Birth Stone for July
Birthstones are gemstones that connect each month of the year. These stones are usually associated with specific meanings.
The birthstones we currently associate with each month are not necessarily the same ones used centuries ago. During ancient times, birthstones were related to the 12 gemstones on the breastplate of the High Priest of the Israelites, from the Book of Exodus in the Bible.
July Birthstone - Ruby
There are two different birthstone charts: traditional and modern. The list of modern birthstones was released in 1912 by the National Association of Jewellers, featuring more gem options than the traditional list.
July is the month of the ruby — a vibrantly red gemstone that has been worn by many for generations.
Healing and Spiritual Properties
Rubies were known to have healing and spiritual properties, during the ancient times. It was also said that those who wore rubies would be blessed with health and success.
Rubies also stimulate the heart chakra, balancing and encouraging one to follow their dreams and aspirations, thus promoting clarity, positivity and passion.
Thus, this stone is said to symbolise passion, kindness and dignity.

One of July’s birth flowers is the water lily, known to symbolise rebirth, purity and beauty.
July’s birthstone necklace contains a red agate gemstone (to represent ruby) with a water lily petal, taken from an actual water lily flower, then pressed and cast in silver.
