Burma Ruby Cushion Cut, 0.70 ct
This natural Burmese ruby has an unenhanced, bright cherry-red color with magenta undertones evenly spread throughout it. It also has that quintessential Burmese ruby glow. Combined, these qualities accentuate the stone, making it an ideal choice for a three-stone ring that sits low on the finger.
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.
