Pretty but not true redI guess I am spoiled on those Burma rubies in the wee hours and JTV's ravishing red spinels. This one just did not do it for me. It looks more like a really fine rubellite tourmaline than a ruby. I was looking for that ruby red and just did not find it in this particular lab created gem. I am keeping it because the stone is really exceptional in cut and clarity, just not the color I was looking for. December 28, 2014

Bargain rubiesFor the price, these can't be beat. Buy a bowlful and give them away like candy. December 28, 2011
