This is a truly stunning ring that features an exquisite 5.28 carat Burmese star ruby. It is exceptional for several reasons. Not only is this ruby unusually large and of super fine quality; it is certified to be of Burmese origin, exhibits the phenomenon of asterism, and is unheated! Burma, now known as Myanmar, is one of the premier sources of the world's finest rubies and as such, Burmese rubies are both highly sought after and valued. This particular gem has a beautifully high dome with a straight, centered and complete "star." It is also semi-transparent and therefore of higher quality than more opaque star rubies.
We have set this rare beauty in an exquisitely handmade vintage platinum ring whose craftsmanship harks back to an earlier time when artisans spent decades fine-tuning and perfecting their skill. Twenty-one Old European cut diamonds weighing a total of .72 carats encircle the ruby like a crown jewel fit for royalty.
Delicate artisanship and a fine, rare gem accompanied by Gemological Institute of America Origin Report #5201169255 - if you're a gem connoisseur looking for a statement of luxury, this ring checks all the boxes!
