The gleaming ruby should adorn, All those who in July are born, For thus they'll be exempt and free, From lover's doubts and anxiety.
This excerpt was printed in a Tiffany & Co. pamphlet in the 1870s. Although July isn’t typically thought of as a month of love, its birthstone tells a different tale. Symbolically, rubies are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. This gem is a member of the corundum family. It’s perfect for everyday wear due to its durability – it’s the second hardest gemstone next to the diamond. The ruby ranges from orange to a purplish red in color, but is most prized when it comes in a deep red.
