July Birthstone: The Ruby

Cancer season is upon us! Pink, red and gorgeous all over, July is for celebrating the ruby. This vibrant July birthstone symbolizes passion, prosperity and protection and is one of the luckiest wedding presents you can receive!

The earliest records of this mysterious glowing stone date back to 200 B.C. and were highly regarded in Chinese and Hindu culture. To protect themselves in battle, ancient warriors would adorn their uniforms in rubies in hopes of sparing their life. They would also bury rubies underneath building foundations to secure good fortune and prosperity.
