Happy Birthday July babies, and get ready to sparkle with your gemstone ruby!
Perhaps one of the world’s most iconic gems; ruby’s glorious red hue has fascinated and delighted for centuries. At once the colour of our most passionate emotions – fury and love – this gemstone is also associated with power and desire. Many medieval Europeans wore rubies to guarantee health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love. In ancient traditions, rubies were treasured for their colour’s similarity to that most precious life force: blood. Indeed, thanks in part to the characteristic deep red ruby colour, in ancient Asian cultures this gemstone, symbolising youthful energy, was believed to offer protection, invincibility, and power. As such, ruby has most often been associated with great warriors and royalty and called the “king of precious stones” or ratnaraj.
Even in Ancient Rome, rubies were acknowledged for their properties of hardness and density, properties which still today give rubies their value! In addition to the beautiful deep red that makes rubies so desirable to the eye, rubies rate a 9 out of 10 on the Mohs Hardness scale, making this gemstone the toughest after diamonds, and therefore suitable for daily wear. You can clean your brilliant ruby jewellery at home with warm water and mild dish soap, or even just a damp cloth!
Ruby jewellery is always mystically beautiful, and wearing your pieces is sure to make you shine, July babies!
