RUBY FOR ELA WEBElmwood’s auctioneers is delighted to offer a spectacular 14.67 carat natural Burmese ruby ring in its upcoming sale of Important Jewels on November 28, 2019.

Natural rubies above 5 carats are extremely rare, so to have one over 14 carats is extraordinary, which means that rubies of this size infrequently come onto the market. This impressive ruby is accompanied by two gemmological reports, confirming it is of Burmese (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heat treatment, meaning it is natural and unheated. The ring is set with a cushion-cut ruby encircled by a border of marquise and baguette-cut diamonds in ballerina style and is estimated to fetch £30,000-£50,000.

Exceptional rubies are the main theme of the sale, with another exciting addition of an important Burmese ruby and diamond bracelet, comprising a row of alternating cluster and openwork links, set with ten oval cut rubies, totalling 17.0 carats. They are encircled with diamonds and a princess-cut set clasp. Again accompanied by a gemmological report, which states it is of Burmese (Myanmar) origin, with no indications of heat treatment. It is estimated to fetch £80,000-120,000.
