A SUPERB RUBY AND DIAMOND RING
Designed as a flowerhead, set to the centre with a cushion-shaped ruby, weighing approximately 5.01 carats, to the oval-shaped rose-cut diamond petals, each within a circular-cut ruby stylized surround, mounted in gold, ring size 5½
Accompanied by report no. 62208 dated 24 February 2012 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the ruby is of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating; also accompanied by an appendix stating that the ruby possesses extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The ruby exhibits a vivid red colour with an excellent purity and an attractive cutting style. The very minute inclusions found by microscopic inspection are characteristic for rubies from Burma. Its vivid red, poetically referred to "pigeon's blood", is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the stone, typical and characteristic for the finest rubies of the Mogok gemstone tract. A natural ruby from Burma of this quality is very rare and exceptional
