The July Birthstone: A Royal Flush

Adorned by royalty for centuries, the ruby has been crowned the ‘King of Gems’ for its unmistakably luxurious appearance. The July birthstone symbolizes passion and love, the perfect choice for brides who long for a fiery romance. The stone is second only to diamonds in terms of physical strength and durability, making it ideal for everyday wear and special occasions alike.

Fun fact: The ruby is very closely related to the sapphire. Both precious stones are a variety of the mineral corundum, however, ruby exists at the redder end of the spectrum.
