by princessre » Dec 16, 2011 Hi All, So I am in love with this heart-shaped ruby necklace. It is supposed to be a 5 carat pigeon's blood ruby.....Do you like it? I just bought a big diamond ring, so am not feeling like I want to pony up huge $$. I was wondering if you think it would be possible to achieve this look with a red red spinel? Would spinel be just as nice as a ruby in this setting? I posted before, and looked all over the suggested websites. The only possibility was like $35k or around that range....How else can I approach the search? Do I have to email each vendor individually to see if they have a piece of rough they can cut into such a stone? Or perhaps they do not list all their inventory? Thanks for any help!!
