A 4.26 ct Burmese ruby is the centrepiece of this ring. The colour is a red of medium strong saturation, or vivid red (GRS type “pigeon’s blood”). There is no indication of heat treatment, however there is minor oil present. Cushion-shaped, this very well laid out stone exhibits just a couple of small surface-reaching fissures, including one on the table, but this is not a major distraction. Set in an 18k white gold ring, the ruby is surrounded by very delicate pear-shaped diamonds.

Diamond is perhaps the most famous gemstone. It has many sought after gem properties: it’s incredibly hard (10/10 on Mohs scale), brilliant, lustrous and exhibits high dispersion. Most diamonds are billions of years old and composed simply of the element carbon. Diamonds in the white range have been popularised in engagement rings since the 1940s, while fancy colours are far rarer. Diamonds are also used to complement and accentuate the allure of coloured gemstones. Diamond is the birthstone for April and for 60th and 75th anniversaries

Officially the most valuable coloured gemstone, ruby is the red variety of the mineral corundum

This term, synonymous with rubies, is highly prized. Not consistently applied throughout the trade, for some ‘pigeon’s blood’ is simply a colour reference for the most vivid red rubies, while for others, it is a quality designation term, which should also apply only to untreated gems of the highest clarity and quality in general. Different laboratories will have different standards for this term on their reports, but in general, expect to pay a premium for rubies of this type.

Gembridge Members source their gem-quality stones from countries all over the world, including many famous regions and mines. While origin is not an indicator of quality, it does provide context for buyers.

Origins listed on Gembridge may be stated as an opinion on a laboratory report or described by the Seller familiar with the stone’s provenance.

Gemstones come in many different forms. On Gembridge, we describe each by its shape in simple terms – round, square, cushion etc. Where relevant, we may also list the style of cutting, such as brilliant, step etc.

Although untreated gems are highly prized, there are many universally accepted treatments that enhance a gemstone’s beauty, including heating (for colour), and oiling (for clarity). On Gembridge, all treatments must be fully disclosed, so you know exactly what kind of gemstone you are purchasing.
