Fiery Red, the Ruby is July's Birthstone
by Chavez Fine Jewelers Inc.
Fiery Red, the Ruby is Julys Birthstone Ruby is the one of the most fascinating gemstones on Earth. It has been treasured for centuries and is known as the modern birthstone for the month of July

It's further suggested that this gem is given on the 40th wedding anniversary. The word ruby comes from the Latin term for red, 'ruber'.

Fiery Red, the Ruby is Julys Birthstone Ruby is the red form of the corundum mineral. Its sizzling color is caused by traces of chromium. Other color varieties of corundum are referred to as sapphires.

Owing to its flaring red hue, ruby is mainly ascribed with love, beauty, royalty, wealth and power. When worn as an amulet, ruby is said to awaken one's passion. It also provides strength and wisdom to its wearer which led to success in different aspects of life.

Fiery Red, the Ruby is Julys Birthstone Like many gems, rubies are attributed with various curative powers. They were thought to treat bleeding and cure illnesses related to heart and brain. In gem lore, ruby is also used as an antidote to certain poisons. During the middle Ages, the fiery gem was believed to guard its wearer from evil thoughts and desires. It is also believed to warn its wearer of danger by changing its color.

Fiery Red, the Ruby is Julys Birthstone Natural rubies have inclusions of rutile needles in them which give the stones the effect of asterism or a star. Some exhibit three-point or six-point asterism and they are often cut into a properly oriented cabochon to show the luminous star effect properly. Because of these common imperfections, most rubies are often subjected to heat treatment and this is widely accepted in the industry. However, among the most valued rubies are untreated stones that naturally feature excellent quality.

The rich ruby deposits are mined in Thailand, India, Cambodia and Pakistan. Other sources are also found in the U.S. states of North Carolina, South Carolina, Montana and Wyoming.

There's no better way to show your appreciation than by giving a dazzling jewelry piece whether it's a classic ruby pendant, a gorgeous pair of earrings or a pretty ruby bracelet. It makes perfect birthday present for July born as ruby brings good fortune and awakens passion. For more sophisticated design, the red stone complements perfectly with diamond accents.

At Chavez Fine Jewelers, you’ll find a vast selection of sophisticated jewelry pieces with excellent craftsmanship. You can choose from a variety of precious colored stones such as rubies in an assortment of cuts, shapes and sizes.
