If you are looking to make a romantic statement with a piece of jewelry, you can hardly find a more ardent gemstone than ruby, the birthstone for those born during the month of July. No other gemstone possesses an intense red glow that so strongly symbolizes enduring passion and unrestrained love. Its highly saturated red color radiates warmth and a strong sense of vitality. Long known as the “king of gemstones,” and most highly valued by nobility and royalty across a number of cultures, ruby is an extremely rare and valuable gemstone, especially when it displays its finer qualities. Ruby is also second only to diamond in terms of hardness, which means it can be worn every day. Rose gold is a spectacular way to add a unique twist to your jewelry collection.
