Certified Gemstones

We have several thousand fine quality colored gemstones for sale, many of which are unique, one of a kind or perhaps are unusual for some reason. Very few have been certed; frequently, there is no reason. We stand behind our gemstones and have a 100% Customer Satisfaction Guarantee (7 days) and a LIFETIME GUARANTEE - see our policies page: Guarantee

Just because a gemstone in our inventory is not certed, actually has no reflection on the quality. Some of our gemstones were purchased already with certs, or we were traveling abroad and felt more comfortable obtaining a cert. Perhaps we were told it was unheated and we wanted to do a check upon our return from abroad (note that regardless if it were heated or not heated, we would be keeping it - heating is standard in the trade for certain gemtones, and we accept that as long as that is all that was done; there are also some purists or collectors who seek non-heated gemstones). We have also certed a few gems because we wanted another opinion on whether a gemstone was to perhaps be called a Ruby vs. a Sapphire (Pink, Magenta, Fuchsia, etc.). Many times we purchase as Ruby and sell as Sapphire (yes, Ruby and Sapphire are the same gemstone, the mineral Corundum, it is just the percentage of red that causes the differentiation. Europe and Asia identify Ruby as what most Americans in the business would call Sapphire.

A - 2.64ct Orangy Pink Oval Sapphire, UNHEATED Note the color description - the color description of a Padparadscha. It was bought as a Pad, but we always sell as a Orangy Sapphire. It is a rather unique gemstone, in that under diffused daylight, it looks like a smoky pink, and then under incandescent, it is a bright lively reddish orange. Depending on the lights available, this seems to be a real color changer!) (egaj-11-37) $9,900

1.10ct Certed Demantoid Garnet
An over 1 carat Certifed Demantoid. A Clean, decent cut and of a green tourmaline, possibly yellowish green color Demantoid. Shows Dispersion under the right lights. Not a deep green like many of the Russian gems, but this is said to be Russian. Most likely, it is African. We are trying to get more information. The location may not be all that important, but the fact that it is a certified Demantoid is! This gem does contain Chromium as one would expect of a Demantoid, as it will display red flashes when viewed using a Chelsea Filter! (bkkol-08-08) $525

These pieces were designed by David Stanley, one of the first Americans working in a similar fashion to Munsteiner in Germany. These unique pieces were chosen from a few hundred pieces of David's work approximately 20 years ago. They were chosen based on the designs, keeping the customer and goldsmith in mind. Note that the citrine and amethyst pieces are separate pieces, and one can separate them with a bar of gold, diamonds, other gemstones or whatever the customer desires.

6.47ct Cuprian Mozambique Tourmaline
13.77x9.61x7.17mm Oval Bright Pink Mozambique Tourmaline weighing a whopping 6.47cts and containing Copper. Therefore, this is a Curpian Tourmaline similar to Paraiba and other bright neony Tourmalines from other localities. A number of smaller inclusions exist, but does not affect the brilliance or overall look of this gemstone. This is also to be expected of pink and red Tourmaline, not to mention Paraiba and the bright colors coming from Mozambique! Note that this color is a bright pink with maybe a hint of purple, and it does not brown out under incandescent light. For the most part, the color is consistent under a number of different light sources. (fgj-07-01)

certed ruby
Not often seen, here is an unheatd Ruby. The Winza Ruby coming out of Africa, is one of the few locations in the world that currently is being mined and 'may' not be heated. Most corundum (Sapphire and Ruby), is typcially heated as is pretty much 99% of Aquamarine and Tanzanite and many colors of Tourmaline are heated too. Other countries produce Ruby that may not require heating, but Winza is producing more of this material. As you can see from the cert, it is described as a purplish red, typical to have some sort of modifier associated with red in Ruby (note the certs from the same lab for our Burmese Rubies!). Under fluorescent lights, you can see slightly more purple, but under incandescent (which is best for Ruby), it is more of a pure red. Fine Rubys Continue to Rise in Price...! To have a nicely colored, mostly clean Ruby is a real treat if it hasn't experience heat! Approx 6.35X4.96X4.16mm (estrne-11-01) $4,500

certed ruby
A 2.14ct Fine Deep Red Ruby - photo does not do it justice. We have found that obtaining accurate colors of Ruby, Alexandrite and a few other gemstones is very difficult. Where else can you find this size, clarity, polish, sparkle, cutting, etc for under $10,000/ct ? Just finding the store that carries this quality is difficult, and we only know of two of the big names where you might find something similar... A well known local appraiser/gemologist and the owner of All That Glitters sat down to discuss a number of fine gemstones in the All That Glitters inventory; this being one of them. This Ruby POPS under incandescent light and is more subdued under fluorescent, which is what one would expect for Ruby. Approx 7.7x6.3x5.0mm (dbg-10-01) $14,124 (Currently at or below wholesale)

certed ruby
Certified as Purplish Red Ruby, this material is from Africa and is certed as having NO evidence of heat, which is quite rare today. There are many pairs of matched rounds and ovals here. The average weight is about 32pts each. Price per carat is $750, therefore an average matched pair would run about $480. Good matched pairs in Ruby are very difficult to find. This material is a nice rich red under incandescent lights, well cut, clean, NO Heat and are super all around! Photographed under fluorescent lights. (vpng-07-05p) (The wholesale price from a West Coast company, whose matched pairs are not as well cut as ours and theirs is heated, is over our currently asking price. Expect retail prices to be approximately double.)

We have sorted this out and matched them as best as possible. They have a really fine ruby red color under incandescent, which is where Ruby should be viewed. (Sapphire looks better under fluorescent - the Chromium within the Ruby "pops" under incandescent. We have the following pairs available:

1.07ct Oval Burmese Ruby. Great piece. Mostly clean as you can see from the photo. Color is a great Ruby Red. Certified - evidence of Heat but no evidence of fillers (which is rare). This is a fine example of Ruby and one would be hard pressed to find such a Ruby in any stores except those carrying high end fine gemstones.

Certified - evidence of Heat but no evidence of fillers (which is rare). This is a fine example of Ruby and one would be hard pressed to find such a Ruby in any stores except those carrying high end fine gemstones. This is a gemstone that we would have offered to Tiffanys and a few other stores, but they are currently not purchasing any material with the name Burma associated with it. Many gemstones come across the border illegally and by-pass the government. These gemstones therefore do not put money in to the pockets of a repressive government, but help those individuals who mine the material and are lucky enough to find and sell gemstones such as this.

This large Tanzanite has rarely seen the light of day since it's purchase back in about 1990. It has a certificate from Guild Laboratories in Los Angeles, CA, along with a photograph and with a retail price of $27,000 - that was back in 1991! . The very fine larger pieces are becoming quite scarce and prices are going up. We allowed a wholesale dealer to show this off on one trip and he has never had such reactions of - WOW - with any other gemstone he has shown over his many decades of selling gemstones! No photos can do this item ANY justice! The color glows with life similar to a Kashmir Sapphire. Other lights will show the color as having purple highlights. (rma-91-02#) $27,500
