Take in that divine luscious hue...and the fact that this is an unheated, natural Burmese ruby...for it is truly pigeon's blood red in color.
Oval in shaped and faceted to perfection, the gemstone ranks as one of the most desirable in the world. Nothing is considered finer in the ruby world, than those from Burma.
Even throughout in color, saturated in hue, its depth and richness are also matched by its fiery highlights deep within its interior.
To set it off, ten old mine-cut diamonds form a contoured frame of scintillation.
The top cluster was formerly an antique brooch, then nearly invisibly removed and converted to a ring with a modern, but antique-style under-gallery and shank. Beautiful leaf-like shoulders punctuate the central cluster.
