Birth Stone - July

Birth Stone - July

The month of July is often associated with the magnificent stone that is Ruby. When thinking of Rubies, we tend to think of the bright red stone, or of course the magical ruby slippers from the Wizard of Oz. However, the stone varies in hue, from a purple to orange. The stone has been considered to be the ‘King of all gems’ and has a rich history.

It was originally believed that a red Ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. This is why Emperors and Kings throughout the ages, and still to this day the ruby is still held in high regard. The stone represents love, passion, courage, and emotion.

Due to its deep red color, the Ruby has also long been associated with the life force and vitality of blood. It is believed to amplify energy, heighten awareness, promote courage, and bring success in wealth, love, and battle. They have also often been considered to be the perfect wedding gift.

Ruby’s strength and red fluorescence make it valuable for applications beyond jewellery. Both natural and synthetic rubies are used in watchmaking, medical instruments, and lasers.

The stone is also incredibly tough and durable, it measures 9 on the Mohs scale – being beaten only by the diamond. Which makes it perfect for jewellery, especially in rings as it can withstand any knocks.
