I had an excellent experience when I purchased a set of rubies from Himalayan Gems and Jewelry. A friend who had made an earlier purchase referred me to Ahmad and I could not ask for a more professional and knowledgeable gemologist. I was looking for a set of three round cut rubies to be made into a necklace. Khalid explained the entire process from the time the ruby was mined and given to the gem-cutter until the piece is created by the jeweler, his explanations on gem quality factors, cutting techniques and the way the stones would be set far exceeded any experience I have ever had. I have had exclusively designed jewelry made from some of the most notable designers in the industry and my experience with Himalayan Gems and Jewelry ranks as one of the best. I highly recommend you give Ahmad and Himalayan Gems and Jewelry a chance and I guarantee you will be a repeat customer.
