Description

Ruby is said to be the most romantic gemstone of all, often given as a gift to show the passion and strength of a relationship. French jewelers in the 1800s referred to the ruby as the "dearly loved stone." It was said that the sparkle and fiery red color of the ruby inspired sensuality in the wearer. These precious rubies cast a radiant, richly saturated glow from within a sparkling halo of bright white round brilliant-cut diamonds, bordering on love poetry. This Contemporary Burmese Diamond Necklace Earrings Demi Parure Suite, made in the 21st century, is comprised of two distinct yet stylistically related pieces—a necklace and a pair of earrings—magnificently crafted in platinum and 18K white gold and set with 23 cabochon red rubies with an estimated total weight of 106.43 carats that certainly stirs the passions, and accented with mixed cut white diamonds with an estimated total weight of 60.39 carats.

It is not surprising that the cabochon ruby is one of the oldest and most coveted gemstones used in the crowns and jewelry of kings. The necklace sets the opulent tone for the suite, featuring a graduated series of 17 oval-to-cushion cabochon red rubies, measuring from approximately 11.58 x 8.71 x 6.38 mm to 7.98 x 6.18 x 4.15 mm, with an estimated total weight of 80.96 carats. Each polished stone is held with four talon prongs and beautifully accented with sparkling oval-shaped halos comprised of proportionally large round brilliant-cut diamonds, amplifying the luxuriousness of the presentation. The rubies alternate with asymmetric foliate motifs, each consisting of a brilliant combination of marquise, pear-shaped, and round diamonds with an estimated total weight of 45.38 carats. The rubies are accompanied by reports from the America Gemological Laboratories (AGL) and C. Dunaigre stating they are natural corundum rubies of "intense red color" and Burmese (Myanmar) origin with no gemological evidence of thermal treatment.

Burmese rubies are arguably the gold standard by which every ruby is measured. They are the rarest and most valuable, prized for their saturated color caused by a high chromium content in the ground from which they are extracted. Burma has been a significant ruby source since at least 600 AD. Today, the mines no longer produce large or gem-quality stones, thus raising the value of a limited supply. The value of these splendid stones is further amplified by the fact that they are unheated. In contrast, most colored gemstones are heat-treated to improve color saturation and clarity.

The clip-back earrings, outfitted with hinged omega backs, mirror the richly sparkling halo design in the necklace, here instead clustered in threes. Six cushion shape cabochon rubies with an estimated total weight of 25.47 carats share the borders of the six overlapping diamond halos, likewise composed of proportionally large and luxurious round brilliant-cut diamonds, with an estimated total weight of 15.01 carats. The earrings present a strong sculptural silhouette on the ear, dropping significantly below the lobe, with lush color made all the more lively by the brilliant sparkle from the diamond surrounds. When you wear this demi-parure as an ensemble, all eyes will be on you.
