The “King of Gems” Ruby is one of the world’s oldest and most revered gemstones.
Considered one of the four precious stones, Rubies have symbolized passion and romance for centuries. Ancient cultures around the world believed that it’s intense color came from an undying flame inside the stone.
Ruby is July’s Birthstone and also the Anniversary gemstone for the 15th and 40th year of marriage.
The featured pieces are original one-of-a-kind, handmade designs that Flint Carpenter and Jose Salgado have created in our Kailua-Kona store front. These pieces are being offered to our Preferred Client Club at a value price for the month of July.
The Lore of Ruby
In India, some ancient cultures believed that rubies grew on trees, just like fruit & those who offered such precious fruits (gemstones) to the god Krishna were granted rebirth as emperors.
In the west - Roman warriors were said to have implanted rubies under their skin to bring them valor in battle and make them invincible.
