July Birthstone - Ruby

The stunning ruby is the birthstone for July, as well as the gemstone that celebrates the 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries. Rubies are one of the most prized gemstones for their deep red color and clarity. It is said that a ruby brings love, health, and wisdom tot he wearer! 

Ruby is one of the most popular color gemstones available today. The gemstone is incredibly hard, making it resistant to scratching and a great choice for jewelry that will be worn often. The deep, crimson color is highly sought-after.  In fact, large rubies can draw higher prices than equal sized diamonds! 

The most prized rubies feature a pure hue ranging from a vibrant red to a slightly purplish-red. If the hue strays too far from the primary red color of a ruby, either becoming too orange-red or purplish, the quality of the ruby is lower.  Of course, when selecting a ruby, the most important thing is to choose a color you love and are excited to wear!
