Details
A MAGNIFICENT RUBY AND DIAMOND NECKLACE, BY ETCETERA
Designed as an articulated brilliant-cut diamond lattice-work band, centering on a line of graduated pear-shaped diamonds, thirteen pear-shaped diamonds weighing approximately 5.14 to 1.00 carats, framed by two rows of oval and cushion-shaped rubies weighing approximately 7.02 to 1.10 carats, to the brilliant-cut diamond link backchain accented with a pear-shaped diamond, mounted in 18k white gold, 43.9 cm long

With maker's mark for Etcetera
Accompanied by premium report no. 79458 dated 20 March 2015 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the forty-eight rubies weighing approximately 120.00 carats total are of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating and the colour of these rubies may also be called 'pigeon's blood' in the trade; also accompanied by an appendix stating that the natural ruby necklace possesses extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The rubies exhibit a highly matching vivid colour and an outstanding fine purity, rarely encountered in rubies of Burmese origin. The small inclusions found by microscopic inspection and the analysed properties of these rubies are the hallmarks of rubies from the reputed mines in the Mogok valley (the majority of these rubies including the largest ruby) and Mong Hsu (southeast of Mogok). Their attractive and saturated colour - poetically referred to as "pigeon blood red" - is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in these gemstones, characteristic for the finest rubies from Burma (Myanmar). The rubies have been spared exposure to heat treatment and their colour and purity are thus entirely natural. Assembling a matching selection of natural rubies from Burma of such quality and size - all showing the most sought after "pigeon blood red' colour - is extremely rare and exceptional. Thus this ruby necklace can be considered a true treasure of nature

Also accompanied by thirty-five reports from the Gübelin Gemmological Laboratory stating that the rubies are of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating and this colour variety may also be called "pigeon's blood red" in the trade

Also accompanied by forty-eight reports from the Gem Research Swiss Lab stating that the rubies are of Burma (Myanmar) origin, vivid red colour (GRS type "pigeon's blood"), with no indication of treatments

Thirteen reports dated from 10 August 2010 to 30 May 2013 from the Gemological Institute of America stating that the pear-shaped diamonds weighing from 5.14 to 1.00 carat range from D to G colour, internally flawless to SI1 clarity
