July Birthstone Guide: The Ruby

wedding ring engagement ring diamond jewelry

To begin, the elegant Ruby is the July Birthstone. A lovely red gemstone that represents love and passion. Furthermore, it is said to bring success, wealth, and good fortune to the wearer.

What exactly is Ruby?

For starters, it is made from a variety of the mineral corundum, which has similar properties to the September birthstone sapphire.

Finally, rubies and sapphires are the same gem, with color being the deciding factor.

Corundum is a colorless mineral in its purest form. Color variations are caused by trace elements that become part of the mineral's crystal structure.

Chromium is the trace element responsible for the orangey-red to purplish red color of rubies.

The intensity of ruby's red is determined by the amount of chromium present—the more chromium, the stronger the red color. Chromium can also cause fluorescence, which intensifies the red color.

Red Pigeon's Blood

Because the colors of rubies vary, certain general expressions are used to describe the more desirable colors of this exceptional gemstone.

One such term for a particularly intense ruby red color is "Pigeon Blood."

Aside from a refined collection of ruby and diamond designs, most of our jewelry designs can be customized to include rubies.

Furthermore, as part of our bespoke service, we provide a full and detailed no-obligation quotation based on your preferred design, set with any gemstone combination.

Origin and history

To begin, the word 'Ruby' is derived from the Latin word 'Ruber,' which translates to 'Red.' It was once believed that the precious ruby gemstone had a flame burning deep within it due to its glowing red color.

Second, rubies date back to the first century AD and are mentioned four times in the Bible. Ruby is known as ratnaraj in Sanskrit, which means "king of precious stones," because some rubies are deep red and are thought to represent blood and life itself.

Medicinal Properties

"Ruby fosters passion and zest for life." It boosts motivation and allows you to set more realistic goals.

It calms the heart and boosts confidence. It is said to promote joy, spontaneity, laughter, and courage. It stimulates the pineal gland and promotes positive dreams. Aids in the retention of wealth and passion."

Designs for Ruby Rings

This romantic gemstone is an excellent alternative to traditional ring designs. Its vibrant color and variety of shapes and sizes make it suitable for the majority of ring designs.

In addition to solitaire rings, this gemstone looks stunning when set with a halo or cluster of diamonds. Because the deep red contrasts with the brilliant white diamonds.
