valentine, a Catholic Priest who lived in Rome in the 3rd Century. 200 years after his passing the 14th of February was proclaimed St. Valentine’s Day and is still celebrated around the world. Over the years Valentine’s Day has emerged into a day of sending gifts, letters, and flowers to your loved ones to express affection.
There is no better way to celebrate the day than by showering your love with a symbol of devotion, such as a Ruby gemstone. Rubies are associated with love and passion. Their bright red to light pink hues are said to ignite feelings of courage, happiness, and commitment. Rubies are the traditional gemstone gift for the 15th and 40th wedding anniversary, so if you are celebrating many years together this Valentine’s Day, be sure to consider the ruby gemstone as a present and sign of continued devotion to your spouse.
ALL ABOUT RUBIES:
Other than the beauty of this gem, it also holds many characteristics of durability. This gem is only second to diamonds on the Mohs scale of hardness ranking at a 9. Some also believe that they also possess the ability to energize and balance, stimulate the heart chakra and encourage a passion for life.
Rubies are relatively easy to care for. Warm soapy water will do the trick and is always a safe option. Allow the ring to sit in the water for 15 to 20 minutes before removing and carefully rubbing clean with a soft cloth or toothbrush.
