July Birthstone

July’s birthstone, the ruby, is one of the most sought-after gems in the world. Known for its striking red hue, the ruby symbolises passion, protection, and prosperity. At Brinkhaus Jewellers, we celebrate this magnificent gemstone, offering a range of handcrafted pieces that highlight the ruby’s natural beauty. Let's dive into what makes the ruby so special.

The Allure of Rubies

Rubies are a variety of the mineral corundum, the same family that sapphires belong to. What sets rubies apart is their captivating red colour, which ranges from pinkish-red to a deep, rich crimson. The most prized rubies exhibit a vibrant, pure red with a hint of blue, often referred to as "pigeon's blood."

The intensity and hue of a ruby’s colour play a significant role in determining its value. In addition to colour, clarity is essential; however, it is common for rubies to have inclusions. These natural imperfections are often accepted as part of the stone's character.

Historical Significance

Rubies have been cherished for centuries across various cultures. In ancient India, rubies were called the “king of precious stones” due to their rarity and beauty. Warriors in Burma (now Myanmar) embedded rubies into their skin, believing it made them invincible in battle. In medieval Europe, rubies were thought to bring good health, wealth, wisdom, and success in love.

Symbolism and Meaning

The ruby's fiery red colour has always been associated with strong emotions and passion. It symbolises love and romance, making it a popular choice for engagement rings and romantic gifts. Moreover, rubies are believed to provide protection from misfortune and bring peace. They are said to stimulate the heart chakra, encouraging vitality and energy.

Rubies in Modern Jewellery

Today, rubies continue to captivate jewellery enthusiasts. Whether set in rings, necklaces, earrings, or bracelets, rubies add a touch of elegance and sophistication. At our Claremont jewellery store, we specialise in creating fine, handcrafted jewellery that showcases the beauty of rubies. Each piece is designed to highlight the gemstone's natural splendour, making it a perfect choice for those born in July or anyone who appreciates exquisite gemstones.

Caring for Your Ruby Jewellery

Rubies are one of the hardest gemstones, second only to diamonds, making them an excellent choice for everyday wear. However, to keep your ruby jewellery looking its best, proper care is essential. Clean your ruby pieces regularly with warm, soapy water and a soft brush. Avoid exposing them to harsh chemicals or extreme temperatures, which can damage the stone.
