Tradition holds that there is a specific birthstone is associated with each month of the year.
The origin of birthstones is believed to reach all the way back to the breastplate of Aaron in Jewish history, which contained twelve gemstones representing the twelve tribes of Israel. The modern list was created in 1912, only changing once since then with the addition of the December tanzanite. There are various myths and legends surrounding all of the birthstones, and some say that wearing your birthstone during your birth month heightens its powers.
The July birthstone is the ruby. Rubies are said to inspire the imagination, heighten the senses and to offer wealth and success, wisdom and health. Fine quality rubies are exceptionally rare; the value is based primarily upon the color of the gem. The most coveted hue is a medium or medium-dark vibrant red, or a purplish-red color; but like the emerald, most rubies on the market have had their color enhanced in some way – making a true red ruby a unique treasure. While rubies make a stunning birthday gift, not everyone can manage to purchase one, so the floral artists at Rose Hill Flowers have created a beautiful alternative – a representation of ruby red roses to be sent to your loved ones celebrating a special day.
The birth flower of July is the delicate blue delphinium. It was mentioned that some of the most desired of the gems have a purple-blue tint to them; this makes the combination of ruby flowers and blue delphinium in a birthday arrangement a wonderful and meaningful gift. Our floral designers have gone out of their way to create this gorgeous bouquet that we know they will love – but if you want something one of a kind, just ask! Our skilled artisans can bring a birthday vision to life through flowers.
