Ruby chosen for Gemstone Each Month Series (GEMS) December

by JewelStruck on Dec.03, 2009, under GEMS

Here comes our first announcement for December month. Considering suggestions by all of you, we have chosen Ruby for Gemstone Each Month Series this month.  We had options of choosing a birthstone again too, but we wanted to contribute towards the fight against HIV/AIDS.  As december is  HIV/AIDS awareness month, and its been symbolized with RED. Chossing ruby for GEMS December made only sense. HOPE you will help us spread the word :-)
