With July comes unforgettable summer nights, sunny afternoons, and of course, Rubies! Deriving from the Latin word “ruber,” the July birthstone has been around for centuries and it is one of the most recognizable birthstones thanks to its captivating rich hue varying from soft pink to deep red depending on its place of origin.
Often symbolizing love and romance, rubies are stunning gemstones that were once thought to hold the key to life. Today, they are considered the “king of the gemstones” for its unique color, superior light performance, and outstanding hardness – diamond is the only natural gemstone harder than ruby.
Those born in the month of July are lucky to call ruby their official birthstone.
“THE GLEAMING RUBY SHOULD ADORN, ALL THOSE WHO IN JULY ARE BORN, FOR THUS THEY’LL BE EXEMPT AND FREE, FROM LOVER’S DOUBTS AND ANXIETY.”
