Introducing Our Birthstone Collection – July is RUBIES

Breen’s Florist has begun to take a new approach to birthdays by creating beautiful works of art based on the birthstones of the month. July’s birthstone is the Ruby and beautiful red flowers are used to create a “rubitastic” arrangement for those July babies.

Our deep red Explorer roses and the fun red gerbera daisies are the featured flowers in our “Rubies” arrangement. We have accented the arrangement with red alstromeria and a few mini carnations with a bracelet of eucalyptus for some exciting aroma.

This arrangement will only be available for delivery July 1st through July 31st and can be delivered throughout Houston and surrounding areas. It is the perfect way to celebrate those July birthdays.

Rubies, the birthstone of July, are considered the king of gems and represent love, health and wisdom. It was believed wearing a fine red Ruby bestowed good fortune on its owner. A Ruby is the most valuable gemstone and its value increases based on its color and quality. This goes hand in hand with the red rose which is also considered to be the king of flowers.

The July birthstone, Ruby and the red rose are a match made in heaven.
