July birthstone jewellery, lets start by saying July’s traditional and modern birthstone is a ruby. Don’t worry if you are not keen on rubies, I can always find another birthstone you may prefer. For example onyz is an alternative birthstone, or choose the zodiac one, or the guardian angel birth gem for July is Sapphire. The USA birthstone is Turquoise ( might need to double check that one) but you get the idea. Therefore don’t feel it has to be a ruby.
I’m a great believer that everything happens for a reason.
In this instance I thought I already had some beautiful rubies, but my supplier ran out at the same time as I did. So I looked else where and found some even more beautiful rubies. They are smaller than the original but they are an absolutely beautiful colour and lovely quality. It was obviously meant to be!
However this did mean that I have had to rephotograph all the rubies and am in the process of redoing the videos.
The phototgraphs are all done now, the videos are work in progress. Here is the July birthstone jewellery with the new rubies. I hope you like them.
Obviously gemstones have different attributes, meanings and properties. The ruby is said to symbolise love, passion, wealth, and peace. In ancient times, people wore it as protection against evil and harm.
Rubies are part of the beautiful and highly sort after corundum family of gemstones. The other being sapphire. All gem colours being caused by small amounts of chemical impurities. For instance chromium gives the rich red of the ruby.
I do hope you like these new rubies, I think they are really beautiful.
I have started adding videos of my ruby jewellery to Youtube. There aren’t many on there at the moment but more will follow. I find the videos really help as you can see the jewellery in more detail and from all angles.
