Why Choose Ruby?
Ruby is a gemstone of unmatched quality and elegance. With rich history and symbolism, July’s birthstone represents wealth, passion, and protection. The ruby’s deep red color characterizes the gemstone, and its smooth, polished surface always perfectly captures the light. As a result, rubies are the ideal candidate for not only everyday jewelry but also cherished heirloom bracelets, rings, earrings, and more. The allure of this captivating gemstone doesn’t end here.
A Rich Past:
As the birthstone of the seventh month, ruby holds both historical and cultural significance. Cultures in the past treasured the gem, believing that it wielded the power of life due to the color similarities with blood. Its deep, rich color, incredible durability, and rarity all add to the value and subsequent desirability of the ruby. This gemstone has long been a sought-after pièce de résistance in jewelry, as it can be traced to being worn by European royalty as well as the upper class. Those most fortunate in medieval times wore rubies for health, wealth, wisdom, and love.
A Timeless Stone:
Known best for their association with July, and also famously gifted for 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries, rubies are beautiful for every occasion. Whether set as the center stone in a ring or placed flawlessly in a set of earrings, rubies are guaranteed to make any piece of jewelry sparkle just a little bit more. As it only falls right behind Diamonds on the Mohs hardness scale, ruby’s sleekness, bold color, and versatility give it special status in the world of gemstones – which does not go unnoticed here! The ruby is the perfect gift not only for yourself but for those you love most.
