In fact, both men and women used to wear such gemstones in ancient times in hopes that it would bring them prosperity.
In fact, ancient Egyptians and Romans firmly believed that most of the naturally occurring gemstones had some sort of mystical properties. They even claimed that some gemstones were capable of bringing success to the wearer, while others made him/her immune to heart, lung, and stomach diseases. Some of the popular gemstones that are believed to attract good luck and success are ruby, citrine, and coral.
Even today, couples invest in a diamond ring with ruby side stones hoping that the gemstones will help them to be successful and happy. On the other hand, citrine, which is popularly known as the money stone, is often worn by new business owners because these stones are believed to be capable of promoting the confidence and prosperity of the wearer. Coral is not exempted either – several gemstone collectors claim that coral gemstones help wearers to acquire wealth and higher social status.
