18K Gold, Diamond and Ruby Crossover Toi et Moi Ring

Perhaps rubies’ long lasting appeal lies in the blood-red depth that hits a nerve in the human mind as a physical reminder of our own human life-blood. For this reason, the ruby has featured prominently in the decoration of Christian objects of devotion, particularly those used for the Eucharist. Their connection to Christ has also lead rubies to have been historically associated with royal power. They frequently have been used as the centre piece for crowns. Ruby’s visual connection to blood have also lead to them being associated with the heart and used as symbols of lust and love. Rubies have long been included in love tokens.
