not what you see on tvThis is reserve quality? I expected a few nice rubys. I received poor color and very small. Sent back February 19, 2013
from Marysville, CA, USA
Purchased as a gift: No, it is not a gift.
Small & fairly light in colorI was extremely excited about this purchase! Finding untreated rubies, even small ones, is no easy task & very expensive! I was a little disappointed to find all but one stone would be considered accent stone size & mostly pear shape! The biggest disappointment was the color of the gemstones. At least 4 of the 13 stones I received I would classify as pink sapphire. They are very, very light baby pink color. I will keep the parcel since untreated pink sapphire is also fairly rare, though not as rare as untreated ruby! March 05, 2013
