While now it symbolizes love and romance, it used to be seen as a safety, a curer of diseases, and a symbol of integrity. Ancient warriors used to implant rubies under their skin as a sign of protection and invincibility.
The ideal cover of a ruby is described as “pigeon’s blood”. The rarity of this can make rubies cost more than diamonds in some cases.
