ROUND RUBY 0.70ct
The ruby is one of the four precious stones along with the diamond, the emerald and the sapphire. The ruby is historically significant and one of the most appreciated by European royalty and the upper classes. Its value depends on its color, size, density and purity. The most valued and coveted for their deep red color and incomparable brilliance are the «Pigeon’s Blood» rubies from the Mandalay region in northern Burma.
ROUND RUBY PROPERTIES & LOCATION
Rubies have been prized for centuries, but of all the varieties of rubies, Burmese rubies are the most prominent, primarily because of their color. They come from Burma, a Southeast Asian country now known as Myanmar. These mines were famous for producing about 90 percent of all “Pigeon’s Blood” rubies. Unfortunately, these mines in Burma are nearly depleted, making Burmese rubies rare and expensive. Owning a Burmese ruby these days can be increasingly difficult.
