Sunny yellow diamonds and rich blue sapphires may be the first jewels you think of when someone says summer because they reflect the hues of the season. But let’s not forget that summer is the season of romance, and nothing says summer lovin’ like the stone that represents passion.
Rubies take the stage this month as the July birthstone. And though they’re known for being a symbol of passion, they also stand for protection, prosperity and energy and power. They’re the stone of nobility and courage.
If those words describe you or someone you know, then a ruby piece may be the perfect gift (or proposal piece) — especially for a July baby. It can be everything from understated and classic to extravagant and showstopping, satisfying any woman’s taste. And our diamond lovers won’t feel left out either. Each of our favorite pieces also features diamond accents for a glittering gift that has it all. And ruby jewelry is not only beautiful. Because of its symbolism, it’s meaningful too. Check out a few of our favorites and why we love them.
Style # LVEDN2017RU
These aren’t your typical drop earrings because she isn’t your typical woman. Just like her, these ruby stunners are something special. They’ll steal her heart with perfectly cut oval rubies surrounded by not one but two ovals of diamonds. The outer halo features smaller pave diamonds while larger ones adorn the inner halo, which is also accented with bezel-set rounds.
She’ll love wearing these to weddings, date nights and everything in between. If you’re looking for something that embodies everything unique — and Uneek — this is the piece for your sweetheart.
Ruby petal ring
From the LVS1015OV Series
It’s romance on top of romance with the Petals Collection. These gemstone rings will no doubt catch the eye of the unconventional bride-to-be. And our ruby piece is certainly an on-trend piece since Katy Perry’s engagement ring looks quite similar to it. This style breaks barriers with a gemstone center stone instead of a diamond one, which is surrounded by “petals” of round diamonds, giving the ring a floral motif.
While this may not be a birthday gift for a July baby, it can certainly symbolize the birth of the next chapter of your love story and hold special significance this way. If her birthday happens to be in July too, though, it’ll be all the more meaningful when you propose.
