This listing is for a sterling silver ring with a sterling silver stone setting, surrounding a 4mm wide rose cut opaque ruby stone. You can add a 9ct eco gold or rose gold stone setting in the menu if you'd like to add a touch of luxury and mix precious metals. I try to source slightly more pinky rubies but each is individual so may vary in shade from the images.
Birthstones are said to have originated from the 12 gemstones that adorned the breastplate of Aaron representing the 12 tribes of Israel. The colours of the stones had the greatest significance and it is thought that the specific stones have been adapted over time, but the colours have remained.
Each stone is said to have it's own properties and bring health and luck to the wearer of their stone. Nowadays we use them to represent loved ones too, and this is where the idea of birthstone stacking rings originated. Choosing your own stone, the stone of someone you love, or a combination of stones to represent more than one loved one.
The stone for July is Ruby, one of the original cardinal gemstones and believed to have properties including increased energy and concentration, honour and compassion.
The images show a sterling silver stone setting but you can add a 9ct eco gold bezel (stone setting) to add a touch of extra luxury. the ring band is eco sterling silver, made using 100% recycled silver.
Your ring will arrive carefully wrapped in tissue and gift boxed.
