The color is also a symbol of power, which is why many royal figures wear not just ruby engagement rings on the left-hand ring finger but even tiaras sporting the gem on the head. Throughout history, cultures across the world had certain beliefs about this gemstone’s unique properties. The gem is said to be closely associated with the sun, thus possessing many of its energetic properties as well as bringing vitality, power, and passion for those who wear the stone as a talisman.
