Why should I sell ruby now? (Or sell emerald or sell sapphire)
Worldwide the availability of quality gemstones is at an all-time low plus the demand for quality gemstones is at a record high. The result is they are now paying record prices.
Sell ruby: Check out what you have, perhaps there is an antique piece you inherited. Rubies remain one of the most sought-after gemstones by aristocracy & the upper classes. As a symbol of passion desire for rubies remains high.
Sell sapphire: Sapphires are perennially popular as evidenced by the choice Princess Diana’s engagement ring ( and then Kate Middleton’s). It remains a popular gemstone due to its symbol of healing. Whether a new or older item it is worth getting your sapphires appraised.
Sell Emerald: Emeralds are the most highly valued gemstone ( aside from diamonds) and are the rarest gemstone. Emeralds are evaluated by their colour over clarity. Due to their high resale value it makes sense to get your emeralds appraised – you may be pleasantly surprised!

A guide on quality when you are selling ruby, emerald or sapphire.
Like most things, not all rubies, emeralds or sapphires are created equal!
Modern pieces, particularly from larger jewellery retail chains, can often be man-made and as such have no or little value. We often see gemstones with treatments such as lead and glass fills, which are undesirable when reselling.
Created emeralds and sapphires, that are grown in the laboratory are also of little value when reselling.
Older or antique pieces can often see higher quality, although they also feature their fair share of fakes or low-quality gemstones.
The best thing to do it to book in for a pre-appraisal of your piece.
