Gems of Love

 

Throughout time and cultures,  these gems have been known to enhance, inspire, and cultivate love.

 

The Ruby

The Ruby has been used as a stone of noblemen, especially in the Asian countries of India and China, and has been called “Lord of the Gemstones”.  It is sometimes used in addition to the diamond on engagement rings because of it’s strong symbolism of love, respect, and dignity.

 

The Garnet

This gem can be traced back to 3100 BC- as it was used in Egyptian jewelry.  The Garnet is a stone of romantic love, passion, sensuality, sexuality, and intimacy.  According to Ayurveda, Garnet should be set in gold for individuals with nervous or sluggish dispositions, while active people should wear Garnet set in silver.
