Planning on giving a birthday gift in July? Show someone that you care by presenting them with a beautiful handcrafted pair of cufflinks featuring the birthstone of July-the ruby. Said to guarantee health, wisdom and wealth the ruby is sourced from all over the world including popular mining countries such as Africa, Australia, Thailand and other Asian countries.
The word ruby originates from the Latin word rubens which means red and the most valuable and precious rubies are those that have a full, rich red colour. Rubies are also extremely tough and durable, being only slightly softer than a diamond. As a result they are an ideal stone to incorporate in jewellery that can be worn every day.
