Ruby

RUBY - one of the most valuable of all gemstones is the birthstone for the month of July.
The name comes from the Latin word meaning red. Unlike the enormous gems seen in museums and Royal collections, rubies available on the market today are of a more modest size. A 3-4 carat ruby, if of fine quality, is a rare and very expensive gem. Next to diamond, ruby and sapphire (both corundum) is the hardest mineral known and is very compact and dense. As a result, rubies and sapphires are tough and relatively scratch-resistant. That's why, in addition to their beauty, ruby or sapphire is one of the best of all jewelry stones.

*Burmese Rubies:
All our BURMESE RUBIES are from old stock, imported to the US in the 1980’s and 1990’s, long before import restrictions were imposed in 2003. We operate in full compliance with the “Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act” of 2003 and the “JADE Act” of 2008. (www.treasury.gov/resource-center/faqs/Sanctions/Pages/answer.aspx#269)
However, PayPal policy prohibits use of their services for purchase or sale of any rubies from Burma regardless of date of importation. If you would like to purchase one of our old-stock Burmese rubies, please use an alternate method of payment. After these stones are gone from our inventory, they are gone for good.
Ruby Treatments: Where "Heat" enhancement is indicated, this refers to heat only or possibly heat with minor fissure healing, a permanent process. We absolutely do NOT sell glass filled rubies!

NOTE: Stones on this page were photographed under 5000 Kelvin "daylight" lighting.
For maximum color accuracy, descriptions were made in north-facing natural daylight,
indoors, between 11am-2pm, at 32.89°N latitude.

COLOR: Wherever possible, a similar Pantone Color Card number has been used, NOT the Pantone colors online,
which necessarily use RGB approximations, are grayer, and not at all the same.
Since color is so subjective to lighting conditions, and light is in turn subjective to location,
descriptions and pictures are intended to give a general idea of actual color.
To know what these stones really look like, there is no substitute for seeing them in person.
