The birthstone for July is the ruby, which has been revered since ancient times as a symbol of prosperity, passionate love, and protection. In addition to ruby rings being a great gift for someone born in July, it is also commonly given on the 15th and 40th wedding anniversaries.
Many people believe that rubies have great power, especially when worn during the month of July. They are said to amplify positive energy and enhance the senses. Some feel that wearing ruby rings all the time will bring good health, much wisdom, plenty of wealth, and extreme success in love and relationships.
When you are shopping for ruby rings, you will come to realize that all natural rubies have imperfections. This is not a bad thing because these imperfections help to determine authenticity and can even increase the value of the ruby. Two coveted imperfections are seeing a cat’s eye or a star effect. You can expect to pay top dollar for ruby rings with these inclusions.
There are also plenty of affordable ruby rings on the market, so you don’t have to mortgage your home to give the love of your life this expression of powerful love. Even lower-quality rubies can look stunningly beautiful, especially when you choose a nice setting.
