Items which contain rubies or jadeite originating in Burma (Myanmar) may not
be imported into the U.S. As a convenience to our bidders, we have marked
these lots with Y. Please be advised that a purchaser¹s inability to import
any such item into the U.S. or any other country shall not constitute
grounds for non-payment or cancellation of the sale.
With respect to items that contain any other types of gemstones originating
in Burma (e.g., sapphires), such items may be imported into the U.S.,
provided that the gemstones have been mounted or incorporated into jewellery
outside of Burma and provided that the setting is not of a temporary nature
(e.g., a string).
