Legend says that a ruby’s red glow comes from an internal flame that can’t be extinguished—and the same can be said for a July baby’s fiery personality!
The actual red glow comes from the trace element chromium that causes fluorescence and contributes to the intensity of the red hue in each gemstone. A ruby measures 9 on the Mohs scale, making it the hardest stone second to the diamond. These valuable gemstones are used in laser technology and mechanical movements in luxury timepieces. On a spiritual level, rubies are also believed to represent love, health, and wisdom.
In addition to being the official gemstone for those born in July, rubies are a traditional gift on 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries. No matter how a ruby falls into your personal story, these stunning, red hot stones make for some beautiful fashion jewelry. To celebrate the month of July, we’ve selected some of our favorite ruby pieces from the Uneek collection.
