Burma Ruby Round, 1.92 ct
This natural Burmese ruby has a lovely unenhanced red color with vivid magenta undertones that thoroughly saturate the stone. Its antique round shape helps the color spread well and exceeds the look of a 2-carat gem.
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.
