Hello and Happy Birthday, July Babies!
Welcome to the Wonderful World of Ruby!

RubiesSocial

Here are five FUN facts about the gemstone, Ruby:

1. There’s no Place like Home!  You know we can’t talk about Rubies without talking about Dorothy’s red slippers!  Did you know that in the original novel, the slippers were silver?  Yep!  For the 1939 film, they changed them to Ruby red to take advantage of the (then new) Technicolor film process!  There’s no place like home!  There’s no place like home!
2. Jessica Simpson Said YES to Ruby! Jessica Simpson’s engagement ring is a huge (over 5 carats!) Ruby, flanked with two very nice sized white diamonds!  Hubby also got a ruby in his custom wedding band to complement Jessica’s!  While Jessica’s birthday is in July, the color red represents so much more to the couple!
3. The Liberty Bell Ruby…Largest Ruby Ever!  The Liberty Bell Ruby was the largest mined in the world!  Found in the 1950’s in east Africa, weighed four pounds, was 8500 carats and was sculpted into a mini Liberty Bell.  It was valued at $2,000,000, until it was stolen!
4. The King of Gems! The Ruby, known for bestowing fortune, is the second hardest mineral…beat only by the diamond!  Wow…fortune and brawn…I’m game!
5. You have what? ICE.com has a great selection of Ruby jewelry for every budget! Yes, even you!

But…Mom really is worth it!  Trust me!  You don’t want to wait til the last minute and miss the good sales!  As I always say…Spend more on the gift, not the overnight shipping!  ;)

What to get?  That might seem like a tough question, but it’s really not.  Of course everyone has their tastes, that’s a given.  I’ve found that myself and most women I know, like versatile, multipurpose everything!  Oh, this one bottle of cleaner can be used on every surface in the house?  I’ll take two!

Double Drop Pearl Diamond Earrings

Not your Grandmas Pearls! (Plus a 2-Day code to SAVE)

What do you think when you hear someone mention a string of pearls?  Or pearl earrings?

I think most people, myself previously included, think of the old standard white pearls.  You know, the kind your mom and grandma used to wear!  If that’s what you still think, you are going to like this!

Did you know that pearls come in SEVERAL different natural colors?  Gold, black, brown, purple, pink…lots of colors.  Honestly, before I got into the jewelry business, I thought they came in white/cream colors only.  I think I might have seen different colors, but assumed they were dyed…or maybe I didn’t care enough to know because, quite frankly, I thought they were boring!
Wrong!  Let me tell you!  These ain’t your grandmas pearls!

I think it’s fascinating that pearls are the only gemstone that are made from a living creature. That in itself is worth mentioning.  In it’s own paragraph!

Now, I’m not going to get all technical, and tell you about freshwater versus cultured, how to clean them and the different shapes.  Really, I just want everyone to know how beautiful (because beautiful things are my thing) and fun pearls can be.  If you really want to know all that, though, you can click HERE to read all about them on our website!
