The pomme d’amour or “apple of love.” That’s what comes to mind when you gaze at this luscious 3.90-carat natural Burmese ruby glistening like an apple after it’s been coated with heated sugar. This Burmese ruby has an unenhanced, rich magenta color that sparkles between red and purple undertones. Its inclusions, meanwhile, minimal to the naked eye, contribute to a play of light that gives this stone that classic Burmese ruby radiance. An antique cushion shape with soft angles and an even ratio intensify its allure, beckoning you to take a bite.
This ruby is certified as a Burmese ruby with no heat treatment by the American Gemological Laboratories.

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.
