The birthstone for July is the Ruby, which is known
as “the king of gems” and is considered to embody the values of courage,
devotion, romance, integrity and happiness.
Ruby is the red variety of corundum and is one of the hardest gemstones, second only to the diamond, making this gemstone very hard wearing and perfect for jewellery worn everyday. Deemed as the most precious gemstone in ancient Sanskrit writing, the ruby has long been a favourite gem among those in power. With romantic associations, this gem is a popular choice for engagement rings as well as the traditional anniversary gift for a couple’s 15th and 40th year together.
Red is a power colour that ignites passion and
confidence so July is the month to stand out. Swap your little black dress for a
little red one, perfect your pout with bright red lippy and wear your best
Dorothy slippers! Accessorise any summer’s outfit with red jewellery or a
statement red watch! For the perfect birthday gift, take a look at our fabulous
