AGL offers 2 options of unmounted and mounted stones but I would call to verify that being mounted wouldn’t interfere with the full analysis if I wanted the prestige full grading report. Maybe one of the pros could comment on what would be best or if they think it’s beneficial if I already have a GIA report? @denverappraiser @Rockdiamond @Karl_K @oldminer

Waste of money you allready have a gia report.

Ohhhh you did!!! Do tell more!!! Pretty please!!! :bigsmile:
its very heavily based on someone else ring (of course they are aware) so I’ve chosen to respectfully keep it out of sight until after theirs. But I will!

Thank you! Appreciate you responding :)

So there’s no additional information that AGL would provide on color or degree of enhancement (heat in this case) that would be more valuable?

not an expert-
But if I wanted to see specifically AGL’s description on color /tone that would be ‘worth to pay ’ it to me just for my own curiousness. Don’t they do that?
not to make me like it more, or like it less from what they say though!

not in my opinion.
Its not a collector stone that duel reports would add value.

Yes, but I believe the color description is only part of their full report which costs $445...just identification and enhancement is muuuch less.

I go away for a couple of days and BAM! holy grail ruby happens:-o.
I am going to covet this ring for all time. It's going to be a burden, *squints eyes* but I'll make do.
I love it so much I want to throw something. I will also need many more pictures in all lighting and outside, or I might cry.

Great photos! I almost thought the sapphire ring was a brooch in the first photo!
Thank you!!! It actually used to be so great eye! Before I even found PS I found this lovely (former) brooch at a small jewelry shop and asked if they could convert it to a ring and he happened to have an antique shank also in platinum that he soldered to it!

This is officially my favorite post of the year. Now I want to get my own ruby re-set. Thought I was over clusters. I guess not.....On my third trip to England I kept casing them in jewelers' windows all over the country. It was 1972 and colored engagement rings were in fashion. They still make me think of romance in the countryside.

Such an absolutely beautiful ring, @ac117 The colour of the ruby is perfect, a wonderful, luscious real red.
Thanks!! I must say the color is really what made me fall in love with it! Red is my favorite color and this shade just makes me so happy every time I look at it!

Wow, that is so stunning. It looks like it was meant to be yours
Thanks so much!! :bigsmile:
