July's Birthstone | Ruby
July has arrived, and so has the time to swoon over this month’s birthstone – the gorgeous ruby.
Symbolic of the passion and energy associated with the colour red, rubies are truly breathtaking and have been treasured throughout history for their vitality.
Considered the “king of the gemstones”, rubies are rare, unique and valuable - and one of the most sought-after gemstones after diamonds. Unusually for a precious gemstone, the natural imperfections can actually increase the value and are used to confirm a ruby's authenticity.
Did you know? The Sunrise Ruby is the world’s most expensive gemstone other than a diamond, selling for nearly $30 million.
A ruby will make a wow-worthy addition to any jewellery box, perfect for showing your love for someone born in July or celebrating a special wedding anniversary; the ruby marks 40 years of marriage.
We love the elegant shape of these 9ct White Gold Diamond and Ruby Drop Earrings and this 9ct White Gold Diamond and Ruby Pendant. Paired with lustrous 9ct white gold and dazzling diamonds, the suspended ruby effortlessly takes centre stage with its rich colour.
For those looking for something a little different, ruby engagement rings and ruby eternity rings are a striking and beautiful choice.
Romantic and passionate, this 18ct Yellow Gold Ruby and Diamond Cluster Ring is sparkling with vintage glamour thanks to the 18ct gold and the star-shaped halo of diamonds.
This 18ct White Gold Ruby and Diamond Ring will steal anyone’s heart with its simply stunning design. We adore the double row of diamonds falling down the shoulders, and how striking the deep red of the ruby looks next to the sparkling white of the diamonds.
