How to buy a ruby, you ask. Ruby, the red colored corundum (mineral name of sapphire), is one of the most valuable gemstones in the world. In classic literature rubies are used to compare very valuable things to.
Rubies are valued based on origin, color and clarity. A very valuable ruby would be accompanied by a grading report from the American Gemological Laboratory or the Gemological Institute of America stating the origin to be Burma and the color to be even and untreated or heated.
Rubies are also mined in other parts of the world. However, the most valuable come from Burma also known as Myanmar.
Like everything else, in rubies, you get what you pay for. The trick is knowing what you are getting and trusting the people selling it to you. Since rubies are not graded using standard color scales or clarity grading, it is almost impossible to buy a ruby sight unseen.
We always recommend that you get a laboratory grading report and that if you are buying a top of the line ruby, the report states its origin, color, and treatment.
Heat treatment of rubies is very common as this improves color and clarity. Very many beautiful rubies are heat treated and as such have value.
