Description

This sparkling Vintage Mid-Century Burmese Ruby Diamond Bombé Bracelet, made in Europe, circa 1950s, is crafted in platinum and features wide diagonal striped bands of Burmese rubies alternating with wide and narrow bands of round brilliant-cut and baguette diamonds with an estimated weight of 27-30 carats total of G-I color and VS-SI clarity. The approximately 60 round and oval step-cut rubies are accompanied by report no. 116613, dated 26 March 2021 from the Swiss Gemmological Institute (SSEF) stating that they are of Burmese origin with no indications of heating, making their naturally occurring pinkish red to red colors more exceptional.

Burmese rubies are arguably the gold standard by which every ruby is measured. They are the most rare and valuable, prized for their saturated particular color, caused by a high chromium content in the ground from which they are extracted. Today, the mines of Myanmar (formerly Burma) are no longer producing large or gem-quality stones, thus raising the value on a limited supply. In fact, today, the majority of Burmese rubies are mainly found in estate pieces such as this stunning bracelet, extracted decades or even centuries ago.

Coveted for centuries, rubies can command the highest per-carat price of any colored stone, second only to colored diamonds. To exalt the rich color of a ruby, a skilled jeweler will select diamonds with intense whiteness. Juxtaposed against multiple diamond treatments, the brilliant color saturation of the ruby is intensified. The striking shape of the repeated motif—curved and pointed like a tilde in a Spanish eñe—is crisply accented by the clean lines and modern, geometric look of the baguette diamond. These narrow accents bring a boldness and frankness to the overall design, as they cut through the opulent domed forms of densely clustered rounded gemstones. Every stripe of this bracelet is glorious, each in its own right and amplified in contrast to the whole.
