About the object

A SUPERB PAIR OF RUBY AND DIAMOND EAR PENDANTS\n\nEach set with an oval-shaped ruby, weighing approximately 10.02 and 9.09 carats, within a circular-cut diamond surround, to the similarly-cut diamond surmount and spacer, mounted in platinum and gold, 4.2 cm\nAccompanied by report no. 85531 dated 21 April 2016 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the rubies are of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating and the colour of these rubies may also be called ‘pigeon blood red’ based on SSEF reference standards; also accompanied by an appendix stating that the rubies possesses extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The two rubies exhibit an impressive size and have been carefully selected for their attractive colour and fine purity, thus resulting in a beautifully matching pair of ruby ear-pendants. The small inclusions found by microscopic inspection are consistent with those rubies from the reputed mines in the Mogok valley and from Mong Hsu located southeast of Mogok in Burma(Myanmar). Their attractive and saturated colour, poetically also referred to as ‘pigeon blood red’ in the trade, is due to\na combination of well-balanced trace elements, which are characteristic for the finest rubies from Burma. Assembling a pair of natural rubies from Burma of this size and quality is very rare and exceptional.\n\nTwo reports nos. 52950 and 52150 dated 2 December 2008 and 2 September 2008 from the SSEF Swiss Gemmological Institute stating that the rubies are of Burma (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heating; also accompanied by two letters stating that the rubies possess extraordinary characteristics and merits special mention and appreciation. The gemstones exhibit a well-saturated colour combined with a very pleasant cutting style. Its vivid red, poetically referred to as “pigeon blood” is due to a combination of well-balanced trace elements in the stone, characteristic for rubies from Burma.\n\nPlease note that two reports are more than 5 years old and might require an update\n\nUS$10,000,000-18,000,000
