Rubies are July Birthstone

July is here.. ahh the beach, the sun and, yes, Ruby is the July birthstone and what a glorious one. The ruby is said to symbolize great passion, energy, prosperity and courage.

The Burma ruby is known for it's deep pigeon blood red color.   Rubies are mined in Madagascar and India. Burma rubies, like fine sapphire and fine emeralds,  command  high price, especially for the Pigeon Blood color.

Happy Birthday July babies!
