Do you have a July birthday or a friend to treat this month? Here we give you ideas for July birthstone gifts. Paint the town red with bright ruby tones to celebrate.

But if you don't have the cash to splash on genuine rubies, there are plenty of gorgeous alternatives to celebrate a July birthday. Or simply shine bright with red tones in the Summer holiday season.

Ruby red July birthstone

Rubies are considered the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom. What more could you want in life?

The July birthstone can also stir the imagination. Some believe that wearing a fine Ruby bestows good fortune on the owner.

Ruby combines beautifully with diamond for a stunning contrast. These Brown & Newirth earrings are the perfect gift for someone special with a July birthday.

But since Rubies are valuable precious stones, stunning alternatives include red zirconia or Swarovski crystal.

Or if red is not their colour, go for a zodiac gift. Here are some ideas for July birthstone and birthday treats!

Sparkle with Sif Jakobs

Sif Jakobs has been known for some years for her stunning Sterling Silver and white or black zirconia jewellery. However in recent years she has introduced more colour to her collection.

We love the red zirconia Ellera Earrings and Valiano Bangle. These pieces feature 18ct yellow gold plating for a touch of luxury. Red and gold combine beautifully for a regal but on-trend look.

Sif Jakobs Jewellery

Sif Jakobs Jewellery is known for its affordable yet luxurious designs.

Crafted in sterling silver and featuring sparkling zirconia, Sif Jakobs Jewellery is both high quality and easy on the budget.

Ruby and diamond designs

This stunning ruby and diamond ring from Brown & Newirth will definitely set the heart of your loved one on fire. With channel set round brilliant rubies and baguette diamonds, it is crafted in 18ct white gold.

The combination of round and baguette cuts gives a contrast that catches the eye. Symbolising eternal love, the eternity ring is a wonderful gift for an anniversary or birthday.

The rubies stand out against the diamond and silvery tones, creating an eye-catching design.

With Brown & Newirth you can choose from a large range of designs and have a special ring handcrafted to order here in the UK.

Thomas Sabo Together Collection

If you are looking for a more affordable token of love, go no further than the Thomas Sabo Together Range in rose gold plated Sterling Silver adorned with synthetic red corundum to give a deep red look of rubies, without the price tag!

The deep red has slightly more pink tone than natural ruby, which gives a playful and romantic look.

Thomas Sabo Together Heart

There are also stunning Thomas Sabo charm designs in red.

The great thing about a Thomas Sabo charm bracelet is that it looks equally stylish when worn alone, with just one charm, or with a full collection of charms.

Or as a fun gift for a friend, try cute designs in red from Swarovski. A piece of Swarovski jewellery or crystal incorporating red tones is a perfect for the July birthday girl.
