The day we were born marks us and can imprint distinctive features on our personality, which is why in ancient times each month of the year was associated with a particular gemstone. Gemstones have qualities associated with which we can feel aligned; so wearing a jewel with the gem of the month we were born can influence the empowerment of these qualities.
At Roosik & Co we are thinking of those who came into the world on a radiant day in July ... Can you imagine what it would be like to crown this event with a jewel that wore a ruby, your birthstone, just as radiant…?
The Ruby and You
The most important deposits of the precious ruby are found in countries such as Thailand, Myanmar and Sri Lanka; perhaps that is why it is not uncommon for it to have a special accreditation among the ancient Hindu peoples, who believed that this gem had a prominent value above the rest and regarded it as the "queen of gems." Depending on the site from which it is extracted, ruby stones have slightly different colors, but always around the deep reddish hue that so identifies this gem.
It is precisely this red color that has given it the name we know it from, as ‘ruby’ comes from the Latin ‘rubens’.
Whatever its specific tone, the intense red of the ruby still exerts a great power of attraction. Red is such a symbolic color! It transmits strength and endurance to us, and perhaps that is why it was the favorite stone of the warriors of antiquity; it is no coincidence that, along with sapphire, it is the hardest mineral after diamond!
The power of such an intense and direct color is indisputable and captivates all eyes with the same centrality and prominence as the July sun. Maybe that's why it is associated with people born this month, who are as happy as summer and feel comfortable being the center of attention - just like the star king this month who owes his name to the Roman Emperor Julius Caesar! -.
But red has also become the symbolic color of love and passion, an association so present in our material culture that the first instinct when drawing a heart is to paint it red. People born in July also have a lot of this facet, because they are empathetic and honest, just like love is when it really is; right?
