Description

Rich red Burmese oval and pear-shaped rubies weighing 11.82 carats total are the stars of these dazzling drop pierced earrings with French clips, crafted in gleaming platinum. All rubies have been certified by the American Gem Trade Association (AGTA) with reports stating that the rubies are unheated and of Burmese origin. Natural unheated rubies command a premium due to their rarity, and Burmese rubies are considered the finest in the world.

Rubies can command the highest per-carat price of any colored stone. This makes the ruby one of the more important gems in the colored stone market. The ruby is one variety of the corundum mineral species, which also includes sapphire. In its purest form, the mineral corundum is colorless. Trace elements that become part of the mineral’s crystal structure cause variations in its color. Chromium is the trace element that causes ruby’s red, which ranges from an orangy red to a purplish red. The strength of ruby’s red depends on how much chromium is present—the more chromium, the stronger the red color. The majority of colored gemstones on the market have been heat-treated to improve the color saturation. By contrast, these four natural rubies have beautiful color saturation without any heat being applied, and as such is are rare and prized examples.

These precious rubies cast a radiant, richly saturated glow from within a sparkling halo of bright white round brilliant-cut diamonds, weighing 4.5 carats total. To exalt the beauty of each ruby, a skilled jeweler will select diamonds with intense whiteness such as these; juxtaposed against diamond halos, the brilliant color saturation of the ruby is intensified. Each oval ruby is set with four 18K yellow gold talon-like prongs, and each pear-shaped ruby is set with three. Beautiful and uniquely custom-made accents for these spectacular gemstones.
