Red is for Passion

Red is such a passionate color. It is filled with fire and heat. It  makes a statement no matter where it is used, and as a color in a piece of jewelry, it demands attention. Lucky for us, there are a number of red gemstones that can add fire and passion to our designs.

Red Diamonds - Yes, there are some really red diamonds! Of course, it is very rare and not something that you see in normal jewelry.

Red Beryl - Usually found in Utah or New Mexico, this red stone is another rare piece of gem. In case you are interested, Beryl is the gemstone of the sign of Scorpio.

Ruby - Another gemstone, but much more commonly found is graded on the depth of its red color. It is the birthstone of Capricorn and December babies. It is also associated with those born in July.


Carnelian - A favorite of those who like to work with chalcedony stones. Carnelian is a soft rock and is associated with August babies.


Of course, red is also found in jasper, agates and other more common gems and stones.
