July Birthstone Jewelry

About July Birthstone Jewelry

Ruby, the star of July birthstone jewelry, is a gemstone that has been revered since ancient times as a symbol for passion, protection, and prosperity. This gem’s name comes from the Latin word for red. While precious rubies have been among the most highly-prized of gemstones, glass stones and beads in this rich color have been used to create beautiful costume jewelry for centuries. Whether you want to complement a red outfit or wish to add a splash of drama to an ensemble in other colors, you’ll find a fine selection of ruby necklaces, bracelets, earrings and brooches here.

  • Aurora borealis rhinestone brooch w/ruby bead flowers
    Brooch back
    USD$495.00

    Ruby & Diamanté Brooch by Elsa Schiaparelli

    , ,
    This aurora borealis rhinestone brooch features a trio of flowers. Clusters of ruby-glass beads form the centers that sit atop the rhinestone petals. In person, this piece looks like a display of fireworks – the iridescence of the navettes is hard to capture in photos. The setting of this 1950s Elsa Schiaparelli jewel is silver-tone metal with a roll-over safety clasp. Even the back of the brooch is textured! With this statement piece, all you need to complete your jewelry accessories is a pair of faux or real diamond stud earrings. If black and white is more to your taste, scroll down to see the same design in that color combination.

    Ruby & Sterling Flower Brooch by Hess-Appel

    , ,
    This vintage ruby brooch is a wonderful statement piece that’s just right for today’s style. A large, beautifully-faceted, cushion-cut ruby-glass flower stands tall with curled sterling silver leaves and stem. The size and gracefulness are hallmarks of the 1940s Retro Modern style. This piece by Hess-Appel is signed with their Jollé trademark (without the accent, which was used only in their advertisements). This tall jewel closes with a roll-over safety clasp. You can easily remove the age-appropriate patina if you wish.

  • 1920s pendant necklace with rectangular, ruby-glass stones
    Ruby Art Deco pendant
    USD$175.00

    Ruby 1920s Pendant Necklace with Chicklets

    , ,
    This delicate 1920s pendant necklace is another variation of the chicklet-style so popular in the Art Deco era. This piece has a beautifully-faceted, rectangular ruby-glass stone suspended from a smaller, oblong-shaped stone along with three chicklets on each side of the chain closest to the center drop. The metal is silver-tone and unmarked. This necklace closes with a spring-ring clasp. I don’t usually like pendants, but this one is special! It’s perfect for a v-neckline.

  • Miriam Haskell brooch (clip) with ruby glass beads & rondelles
    Close-up view of Miriam Haskell brooch/clip
    USD$495.00

    Ruby Bead & Rondelle 1940s Miriam Haskell Brooch/Clip

    , ,
    This Miriam Haskell brooch, which is also a dress clip, has deep-red glass beads separated by rondelles and small flat beads in silver metal findings. A World War II-style dress clip is attached to a pierced plastic back. Frank Hess used this Machine Age-style in other designs. (Scroll down to see a similar pair of earrings.) I bought this piece from Haskell expert Cathy Gordon, who indicated that the pin stem was probably added to the dress clip at a later date. In addition to wearing this piece as a clip or brooch, you can wear it as a pendant on a black cord (shown in the last photo) or on a silver or white-gold chain. The 17" black cord shown is included with this purchase.

  • Pinwheel brooch of ruby-glass beads & diamante
    Close-up view of brooch front
    USD$225.00

    Ruby Bead & Rondelle French Pinwheel Brooch

    , ,
    This pinwheel brooch has ruby-glass beads wired in a spiral and adorned with channels of diamanté. A large ruby-glass bead sits on top. Frank Hess designed a nearly identical dress clip for Miriam Haskell circa 1940, but his had diamanté only on the front. This brooch has them on both sides and closes with a trombone clasp on a filigree back. Real or faux diamond ear studs are the perfect accompaniment for this charming French jewel.

    Ruby Bead, Emerald Leaf & Brass Dangling Bracelet

    , ,
    This emerald and ruby bead bracelet has glass beads intertwined with green-pressed-glass leaves, all dangling from a brass-link chain. It closes with an old-style spring-ring clasp. The design reminds me of a popular Art Deco motif – bunches of grapes. This 1920s bracelet is probably European in origin. A fun piece!

    Ruby, Diamanté & Gold Circle Pin & Earrings Set

    , , ,
    This vintage circle pin is one of many designed by Marcel Boucher in the 1950s. This lovely example of his work comes with earrings. The gold-plated open-circle brooch is embellished with an arrow of pavé topped with ruby-glass baguettes. The closed-circle ear clips are embellished with the same stones in a leaf-like setting. Perhaps these pieces were not originally a set. (The brooch is unmarked; the earrings have no inventory number.) Even so, they look great together!

    Ruby, Diamanté & Vermeil Sterling 1940s Trifari Bracelet
