The birthstone for the month of July is the Ruby. The name “Ruby” is derived from the Latin word ruber which means “red”. The color red symbolize passion and love!
The finest color of a Ruby is a deep red with a hint of purple.
In addition to being the birthstone for the month of July, the Ruby is also traditionally given for the 15th and 40th wedding anniversary.
The best way to safely clean a Ruby is by using warm soapy water and a soft bristle toothbrush.
