Would like some advice on ruby drops

Hello All,

I know there are some experts in this group so I would like some
advice if possible.

I have a few ruby drops (top drilled, approx 45ct. each, opaque)
which I have had set by a jeweler by putting an 18K gold cap/cone on
top with a bail.

My first question is do you recommend hanging them on an 18k gold
chain, or, for a more modern look, on a black leather cord with gold
clasp. Could you recommed an online shop where I could buy these?

My second question is, how much do you think a ruby drop like I
described above is worth?

Thanks in advance for your advice.


Hi Isa,

I’ve had good experience buying chain by the foot at Rio Grande

They also sell other findings.

The price for Ruby varies a lot and depends on a variety of factors
that would require the stones to be seen by an expert in person. I
would take them to a reputable jeweller that has a Graduate
Gemologist on site and ask their opinion. They may charge you a
small fee, but may do it as a courtesy for you.

I hope this is helpful :slight_smile:
