Ruby is a gemstone whose color can vary from pink to blood red in color and is made of the mineral corundum which is aluminum oxide.
One of the elements in a ruby is chromium, the main ingredient responsible for the red color.
The name "ruby" comes from the Latin word "ruber" which means red. And, along with diamond, emerald, and sapphire, it is considered one of the four precious stones.
The value of a Ruby is determined by its color, size, clarity, and cut.
The more red the better! The darkest is called blood-red or pigeon blood, and they're the brightest and most valuable rubies.
A ruby's clarity is the second most important factor towards its value. On Diamonds, a clear stone will be considered a premium, but rubies that are clear of any needle like rutile inclusions likely indicate that the stone has been treated.
The weight is also a very important factor in determining the price of the stone. The most expensive ruby is the Sunrise Ruby, which was sold for over $30 Million in May of 2015. The Sunrise Ruby was 25.59 carat (5.1 gr).
Before coming to one of our Sportsmans Pawn Shops, it is important to have your homework done
and realize what you have. If you know from who, where, and when you got your jewelry,
there is a big chance you can collect proper information about your ruby.
Jewelry stores do very well at keeping records... While the characteristic estimation of your precious
rubies may have little to do with the amount you paid, the store can still give you significant information
on the material, quality, weight, and so on.
In the event you're not certain where it was acquired, you can get information on your accessory
from a local jewelery store.
If you're not sure whether you can part with your ruby jewel, you can settle on a pawn loan instead of doing a straight sale.
Simply take your ruby ring, necklace, earrings, etc. to one of our pawn shops in Salt Lake and get an all-money credit for 30-60 days. After the advance time frame is over, you can choose whether to keep the cash and disregard the accessory, or give back the cash (with premium) and get your jewelry back.
Our pawn shops are open Monday - Saturday!
