Resplendent Red: The Ruby Gemstone

Radiant and magnificent, the deep bold red of the ruby has captured the hearts of many…

There is truly no better way to showcase your love than with a ruby; its vivacious and vivid colour is truly the ultimate present for any whose birthday is in July. Rubies are adored for their incredible red colour, setting those around it alight in its red refraction – dazzling the skin and creating the perfect statement piece. The rarest colour of the ruby is a deep, gorgeous medium, medium dark red or a purplish red. If a ruby is too light or contains too much purple or orange, it will not be called a ruby but instead a ‘fancy-colour sapphire’. Rubies are said to guarantee health, wisdom, wealth and love; it is also one of the hardest natural gemstones which allows it to be worn every day.

A known lover of the ruby gemstone is the utterly gorgeous Sofia Vergara…

Known for her role as Gloria in TV’s Modern Family, Sofia Vergara has hit many red carpet functions sporting gorgeous red rubies in her stunning A-list jewellery. Born on July 10, not only is the ruby one of Sofia’s favourite gemstones, it is also her birthstone! Most recently Sofia was spotted at the 2013 White House Correspondents’ Dinner wearing a ring, bracelet and gorgeous earrings emblazoned with red rubies, pink sapphires and amethysts. This Columbian beauty looked beyond beautiful with her elegantly styled ruby jewellery.

An unknown author wrote a beautiful poem about each of the year’s birthstones, and at Kennedy Jewellers we are happy to share this month’s verse with you:

The glowing ruby shall adorn,
Those who in July are born;
Then they’ll be exempt and free
From love’s doubts and anxiety.
