This handpicked collection of handmade July birthstone jewelry is made up of a mix of earrings and rings that feature the beauty of deep red ruby stones. Some are set in silver, some in gold. And the range in prices will accommodate most jewelry budgets. Birthstone jewelry is a wonderful connection to our past. The practice of wearing gemstones to attune to their vibratory powers is ancient. And associating specific gemstones with birth months goes back over 2000 years and has evolved along several separate cultural paths. This collection of beautiful handmade birthstone jewelry is based on the familiar modern United States standard that was created in 1912 (and updated in 1952, 2002, and 2016): Garnet (January), Amethyst (February), Aquamarine, Bloodstone (March), Diamond (April), Emerald (May), Pearl, Moonstone (June), Ruby (July), Peridot (August), Sapphire (September), Opal, Pink Tourmaline (October), Citrine (November), Turquoise, Zircon, Tanzanite (December).
