IT IS COMMON PRACTICE IN THE RUBY INDUSTRY TO HEAT TREAT AND GLASS FILL FRACTURE LINES. WE TREAT OUR RUBIES BUT WE DO NOT HEAVILY GLASS FILL OUR RUBIES, ONLY RUBIES WITH FRACTURE LINES DO WE GLASS TREATMENT. THE GEM OF LOVE. A VARIETY OF MINING AREAS PRODUCE A GREAT DIVERSITY OF RED SHADES. THE MONGOK VALLEY IN BURMA IS FAMOUS FOR ITS ‘PIGEON BLOOD’ OR PINK RED COLOUR. FROM THAILAND AND CAMBODIA IS A STRONG DARK RED. ACCORDING TO ANCIENT LORE, MANY BELIEVE THAT MYSTICAL POWERS LIE WITHIN THIS INTENSELY COLOURED RED GEM. IT INTENSIFIES EMOTIONS OF LOVE, PASSION, COURAGE AND CONFIDENCE. A RUBY ENGAGEMENT RING IS GIVEN TO EXPRESS PASSION AND A PROMISE OF THE HEART. FURTHERMORE THE WEARING OF A RUBY ASSURES A LIFE LIVED IN PEACE. THE RICHNESS OF THE COLOUR, THE BRILLIANCE OF THE REFLECTED LIGHT AND THE CLARITY OF THE GEM DETERMINE THE QUALITY OF A RUBY.

 

PICTURES ARE NOT  ENHANCED

We DO NOT enhance our pictures, pictures are taken under normal light and

our pictures expose more scratches and blemishes in these pictures than in our hand.

If we can see no blemishes from a foot away in our hand we term the Ruby as

EYE CLEAN . 

Many sites show rubies clean and vvs which is really very hard to find. Mining these

rubies as you are aware most are glass filled if vvs and cheap, so please be informed.

Wearability is important and we consider fracture filled rubies as strong and wearable

But you should avoid heavily glass filled cheap rubies as wearability and strength is effected.

We understand rubies and prefer to sell genuine and inform buyers that Rubies should be

better in hand than in our pictures. Please consider our Rubies
