The traditional gem stone for people born in the month of July is ruby; however they can be costly, so some people are never fortunate to own one.
Not to worry though; there are plenty of pretty red stones around, some even beautifully set in sterling silver, so everyone should be able to look divine in red for July.
Rubies are considered the stone of love, energy, passion, power, and a zest for life. It was believed that wearing a fine red ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. Some believe, when rubbed on the skin, they were also thought to restore youth and vitality.
