The Accredited Gemologists
Association, the Jewelers Vigilance Committee and American Gemological
Laboratories will present a 3-hour hands-on workshop in Las Vegas to end the
confusion about ruby products now in the market.
will learn how composites differ from other rubies that have been treated by
methods with which glass is associated but which are fundamentally still
considered “ruby,” and most important, how to spot them quickly and
easily using simple tools they already have.
will take place in Las Vegas, Friday, June 4, from 2:00-5:00 p.m. at The
Platinum Hotel. The cost is $75. For
