Heart Shape Ruby Gems
Ruby is without doubt one of the most valuable gemstones, which has long been famed for remarkable brilliance, vitreous luster and excellent durability, ruby is indeed one of the most important gemstones of all time. In fact, throughout most of history, all red gemstones were thought to be ruby. Ruby is a member of the corundum family, more specifically, it is a red gem-quality variety of corundum. All other colors of corundum are traded as sapphire. Although sapphire is considered rare, red ruby is even rarer. Ruby has a hardness of 9 on the Mohs scale, making it the second hardest natural material known to man. Ruby, along with sapphire, emerald and diamond, is classified as one of the 'precious four gems'.

Ruby gemstones can be found in various shapes and cutting styles, including round shapes, oval shapes, cushion shapes, pear shapes, trillion shapes and fancy heart shapes. Heart-shaped gemstones are the perfect shape for those looking for romantic gemstones for jewelry. Ruby hearts are especially rare due to ruby being incredibly rare to begin with. Like other shapes, heart-shaped rubies can be found with various cut-styles, including plain-cut cabochons as well as faceted gems. Most heart-shaped rubies are mixed-cut, featuring angular brilliant-cut facets with rectangular step-cut facets. Fine quality red ruby hearts can be very expensive, especially untreated ruby or heat-only ruby. For those shopping on a smaller budget, fracture-filled rubies hearts are very affordable, but these should not be recut, repolished or repaired. This may not be an issue though, considering the costs to repair a damaged ruby would exceed the costs of replacing it altogether. When replacing gemstones, it's best to select gemstones by size (in millimeters), rather than weight. This is because a 1 carat ruby can range in size depending on its exact proportions.

Almost all rubies will exhibit secondary colors other than red. The most common combinations include pinkish-red, orangey-red, purplish-red, bluish-red and brownish-red. Most experts would agree that good quality rubies should exhibit a medium to medium-dark tone. Today, sources for fine ruby gemstones include Afghanistan, Australia, Brazil, Burma (Myanmar) Cambodia, India, Madagascar, Malawi, Mozambique, Nepal, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Tanzania, Thailand, the United States and Vietnam.

In my 20's I imported gemstones. I decided to try it again, for gifts. I found GemSelect; studied their website; talked with them and decided to make a purchase.

I would recommend GEMSELECT based upon the variety of gems. Gems that i didn't expect to even be apart of the selection and it gave me more options. Options in which played a key role in finding the right gem. Its always good to have options especially when trying to formulate a good piece of art work that has uniqueness. Which ultimately captures costumers eye appeal.

Gemselect is o.k the prices are pretty good, but the shipping prices really suck, one time I order from them and order got lost or never came, but they were good about fixing the problem and rectifying the situation, the stones and good, and the ones that come in the mail, look just as pictured on the website, or all it's not bad and its were I go to get my stones.

Size and Weight

Gems are always measured in Millimeter (mm)

Dimensions are given as;
length x width x depth,
except for round stones which are;
diameter x depth

Select gems by size, not by weight!
Gem varieties vary in density, so carat weight is not a good indication of size

Note: 1ct = 0.2g
