About the crystal:
Lab-created rubies are made using the same materials that can be found in a natural ruby ring. They are identical in their chemical composition, but lab-created rubies are less expensive than natural ones and unlike natural rubies, they are not flawed.
For centuries, rubies have signified passion, protection, and wealth. Ancient warriors in Burma and China adorned their armour with the gem to provide protection in battle. Some went as far as inserting the gems into their flesh, believing it created invincibility. The ruby has become a symbol of love and commitment.
It has been associated with improved energy and concentration, creativity, loyalty, honor and compassion. Ruby is thought to be protective of home, possessions and family. Ruby is said to stimulate the heart chakra and bring spiritual wisdom while shielding against psychic attacks
I'm a designer passionate about nature and people. In every single thing I design, there is a lot of me and a lot of others. Part of the work is made in my studio in South East London, and part of the work is made by other artisans in South America, my second home. We make sure all the process is ethical and each crystal has been sustainably resourced
