It’s Women’s Month!

Happy Women’s Month rubies♥︎

August is Women’s Month and it’s a very important month for us because it gives us even more reasons to celebrate our beautiful rubies. With everything that has been going on this year, it is so important for us to look within this month, lift each other up and support one another.

As Queen B said, “WHO RUN THE WORLD? – GIRLS!” With the current uncertainty that this year has brought we thought we would bring some positive light on women supporting women, in our true ruby fashion, by helping each other! #riseupbeautifulyou

What better way to convey how women can support each other through the #challengeaccepted movement that has gone viral over the past few days.

So, what is this #challengeaccepted movement all about?

This movement is purely to spread awareness of issues that are often left in the dark. Currently, the focus has been on female empowerment and with this, in every country throughout the world, this challenge means something different to each woman. For example, in Turkey, this campaign is used to spread awareness of femicide whereas in other countries it’s used to show strength and support to various female-focused communities.

How does it work, you ask? You can post a black & white image of yourself on social media, #challengeaccepted and tag your women support system to also take part in the movement.


If you are looking to support a few local women-run business during the month of August to tie in with our women’s month celebration. Keep an eye out for these businesses below:

    What I really love about being a woman is the ability to nurture, the strength and ability to stand up when everything is going wrong. Without women the world will collapse. rubybox #rubygems #riseupbeautifulyou

    What I love about being a Woman, woman of all nations, colur and race are beautiful and that is known but most importantly women know that they are beautiful beyond measures and that they can face anything and everything that comes their way without fail. A woman knows when they are not appropriated and valued but that doesn’t stop them from being the woman they are. Women are the most important creation of earth they are able to bring life into the world countless times their love goes deeper than anything. Woman are Rocks mountains that can be shaken but never broken. #womanRise#womanlove#womanprotect

      Being a Woman means being a mother to a nation. It means having the ability to be selfless and yet courageous. Generous, strong and being a pillar to any one, who needs a shoulder.
      It means standing up for a girl next to you who doesn’t have a voice and taking a stand to uplift yourself while carrying others on your strong shoulders. Being a Woman simply means Being a Shero.💌💐 #challengeaccepted

    I am given a task to be a builder a protector a provider a teacher to my kids. The affection I have to those that I care for. My strength to strive.

    I love being a strong, confident woman and that’s never going to change. Women deal with a lot of stuff on an everyday basis, but rather than tearing us down, it just makes us stronger. We know how to overcome adversity, and we do it well. What I love most about being a woman is being ME #rubybox #riseupbeautifulyou

    Phenomenal Woman
    Pretty women wonder where my secret lies.
    I’m not cute or built to suit a fashion model’s size
    But when I start to tell them,
    They think I’m telling lies.
    I say,
    It’s in the reach of my arms,
    The span of my hips,
    The stride of my step,
    The curl of my lips.
    I’m a woman
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.

    I walk into a room
    Just as cool as you please,
    And to a man,
    The fellows stand or
    Fall down on their knees.
    Then they swarm around me,
    A hive of honey bees.
    I say,
    It’s the fire in my eyes,
    And the flash of my teeth,
    The swing in my waist,
    And the joy in my feet.
    I’m a woman

    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.

    Men themselves have wondered
    What they see in me.
    They try so much
    But they can’t touch
    My inner mystery.
    When I try to show them,
    They say they still can’t see.
    I say,
    It’s in the arch of my back,
    The sun of my smile,
    The ride of my breasts,
    The grace of my style.
    I’m a woman
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.

    Now you understand
    Just why my head’s not bowed.
    I don’t shout or jump about
    Or have to talk real loud.
    When you see me passing,
    It ought to make you proud.
    I say,
    It’s in the click of my heels,
    The bend of my hair,
    the palm of my hand,
    The need for my care.
    ’Cause I’m a woman
    Phenomenal woman,
    That’s me.
