Item Description

One of the most popular classics of all historic jewelry stones across cultures, ruby is both exceptionally durable and often said to be the rarest of the big three — rubies, sapphires, and emeralds. This example is a classic and flashy Burma (Myanmar) ruby with standard heat treatment only (no more agressive clarity enhancements etc). It has a rich red color in a highly desirable round brilliant cut, that faces up with an attractive “visual impact.” Perfectly calibrated for jewelry setting, this is a beautiful gem and a genuine Burma ruby at a fair price, surely...they are only getting more and more difficult to get due to archaic mining methods and the government and management chaos in the mining region.
