Happy Birthday July babies! I, too, fall under this category! It is no secret that I am not the biggest fan of my birthstone (especially when there are so many other stunning options out there!) but I have started to embrace my birthstone. I shied away from this stone for a long time because of its pink-ish undertones and even today I tend to favor the more deep garnet-like or blood red rubies. But I have to admit there is something to these red rubies set with seed pearls in a yellow gold mount that is definitely my style!
