About this Gemstone

Ruby, the king of precious gems, is the birthstone for fortunate folks born in July. The color of a Ruby is the most important feature of the gemstone. Rubies are available in a range of red hues from purplish and bluish red to orange-red.

For centuries this gem has been considered the king of all gems. It was believed that wearing a fine red Ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner and amplified energy, heightened awareness, promotes courage and brings success in wealth, love and battle.
