July Birthstone:

Ruby

We love (red) fireworks because they remind us of July’s brilliant birthstone, ruby. The word ruby comes from the Latin word, Rubens which means red, although rubies can be pink, too. As beautiful as they are, almost all rubies have flaws; those without imperfections are rare, and priced higher than some diamonds! Rubies are often related to happiness, embracing the essence of life because of their brilliant color. If there is one gemstone that represents the passion of love, it is definitely the ruby. According to ancient folklore, people of India believed rubies would help them be at peace with their enemies. A ruby amulet, pendant, or charm is believed to bestow harmony, success, emotional balance, and contentment to its wearer. As a symbol of enduring love, rubies are believed to enhance one’s powers of seduction and ensure everlasting passion.
