July always brings the heat. 
 
As the mercury rises across the country, it feels fitting that we celebrate July birthdays with a birthstone that is red hot: ruby. 
 
There are many defining qualities to love about ruby. It has a rich history, with folklore crediting it with protecting soldiers and curing heartache. While some are drawn to this romantic lore, others are drawn to its rich crimson color. 
 
Consumers have known ruby as one of the most “precious” gemstones for decades, equating it with riches and wealth. Jewelry designers are knocking it out of the park with breathtaking creations using ruby. 
 
Anyone celebrating a birthday in the month of July would be exceptionally lucky to receive any of these pieces. Here are some exquisite pieces of ruby jewelry to explore.
