The beautiful Ruby is the birthstone for this month! Appropriate for this festive month of red, white, and blue, this stone is one of the most beautiful and natural stones.
The color of your Ruby is a big determining factor of how valuable it is. The deeper and more vivid the hue, the more prized. A dark vivid red or a slightly purple red tone is much sought after with a Ruby. Rubies are historically known as being the gemstone of love, and because the stone places higher on the hardness scale, it would be a perfect stone for a unique bride's engagement ring. Appropriate for everyday use, we think the Ruby is a stone that makes a lovely center stone, or accent stone in any piece of jewelry!
What do you think? Would you like a Ruby in your engagement ring?
