A Blissful Stone – A Red Ruby is the Gem of the Month

 

The gleaming Ruby should adorn,
All those who in July are born,
For thus they’ll be exempt and free,
From lover’s doubts and anxiety.

There’s no better way to demonstrate your love than by giving a ruby in celebration of a July birthday, the month’s official birthstone. Rubies arouse the senses, stir the imagination, and are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. 

The ruby is associated with integrity, courage, happiness, confidence and strength. It also is thought to enhance vitality, impart a sense of bliss, and  encourage a desire for life.

Oscar Heyman loves working with rubies as they are harder than any natural gemstone except diamonds, which means a ruby is durable enough for everyday wear.

Fine-quality ruby is extremely rare, and the deeper red the ruby, the more valuable it is.  The Burmese rubies in this Oscar Heyman ruby and diamond necklace with earrings to match have exquisite color and are of the highest quality – a show stopper for sure!
