Burma has been the prime location for the mining of the finest quality rubies in the world. Burmese rubies are set apart from any other origin due to their incomparable scarlet hue known as "pigeon's blood" red. Associated with the world’s best rubies for centuries, the beguiling stones were scarcely allowed to leave the country by edict of the king himself. Burma’s borders were closed in 1962 due to political unrest, further restricting the trade of these highly sought-after gems. To this day, Burmese rubies are widely considered among the rarest of all precious gemstones, and those weighing more than 4.00 carats are especially precious.Download the Certification
