July Birthstone - Ruby

The Ruby is one of the four main gemstones, the others being Diamond, Sapphire and Emerald. Known for its luscious rich red colour the Ruby is considered to be one of the desirable and passionate gemstones on earth.

It was not for no reason that the name 'ruby' was derived from the Latin word 'rubens', meaning 'red'. The red of the ruby is incomparable: warm and fiery. Two magical elements are associated with the symbolism of this colour: fire and blood, implying warmth and life for mankind.

My first foray into working with rubies has produced this newly listed pair of Ruby and Gold Herringbone Earrings. Made with 14k gold fill wire, the rubies create a gorgeous rich contrast to the yellow colour of the gold.

Here are some more examples of gorgeous ruby jewellery from the JETs.
