There’s no better way to demonstrate your love than by giving a ruby in celebration of a July birthday.
Rubies arouse the senses, stir the imagination, and are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love.
The ruby is harder than any natural gemstone except diamond, which means a ruby is durable enough for everyday wear. Fine-quality ruby is extremely rare, and the color of the gem is most important to its value. The most prized color is a medium or medium dark vivid red or slightly purplish red.
Did you know? If the gem is too light or has too much purple or orange, it will be called a fancy-color sapphire.
