July Birthstone

Ignite Your Passion with Rubies: Discover the Fiery Splendor of July’s Birthstone Imagine adorning yourself with a gemstone so fiery and captivating that it has symbolized passion, power and love for centuries. Rubies, the birthstone for July, exude a deep, vibrant red that is unmatched in its allure and intensity, making them a perfect addition to any jewelry collection. Rubies are more than just beautiful gems; they are steeped in rich history and legend. Known as the “King of Gemstones,” rubies have been highly prized by royalty and warriors alike. Ancient civilizations believed rubies held protective powers, capable of warding off evil and bringing good fortune. Warriors in Burma, now Myanmar, where some of the finest rubies are found, would embed rubies into their armor to make them invincible in battle. Today, rubies continue to be a symbol of strength and courage, making them an ideal gift for those you admire and cherish. One of the most fascinating aspects of rubies is their formation. These precious gems are a variety of the mineral corundum, which is also the mineral that forms sapphires. The presence of chromium in corundum gives rubies their characteristic red color. The most coveted rubies are known as “pigeon blood” rubies, which display a pure, vibrant red with a hint of blue. The rarity of this color, combined with the gem's exceptional hardness—second only to diamonds—contributes to the ruby's significant value and allure. As jewelers, we are often asked about what to look for when choosing a ruby. The four Cs—color, clarity, cut, and carat weight—are crucial in determining a ruby’s quality and value. Color is the most important factor, with the most desirable rubies showcasing a deep, vivid red with excellent saturation. Clarity refers to the presence of inclusions, which are common in rubies. While some inclusions are acceptable, fewer inclusions generally indicate a higher quality gem. The cut of a ruby affects its brilliance and overall appearance, with well-cut stones reflecting light beautifully. Finally, carat weight will influence the ruby's size and value, with larger rubies being particularly rare and valuable. Rubies are incredibly versatile and can be fashioned into a wide range of jewelry pieces. A ruby necklace or pendant adds a bold statement to any outfit, instantly drawing attention and admiration. Ruby rings, whether solitaires or surrounded by diamonds, are perfect for engagements, anniversaries, or simply to celebrate a special occasion. Ruby earrings and bracelets also make exquisite gifts, adding a touch of elegance and fiery passion to everyday wear. In addition to their breathtaking beauty, rubies are also thought to hold metaphysical properties. They are believed to stimulate the heart chakra, promoting vitality, courage, and love. Wearing a ruby is said to increase energy and enthusiasm, making it an ideal gemstone for those seeking to invigorate their lives. The gem’s rich history and symbolic meanings make it a deeply personal and meaningful choice for jewelry lovers. For those born in July, rubies offer a special connection to their birth month, providing a unique and personal touch to their jewelry collection. As a birthstone, rubies are thought to bring good fortune, protection, and prosperity to their wearers. Gifting a ruby to someone born in July is not only a gesture of love but also a way to bestow these positive attributes upon them.

Emeralds are more than just beautiful gems; they are steeped in history and myth, with a rich cultural significance that spans continents and civilizations.

Even today, emeralds are often seen as a symbol of hope, renewal, and growth, making them a perfect choice for those seeking to add a touch of natural elegance to their jewelry collection. One of the most fascinating aspects of emeralds is their remarkable durability. With a hardness of 7.5 to 8 on the Mohs scale, emeralds are well-suited for everyday wear, whether in a stunning necklace, a pair of elegant earrings, or a statement ring. However, despite their durability, emeralds do require gentle care to maintain their luster and brilliance. To keep your emerald jewelry looking its best, simply clean it with warm, soapy water and avoid exposure to harsh chemicals or sudden changes in temperature. Another aspect that sets emeralds apart is their stunning clarity and color. The most prized emeralds are a vibrant green hue, reminiscent of springtime forests and lush landscapes. This captivating color is due to the presence of chromium, vanadium, and iron within the stone, which interact with its natural beryl structure to create an unparalleled depth and richness of color. Whether set against sparkling diamonds or paired with other colored gemstones, emeralds add a touch of luxury and sophistication to any ensemble. At our store, we are proud to offer a stunning selection of emeralds, including Colombian and Zambian emeralds. Colombian emeralds are world-renowned for their exceptional quality and stunning color, with a rich, velvety green hue that is unmatched by emeralds from any other region. Zambian emeralds, on the other hand, are prized for their incredible clarity and brilliance, with a bright, lively green color that is sure to turn heads wherever you go. Whether you prefer the rich, velvety green of Colombian emeralds or the bright, lively green of Zambian emeralds, you're sure to find the perfect emerald jewelry to suit your style and taste. In addition to their beauty and durability, emeralds also make an excellent investment. As one of the rarest and most valuable gemstones in the world, emeralds have maintained their value for centuries, making them a timeless and enduring addition to any jewelry collection. Whether you're looking for a unique engagement ring, a stunning necklace, or a pair of elegant earrings, emeralds are sure to make a statement and become a cherished heirloom for generations to come.
