[Looking for] High quality synthetic


#1

Hi, I need to buy a high quality synthetic ruby, trilliant cut. I’m
looking for lab corundum, nice color and cut. Anyone have any
recommended vendors?

Thanks,

J.O. Crystals, makers of Ramaura Ruby, arguably the finest synthetic
ruby in the world (no financial connection but I know the principals
and they’re great people, as is their product, the only synthetic
stone to be in the Smithsonian): www.ramaura.com

Hello Darcy Ramaura Ruby is the best synthetic ruby that I have seen.
It is made by the J. O. Crystal Company.

J. O. Crystal Co., Inc. http://www.ramaura.com/ 1493 Cota Ave. Long
Beach, CA 90813 Phone 1-800 289-0736

Usual disclaimer applies. There is a picture of a ruby and diamond
pendant in the archive section of my site. I used on of their trilliant
cut 8 mm stones in this piece.

Beth, I’ve used both the Ramaura product and Chatham. Personally, I
far prefer the Chatham material. Every timer I purchased something
from Ramaura I had to return it because the cutting was so poor. I
don’t wnat to pay for extra weight deep stones. I have a background
in cutting and feel Chatham’s work is superior. Infact, thetbwill
custom cut to any shape or size for you. I have no financial
connection with either. My 2 cents.
