Your July birthstone – the story behind the ruby

July babies – you are a special bunch. You share your birthday month with International Free Hugs Day, World Chocolate day, and most importantly, Tom Hanks.

You’re a Cancer, nurturing and sensitive, or a Leo, bold and outgoing. And all of you have the most covetable of birthstones, the lustrous, wine-coloured ruby. Edge of Ember Ruby Charm Pendant

A cardinal gemstone, which traditionally signifies the rarest and most precious of stones, the ruby has been held in the highest esteem throughout history.

Symbolising passion, protection and prosperity, the ruby has found itself in the most peculiar of places – laid beneath buildings to secure strong foundations, and even implanted under the skin of Burmese warriors to make them invincible in battle. In ancient lore, it was a glowing inner fire that gave the ruby its blazing red colour – hot enough to boil water and melt wax.

If you're looking for a personalised gift for a July babe, you've come to the right place.  – wear your ruby to signify your lust for life, your power and your passion. We like your style.
