July Birthstones

Rubies are both the Modern and Traditional birthstone for people born during the month of July.  Rubellite, Tourmaline, Carnelian, Sapphire, along with Red Gemstones are considered the Alternative birthstones by Gem Dealers, Jewelry Designers, and Jewelry Manufacturers.  A true Ruby is actually the mineral Corundum. This mineral comes in a lot of colors but only when it is red is it considered a Ruby. Any other color of this mineral is usually considered a Sapphire. White Sapphires should not be confused with diamonds as they are a different stone. Corundum is one of the hardest natural minerals known to man.

For an elegant and rich look you may want to consider a combination of Rubies and White Sapphires. This gives the appearance of rubies mixed with Diamonds and has a nice effect. This also reflects light better for a glistening effect. The White Sapphires are less expensive than you average Diamonds but look very much the same.
