Ruby is the Birthstone of July, a bright “Pigeon’s blood red” to an almost “Pyrope Garnet red” (deep red) it is a symbol of both love and Power.

The Pigeon’s blood red variety, (yes, that’s what it’s called) from Burma, is the most prized kind, shown in the first picture, a good setting, don’t you think? Two Doves above a Pigeon blood red Ruby.
