Rubies, known for their rich red color derived from chromium, are a part of the corundum family of minerals, which also includes sapphires. These vibrant gemstones are primarily sourced from Myanmar (Burma), Thailand, Sri Lanka, and Madagascar, with historical extractions in India and Vietnam as well. Showcasing their stunning beauty, rubies enhance various types of jewelry, including rings, necklaces, earrings, and bracelets. Renowned for symbolizing love, passion, and power, ruby jewelry is traditionally gifted for the 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries and is also celebrated as the birthstone for July. In terms of their appearance, rubies can be fashioned into a variety of cuts such as round, oval, cushion, and emerald, with the specific cut chosen based on the original shape and size of the gem to best enhance its natural beauty.
