Value, Beauty And Strength

Recognized for its intense beauty, the Ruby is one of the most valuable of gemstones.The rare 5.99-carat Burmese ruby know as the"Jubilee Ruby" set a record at Christie's in 2016 as the highest price paid ever for a colored gemstone at $14.2 million. 

The Ruby has long been associated with vitality, power. passion, health, and love - making it the perfect gemstone to commemorate both a 15th and 40th wedding anniversary. Known as the "stone of kings" and prized by royalty throughout history for their lush rich color, rubies have been mined in countries from Asia and the Middle East like India, Sri Lanka. and Afghanistan. Myanmar is recognized as being home to the finest rubies of all.

Strength In Beauty

Historically, the radiant Ruby was thought to protect a warrior from danger if worn on their armor. In more recent times, Dorothy longed for nothing more than to leave the land of Oz and return to the protection of home by using the magic click of her Ruby slippers. There may be something to its protective reputation as only Diamond and Corundum are harder than the Ruby, perhaps why it is often associated with strength. 

​So as we enjoy the hot summer days of July, plan a visit to Urban Wick Candle Bar to celebrate your birthday or special event with us. Our birthstones candle vessels are the perfect choice for your next candle pour!
