July Spotlight Birthstone: RUBY

The gemstone ruby is the red variety of the mineral Corundum (the word “ruby” is a derivative of the Latin word for “red”), which is the second hardest mineral (after Diamond). It comes in a variety of colors, and is considered a sapphire in any color except red. Rubies range in hue from an orangey red to a purplish red, but the most prized gems are a true red in color. The ruby is among the most highly prized of gems throughout history; considered to have magical powers, it was worn by many royalty as a talisman against evil. The red glow of this stone is also thought to represent an internal flame that can not be extinguished, symbolic of everlasting love.


This month’s featured birthstone jewelry piece is from the King Jewelers Custom Designs collection, a platinum ruby and diamond cocktail ring set with a stunning 7.01ct oval-cut ruby. It is surrounded by a halo of round-cut diamonds and additional diamonds along the band. For more information, visit Kings1912.com
