ACCOMPANIED BY REPORT NO. 76381 DATED 24 SEPTEMBER 2014 FROM THE SSEF SWISS GEMMOLOGICAL INSTITUTE STATING THAT THE RUBIES WEIGHING 4.06, 4.02, 2.59 AND 2.45 CARAT RUBIES ARE OF BURMESE (MYANMAR) ORIGIN, WITH NO INDICATIONS OF HEATING AND THE COLOUR OF THESE RUBIES MAY ALSO BE CALLED 'PIGEON'S BLOOD RED' IN THE TRADE; ALSO ACCOMPANIED BY AN APPENDIX STATING THAT THE PAIR OF RUBY EAR-PENDANTS POSSESSES EXTRAORDINARY CHARACTERISTICS AND MERITS SPECIAL MENTION AND APPRECIATION. THE RUBIES HAVE BEEN CAREFULLY SELECTED FOR THIS JEWELLERY ITEM TO MATCH IN QUALITY. THEY ALL SHOW A VERY ATTRACTIVE AND VIVID COLOUR AND A FINE PURITY. THE SMALL INCLUSIONS FOUND BY MICROSCOPIC INSPECTION ARE THE HALLMARKS OF RUBIES FROM THE CLASSICAL RUBY MINES IN THE MOGOK VALLEY IN BURMA (MYANMAR), WELL KNOWN FOR ITS WEALTH IN GEMS SINCE HISTORIC TIMES. THEIR VIVID AND SATURATED COLOUR - POETICALLY ALSO REFERRED TO AS "PIGEON'S BLOOD RED" - IS DUE TO A COMBINATION OF WELL-BALANCED TRACE ELEMENTS IN THESE GEMSTONES, CHARACTERISTICS FOR THE FINEST RUBIES FROM BURMA (MYANMAR). THE RUBIES HAVE BEEN SPARED EXPOSURE TO HEAT TREATMENT AND THEIR COLOUR AND PURITY ARE THUS ALL NATURAL. ASSEMBLING A MATCHING SELECTION OF NATURAL RUBIES FROM BURMA OF SUCH A QUALITY IS RARE AND EXCEPTIONAL
