Happy Birthday July! The Beautifully Captivating Ruby Red Gemstone

Rare Red Rubies

July babies are lucky to call Ruby their birthstone. Not only are rubies stunningly beautiful and captivating, but also they are the most valuable species in the corundum mineral family, (which also includes sapphires, another member of the species) and can command the highest per-carat price of all the colored gemstones.

Color has to be the most important factor in determining the quality of a ruby gemstone. The finest rubies have a vibrant red to purplish color. Take a look at the color of our La Tortuga Cocktail Rings or Makai Stackables encrusted with ruby gemstones to see the amazing color it reflects. This is the most sought after ruby color, a vivid reddish-purple and is very important to the value of the stone!

Ruby is one of four precious gemstones (others include diamonds, emeralds, and sapphires) and known for rarity, monetary value and hardness. The name ruby comes from rubeus which means “red”. In its purest state, the mineral corundum is colorless.  Chromium is the element responsible for ruby’s rich red color.

Ruby has been revered in many cultures throughout history and represents passion, protection and prosperity. Corundum (ruby, sapphire) is the second hardest gemstone after diamond, which makes it very durable for daily wear. Kate Alexandra Jewelry has a variety of beautiful sapphire and ruby gemstone jewelry, perfect for any July birthday gift.

 

Too Pretty to Eat?

What are two of our favorite things in the world? That would have to be fine jewelry and pretty desserts. What if you could put the two together? Well at Mama's Fish House on Maui, Hawai'i they have done just that. This is the Polynesian Black Pearl Dessert, and it's TO DIE for! Inside the coconut wafer lies a Tahitian Vanilla with an outer glossy chocolate ganache. Once the outer chocolate orb is punctured, beneath it lies a sweetly tart lilikoi cream center. The plate is decorated beautifully with chocolate and lilikoi sauce. It's almost too pretty to eat!
