I''m just starting out looking for a 1.5-2.5 carat (I think) ruby engagement ring and would like to go check them out in person. Is there a jewler/dealer in or near New York city that specializes in rubies? I''d like to find someone who has both heated and unheated rubies so I can compare them. From what I''ve read unheated rubies are very rare and it is hard to tell definitively if a ruby has been heated. Is it even worth looking for an unheated ruby?
Thanks in advance for your help -- other than what I''ve read on pricescope I''m 100% clueless about this whole process.
