Ruby, Cushion Cut, 2.08 CT
It’s no surprise that stunning Burmese rubies such as this are a perfect symbol of passion. One look at this 2.08-carat Burmese ruby’s smoldering glow and unheated, intense purplish-red color as certified by the Gem & Pearl Laboratory and you can envision an inextinguishable flame burning within. Past civilizations even suggested that the “fire” coming from rubies was so hot it could shine through clothing—even boil water. This Burmese ruby, available in an elongated cushion shape, pairs exceptionally well with another cushion-shaped Burmese ruby in our inventory. Have them designed into a spectacular pair of earrings or other jewel and watch the sparks fly!
This Burmese ruby has a perfect match: Ruby, Cushion Cut, 2.51 Carats
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.
