by Rubybrick » Apr 25, 2019 fellow colored gem lover and ruby owners. How important is an actual ruby for you? What are your thoughts on the ruby like gems? I didn’t really care too much for rubies before, but I recently started to really love my moms ring shown here, which I am pretty sure is a Burmese ruby, it kind of has a understated charm being somewhat sleepy. But a the same time I am not sure the premium is “worth” it per se. I am looking for one in the 6.5mm-7mm range so that will make a difference in price.. thoughts?
