Ruby is the gem most often bestowed on those born in July as well as on those born under the Zodiac sign of Aries. If you’re looking for a truly exceptional birthday gift, consider this gorgeous natural Burmese ruby. Not only does it have the prestige of originating in Burma (Myanmar), producer of the world’s finest rubies, it also has the fiery glow and quintessential purplish-red color, unheated and saturated throughout the stone as certified by the American Gemological Laboratories. This 2.28-carat Burmese ruby also has Art Deco appeal with its elongated step cut that’s neither too narrow nor too deep in proportion. It’s sure to be treasured year after year.
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.
