Anyone know anything about rubies?
Advertisement
Here is the deal. My wife inherited a big ruby from her mother. Her mother originally bought it in the Philippines in 1935 when she was a young girl. It is dark blood red in color, and rectangle shaped 1/4" x 1/2" and 1/4" thick. It's mounted on a 24K gold band and around the ruby is 25 small diamonds. Her mom always kept it in her jewelry box, and rarely wore it. We are thinking of taking it to a jeweler to be appraised, but have no idea what its worth. When we do take it to the jeweler, we don't want to let it out of our sight.
Thanks for any information.

Yes, take it to certified gemologists, not letting it out of your sight. Some jewelers have been known to swap stones.

Jhikpghf

Take detailed photos of the ring and put items in the photos that can verify size like a pencil or a quarter or better yet a micrometer . Before you take it anywhere.

Only go to high end jewelry shop(s). Ask them to keep the gem in your line of sight. Let them clean the ring but make sure you watch the process. Be alert to anything strange.

This same thread was done about a year ago. Word for word.

As stated then, take it to be appraised.

If I see this again...it will be deleted.

RE: Anyone know anything about rubies?
It is pretty rare for a jeweler to "switch" your stones. In more than 20 years, I have never heard of it happening in real life. Everyone has a friend of a friend story, and every one I have checked on turned out to be bullshit.

The likelihood that a jeweler has a stone he *could* switch is also very small when your stone is unusual.

ANYONE WHO SAYS THEY WONT LET A STONE OUT OF THEIR SIGHT WILL BE IMMEDIATELY AND PERMANENTLY REMOVED FROM MY STORE. IF YOU DON'T TRUST YOUR JEWELER, GO TO ONE YOU DO TRUST.

90% of the time, when a customer has a "large ruby," which they always insist is authentic, it will be one of three things:

1. A garnet.
2. A synthetic.
3. A dyed white sapphire that has been heated and glass filled.

A genuine ruby is one of the most valuable of gems, but only if it is actually genuine. There are a lot of ways in which you might be disappointed.

The most reliable and trustworthy way to determine the authenticity of your gem is to send it to GIA in New York or Carlsbad, and pay their $160 fee. You will get a gem lab report, which you can then take to a jeweler for an appraisal which should run about $60 more.

from 0-100 % how sure would you put that on the "word for word" part of that. Just curious for a thought I'm having.
