JULY'S BIRTHSTONE

Posted by on

Oh my goodness, where has this month gone?!

Just getting this blog posted in July...it's always the height of the wedding season and the creations have to come first but I didn't want to forget this either.

 

Very belated birthday greetings to all you July Babies. Did you know that Ruby is your birthstone? Also another interesting fact - rubies are technically the same as sapphires, all other colours of this specific mineral are known as sapphires, including pink, the red only are rubies.

The dark red known as pigeon blood is the most valuable colour of ruby, and the best specimens are traditionally thought to come from Mogok in northern Myanmar. 

These stones are thought to give the wearer health, wisdom and happiness. They are also considered to boost the heart and give the wearer more courage.

This does come at a high price, buying a ruby in a similar way to buying an emerald or sapphire can be a complicated business. There are a huge variety of quality levels available and prices vary hugely depending on the exact colour and clarity.

As with the other very expensive precious stones I don't offer rubies as a standard option within any of designs, but I can source one for many of my designs as a special order. Send me an email to discuss - nikki@nikkistarkjewellery.co.uk
