There’s no better way to demonstrate your love than by giving a ruby in
celebration of a July birthday. Rubies arouse the senses, stir the imagination
and are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and success in love. Ruby
is a variety of the gems species corundum. It is harder than any natural gemstone
except diamond, which means a ruby is durable enough for everyday wear.
Fine-quality ruby is extremely rare, and the color of the gem is most important
to its value. The most prized color is a medium or medium dark vivid red or
slightly purplish red. If the gem is too light or has too much purple or orange,
it will be called a fancy-color sapphire.
