AN IMPORTANT BURMESE RUBY AND DIAMOND CLUSTER RING Zur nächsten Seite - Next Page

Of all the gemstones that appear on the market with any regularity, it is the fine Burmese ruby that is the rarest and most sought after, specialy the characteristic true "pigeon blood" red colour typical of Burma material.
The first European visited Burma in the 1520s and even then, he found that rubies were highly visible on the attire of the King and his court.

Not only are the famous ruby mines of the Mogok Stone Tract yielding fewer and fewer stones over five carats, but also the market has seen a diminishing number of pieces of antique ruby jewellery and old Burmese gems appearing for sale

Above there is an Aigrette or Sarpech it is an ornament in the shape of an egret plume which may be worn on a turban, hat or in the hair, and is typically gemset or enameled, popular during the 17th and 18th centuries, and then again in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The favourite items of the Princes are magnificent ornaments with large emeralds or other gems like sapphire, diamonds and rubies.
