Buy Ruby & Shop at Bogyoke Market

The Bogyoke Market in the center of Yangon is one of the best places when it comes to buy ruby jewelry, loose stone, maybe a great star ruby, sapphire, jade and other precious stones.

This is a real Asian bazaar in best traditional meaning, almost nothing has changed since British colonial times, actual the former name was Scott Market.

When buying it is very advisable to take an expert with you since you are not able to look through at the spot. This wont matter when buying only some small items but when it gets over maybe $ 500,- its better to be very careful.

It is unlikely that the shop staff will sell heat-treated ruby without telling but it is very difficult for a non true professional to capture the quality of rubies. There are evaluation experts in Yangon for hire on a time base, which costs a few dollars but is still better than to be tricked.

Shopping ruby at Bogyoke Market

Between the halls in the center is a larger space where many guys stand and sit around and make covert transactions, quickly pulling a handkerchief from the pocket to show the potential buyer the stone and put it away quickly.

This open air ruby market is just something for real experts and foreigners should never buy any precious stone there.

These guys are also not able to issue a official invoice which is absolutely necessary for custom when leaving the country.

No one should believe this little stone can’t be found anyway, it will be found at the airport inspection because within these groups at the market are always some informants to pass the data to the authorities.

In a ruby shop

jewelry and loose stones are for sale, ruby gold jewelry is the most popular. Stores selling the red stones usually also sell sapphires and sometimes spinel which are cheaper than rubies but look very similar, a casual shopper wont see the difference.

All top stores are in the main building of the market, usually on the left and right of the wide aisle and at the road front.

There are two mining center in Myanmar, one is Mogok, picture right, and the other is Mong Hsu, picture left.

The jewelry stores here are able to fulfill almost any requirement because of the rich variety of different stones and jewelry styles. Many jewels maybe are not so attractive for the modern “western” eye but searching around a bit will uncover also pretty modern style items. If you stay a bit longer in the country a custom design according to your ideas can be made, actually it goes very fast since all this stores have some manufacturing facilities elsewhere in the Yangon.
