    Buying this ruby (1.1ct antique natural unheated Burmese)?

    From the pinkness in the picture I dont think you would get a respectable lab in the states to call that a Ruby, it would come back pink sapphire. Alot of places, Thai land and Ceylon will call a pinker stone a ruby but at GIA or AGL you would get a call of pink sapphire

    What would YOU do? - return or keep?

    Presidium should never be used to be the deciding factor on what a gemstone is are is not, I would check R.I first also Aqua can also be grown in mass amounts through the hydrothermal method. I would send it to a GG if not GIA before starting a war with someone on a return.

    What info “should” sellers disclose

    As much as he knows, from treatment to wear it came from, and if he does not know he says he does not know, if your going to spend real money on a gemstone or a ring a report from someplace like GIA is cheap and will provide the piece of mind needed.

    Yellow Sapphire - Is This a Good Deal??

    First off stunning yellow sapphire, Labs like GIA and AGL have the ability to detect B.E. you are correct about assuming its B.E at those colors with out a lab report. Also if it has a pre 1999 cert it wont be B.E due to the fact B.E did not come around until around 2000. Below is a 2.74 ct...
