EXQUISITE RUBIES OF DUCHESS OF ROXBURGHE

Today, a considerable portion of rubies seen in the market is often enhanced or heated to create this unique colour of Burmese rubies sought after by collectors all over the world. The finest Burmese rubies are of such breath-taking natural beauty that is in no need of artificial treatments and enhancements. These rubies testifies to this very truth. Each weighing over five carats, the stones possess a homogeneous red colour with good saturation afforded by a desirable clarity. A single stone with a combination of all these outstanding qualities is indeed extremely scarce, thus the rarity of two such well-matched stones cannot be overemphasized.


On March 20, 1878, the 5th Earl of Rosebery married Hannah, only daughter and heiress of Baron Mayer Amschel de Rothschild, of Mentmore, Buckinghamshire. The Earl's diary entry for March 28, 1884 succinctly reads:"London, Garrard came at 12 with the ruby necklace which I bought".
This necklace had to be lengthened and together with a pair of earrings in a fitted case, would have been a gift for his wife Hannah.
The Earl and Countess' youngest daughter, Margaret Primrose, was born in 1881and is pictured above.

On April 20 1899, Lady Margaret Primrose married Robert Crew-Milnes, the first and last Marquess of Crewe, in Westminster Abbey.
The Times of that day reported that "among those present at the abbey were 600 invited guests, all wearing wedding favors of marguerites and primroses, representing the bride's name."  Even her wedding dress was embroidered with diamond primroses.
This important pair of ruby earrings, together with an astonishing necklace set with rubies of matching colour and quality, were most probably gifted to the new Marchioness of Crewe and thence by decent to her daughter, Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe.
Just a few years prior (In 1886, the British succeeded in taking over Upper Burma. By 1889, they had formed Burma Ruby Mines Ltd), to that the Mogok Valley mines were acquired by the British and operations were overseen by the British jeweller Edwin Streeter. It is possible to that this suite of rubies may have been among the first Mogok specimens reaching England.

In 1935, Mary married the ninth Duke of Roxburghe and later became The Duchess of Roxburghe. The Duchess of Roxburghe was notable for her tenacity and striking deportment, and certainly for the myriad of splendid jewels that she wore and inherited. The Duchess worked for many charities and was President of the National Union of Townswomen’s Guilds. She was also a devoted patron of the Royal Ballet and an enthusiastic member of the Royal Society of Literature.
To add to their eminent pedigree, this exquisite ruby jewels was the property of Mary, Duchess of Roxburghe.
