The weather isn’t the only thing heating up in July. This month also celebrates the glowing red of ruby gemstones, the July birthstone. Symbolic of love, passion, desire, protection, and prosperity (to name a few), this red hot gemstone has a long history. The name ruby comes from the Latin word ruber, which means “red.” Ruby is also known as the “stone of kings” for its connection to power and wealth.
Similar to sapphires, rubies are a nine on the Mohs hardness scale, second to only diamonds. Believe it or not, rubies and sapphires are comprised of the same mineral, corundum. The July birthstone gets its red hue from trace amounts of the element chromium and comes in various reds, from blush pinks to darker shades of brown and maroon. Its fiery and bold color has blazed a trail throughout history and is the subject of many legends and myths.
Whether you’re celebrating a July birthday or simply want to add a luminous addition to your summer wardrobe, let’s explore a few ruby pieces that are igniting our inspiration this month.
