Rubies are some of the most beautiful stones out there, but they are also one of the stones with the longest history as well. Rubies are one of the big three stones, Rubies, Emeralds, and Sapphires, that have generally been the most coveted, the most prized stones out there.
Next to Diamonds, there are few stones valued as highly as Rubies.
Of course, looking at the rich pinkish-red hues of a classic Ruby, it’s no surprise that these crystals have been considered so special! But did you know that Rubies and Sapphires are technically the same stone?
Yep! Sapphires come in a wide range of colors, but only the red ones get their own unique name, Rubies!
July is lucky to have Rubies as its birthstone, and people born in July get the special privilege of claiming Ruby for their birthstone jewelry!
Rubies are associated with love, strength, and have long been considered a symbol of privilege, power, and wealth. These stones aren’t just beautiful, they have a ton of positive associations. Rubies are even considered a protective stone!
Giving a gift of Ruby birthstone jewelry is a fantastic way to make the recipient feel special on their birthday. Not to mention that customizing your birthday present with their birthstone is a fantastic way to show that you’ve thought about them and taken care with choosing their gift.
Not sure what you should get this year? I can help. Here is a selection of my handmade Ruby birthstone jewelry, perfect for gifting!
Fantastic Ruby Birthstone Jewelry Gifts
Before I dive into the jewelry, a couple of quick notes for you.
First, I use natural stones in my jewelry, which means that every stone is a unique creation. I love the variations between the stones, but it does mean that my jewelry isn’t exactly like the product photos 100% of the time.
Small differences in the color, pattern, and details of the stones can vary from piece to piece. However, I do choose the stones for all of my jewelry individually, making sure the size, shape, and color harmonize well with the design.
The other thing I want to mention is that all of my natural stone jewelry, including my birthstone jewelry, is handmade to order. That means that if you’re ordering jewelry for an upcoming birthday, you should plan on ordering as soon as possible. I will make the jewelry for your order as quickly as possible, but shipping times can vary.
Summer shipping can be especially challenging because of heat delays and severe weather warnings, which often slow shipping trucks. So, if you want to be on the safe side, it’s better to order at least 2 weeks before you need the jewelry. So get your orders in soon!
Alright, with that out of the way, let’s take a look at some of my handmade Ruby jewelry!
Artistic Ruby Hearts Hoop Earrings
Want to get someone special in your life a unique gift this year? My Artistic Ruby Hearts hoop earrings are a fun and different take on classic hoops that are sure to please.
Whether you’re giving these earrings to a romantic partner, or perhaps to a younger birthday girl whose just started wearing earrings, they are sure to communicate a clear message of love and appreciation.
Better yet, these earrings are much more lightweight than standard hoop earrings, which helps make them more comfortable!
Like all of my handmade earrings, these hoops are made with hypoallergenic and nickel-free materials, which also makes them much safer and more comfortable for people with skin sensitivities or who can only wear certain kinds of earrings.
The sparkling Ruby stones on each pair of earrings adds a gorgeous pop of color. The deep pinkish red of natural Ruby is absolutely enchanting, and the light faceting of these stones helps to catch the light and draw the eye.
Perfect for casual wearing as well as special occasions, Ruby lovers are sure to add these earrings to their regular jewelry rotation.
Red Raspberries Ruby Dangling Earrings
Wanting more of a classic design?
My Red Raspberries Ruby Earrings offer one of the most classic dangling earring designs, paired with a French Hook for ultimate comfort.
One of the reasons I call this design Red Raspberries earrings is that the shape and faceting of these Rubies really does look like natural raspberries plucked fresh from the vine. Strung in a row, like on these earrings, these stones sparkle lightly in the sun, with dazzling effect.
Since these stones are mostly if not completely opaque, they also work as a more casual look, which makes them perfect for daily wear. The color seems richer and redder thanks to the opaque crystal structure.
Red Raspberries Ruby Earrings and Necklace Set
Want to go all out for birthdays this year?
My Red Raspberries Ruby Earrings & Necklace Set gives you the same elegant design as the earrings, but with a matching necklace that’s perfect for more formal occasions.
This set is a sure winner for any ruby lovers in your life, not to mention a great way to show appreciation to the special July birthdays this year.
Want just the necklace? I have the Red Raspberries Necklace as a separate option as well, or you could order the set and just give the earrings or necklace now, and save the other half for the next special occasion!
