A RARE RUBY AND DIAMOND RING, BY HARRY WINSTON
Set with a cushion-shaped ruby weighing approximately 8.99 carats, flanked by triangular-shaped diamonds, mounted in platinum and 18k yellow gold, ring size 7

With maker's mark for Harry Winston
Accompanied by report no. 68466 dated 28 May 2013 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the 8.99 carat ruby is of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating; also accompanied by an appendix stating that the 8.99 ruby possesses extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The ruby exhibits a vivid red colour, combined with an excellent purity and an attractive cutting style. Microscopic inspection represent the hallmarks of the classical ruby mines in the Mogok valley in Burma (Myanmar). A natural ruby from Burma of this quality and size is rare and exceptional

Also accompanied by report no. CS 82969 dated 24 September 2013 from the American Gemological Laboratories stating that based on available gemological information, it is the opinion of the Laboratory that the ruby weighing 8.99 carat is natural, the origin of this material would be classified as Burma (Myanmar), heat enhancement: none, clarity enhancement: none; also accompanied by a letter from the American Gemological Laboratories stating that the ruby possesses a richly saturated colour that is typical of fine quality rubies from the historic Burmese locality of the Mogok valley. Traditionally, rubies of this colour have been described as having a "pigeon blood" hue. The beautiful colour of this ruby is further complemented by a fine cut resulting in bright, internal colour reflections and brilliance. The lack of enhancement further accentuates the rarity and desirability of this fine gemstone. Gem rubies of such provenance and quality are rare
