July Jewelry (Ruby)Jewelry / Birthstones Jewelry / July (Ruby)
Rubies are both the traditional and modern choices for gemstones that adorn July jewelry. People have known of the ruby since ancient times, especially in Asian countries. There, people hold it in high esteem, often placing rubies at the bases of new buildings to bring good luck. Rubies rank as one of the four precious stones. The others are diamonds, sapphires, and emeralds. In nature, rubies come in a variety of red hues. They often have underlying colors such as brown, pink, or purple. The ideal ruby color is the vividly clear medium-dark red traditionally considered ruby red. In underlying tones, purple is always preferred over any others. Rubies look in yellow gold or in white. The red tones come out very well in any piece of July jewelry we have in our collection. It makes a great gift to present to a new mother with a July baby. It is also a great way to mark other special occasions.
