Pigeon's Blood Burma Ruby, Cushion Cut, 2.28 CT
There’s a reason red is used to indicate “stop.” Its powerful hue makes you take notice. The same can be said for this fine gemstone, a natural 2.28-carat cushion-shaped ruby from Burma (Myanmar). It captivates you with its “pigeon’s blood red” color, the highest color ranking a Burmese ruby can achieve. This color is also unenhanced by heat treatment, a common practice to improve a ruby’s qualities. What’s more, the color is superbly saturated throughout the stone, without moving toward opaque or “over-colored.” Placed into the right setting, and this Burmese ruby is bound to make you pay attention.
This ruby is certified as a Burmese ruby with “pigeon’s blood red” color and no heat treatment by the Gemological Institute of America.

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.
