July: Ignite the Flame with a Ruby!

July 09, 2014

By Stephanie Desmond for Henne Jewelers

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.
