“The glowing ruby shall adorn,
Those who in July are born;
Then they’ll be exempt and free
From love’s doubts and anxiety.”
The month of July boasts the deep, blood-red ruby birthstone associated with passion, power and love. Known as the ‘king of the gemstones’, the ruby is one of the world’s four precious stones along with emerald, sapphire and diamond.
Legend has it that the wearer of a ruby is said to be blessed with health, wealth, wisdom and a fruitful life of love. Rubies are even referenced in the bible. Women in particular are seen to be an aura of beauty when wearing the precious stone.
Rubies are extremely rare, especially in deep red shades and the clearer the gem, the more valuable it is said to be.
It’s no secret that the Queen loves rubies and Dorothy’s famous ruby slippers stole the show in the Wizard of Oz.
