Brooches are making a comeback! Gone are the days where brooches were only worn by little old ladies in their Sunday best. Now, there are so many different creative ways to wear a brooch! This ruby brooch looks gorgeous securely pinned to the lapel of a blazer, but our favorite way to wear it is as a pendant. All you have to do clasp the pin shut, slip a chain through, and voilà! It’s now a stunning ruby flower pendant! This is the perfect July birthstone gift for anyone who enjoys playing around with creative expression.
Ruby & Diamond Halo Necklace
Bigger isn’t always better. Sometimes something sweet and simple can be more meaningful than something grand and extravagant.

Don’t worry, gentlemen, we didn’t forget about you! Jewelry is just as much for men as it is for women; if you’ve got the confidence, go ahead and rock it. Although, some men don’t wear much jewelry, so opt for something that won’t just sit in the box. Cufflinks aren’t your typical every day wear kind of jewelry, which makes them a great choice as a men’s birthday gift. Every time he dresses up a little bit and puts on a suit, he’ll think of you when he completes his look with these swanky yellow gold ruby cufflinks.
