The red color of the ruby symbolizes raw emotion at its most basic level. There is something to the radiance and beauty of a fine ruby that no other gem approaches. Unlike some gem species and varieties that occur in larger sizes, quality rubies of five carats are already very rare. As the world’s primary source of ruby, Burma (presently Myanmar) adds a further layer of mystique. Burmese rubies that have not been enhanced and retain the color and quality bestowed upon them by nature are even rarer.
These pair of earrings are accompanied by AGL certificate that has determinated that the six rubies mounted on them have originated from the South-East Asian Country of Burma. Furthermore, as a further consideration, these rubies posses a richly saturated and vivid red color that distinguishes fine gems.
These six gem rubies exemplify the quality that have earned Burma its reputation as the premier ruby source in the world and their incorporation into jewels of refined elegance, places them in a class that is even more exclusive. Augmenting the importance of these outstanding Burmese gems is the fact that they do not exhibit any gemological evidence of heating.Heating is commonly employed to improve the color and quality of many rubies. Indeed the period of this jewelry item predates the advent of the modern heating practise that are so commonplace today. Furthermore, these rubies further exemplify the character of quality Burmese rubies in the era prior to modern heating practices.
