Ruby

Rubies are the official birthstone of July, and are known for their beautiful red colour; ranging from deep blood red to a paler rose red. Therefore it is easy to see why the word “Ruby” was derived from the Latin rubeus, meaning “red”. Today’s ruby signifies love, passion and good fortune.

Rubies are a variety of corundum, this is what gives the stone its vibrant colour, and also causes its luminous glow. High quality rubies are transparent, vibrant and deeper red. It is the second hardest natural gemstones, with only diamonds being harder. Often given as a gift for 15th or 40th wedding anniversary. Can  make a great alternative the the classic engagement ring.
