The weather is starting to heat up, and July 4th is just around the corner! Every July we celebrate the birthday of the wonderful precious gemstone, the ruby. The ruby is from the family of corundum, and come from mines including the Burma and Africa (Siam). The great Burma ruby is also known by its nickname, "pigeon blood." Rubies have been popular throughout many different eras in history, including the Victorian, Art Deco and 1970's. The ruby has excellent durability, and a non treated ruby will demand a very high price tag in today's marketplace. The ruby's legend is known to ward off evil spirits, and promote health and healing. Our collection of ruby engagement rings, and jewelry, is always from different estates throughout the world. They are ethical and conflict free. Enjoy!
