Ruby, Cushion Cut, 3.03 CT
“They brought me rubies from the mine and held them to the sun. I said, they are drops of frozen wine from Eden’s vats that run.” So said Ralph Waldo Emerson in his poem “Rubies,” which couldn’t be more appropriate when viewing this 3.03-carat natural Burmese ruby. It looks like it was plucked from a vineyard in paradise! Its glorious color, unenhanced by heat treatment as certified by the American Gemological Laboratories, is surely intoxicating. This Burmese ruby also has an antique rounded cushion shape that’s a bit shallow, allowing it to sit low on the finger. Imagine it then in a lovely ring design that lets you drink in its splendor.
For centuries, the Mogok Stone Tract of Burma, otherwise known as modern-day Myanmar, has provided the world with its finest rubies. Burmese rubies are renowned for their clarity, silk inclusions that give them a soft glow, and, of course, their vibrant color—a combination of purplish-red body color and fiery red fluorescence, with the most coveted called “pigeon’s blood.” Today, with most of the alluvial deposits in the region depleted, Burmese rubies are among the most valuable and prestigious of all gemstones.
