For those born in July, rubies are a timeless symbol of luxury. The name comes from the Latin word “Rubens” which translates to “red,” and they belong to the corundum family. Rubies must be in some shade of red to officially be labeled as such; all other colors are considered sapphires. Of particular interest is the deep red hue known as "pigeon's blood," which is highly sought-after due to its striking vibrancy. Additionally, most rubies will emit a glow when exposed to ultraviolet lighting, due to their Chromium content interacting with UV radiation.
For centuries the world’s main source of rubies would come from Mogok Valley in Burma. Nowadays rubies come from various parts of the world such as India, Thailand, Vietnam, Burma, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Africa, Australia, Colombia, Japan, Brazil, Greenland, Sri Lanka, and Scotland.
