Value of Burmese Rubies


#1

Hi, my first post. I’m a gemology student in Australia.
Just curious, how much would a 5 carat Burmese Ruby be worth? I can seem to find any recent sale data anywhere.


#2

If unheated and good color, it will be very high price… You can get some information in Christie’s Auctions or Sotheby’s Auctions.

Go for highest above 3 carats and pure clarity so 5 times $17 000 its only a estimate but should give u an idea where you are


#6

Realy no one else can can make an estimated valuation its not that hard

Thanks everyone.
I was wondering if it was worthwhile having it recut as it has a nasty chip to the table/ girdle. It also has a feather through the centre so fingers crossed when I see the gem cutter it is salavagable. It’s currently 6.19 carats and I’ve figured that keeping it above 5 carats is desirable.
