July Ruby

Ruby is a member of the corundum family, and is one of the “Big Three” of precious gemstones, together with sapphire and emerald.

The intense red of rubies, added to their durability and versatility, contribute to their popularity.

The most highly prized rubies come from Burma, and famously were traded along the historic Silk Road, linking the East to West.

Poetic descriptions of the ruby red include pomegranate, sunset and pigeon’s blood – and every other shade of the stone is judged against these iconic colours. While the gem quality, translucent ruby can have eye-watering price tags. Today you can buy opaque ruby is a variety of cuts. These have rutile inclusions, which obstruct some of the light seen through the stone. They are charming and give one access to the lovely colour of rubies at affordable prices, and are ideal for design jewellery.

Below are a few items that show off this iconic birthstone.
