Burmese Ruby Ring and Unmounted Aquamarine Lead Fine Estate Inc.’s Upcoming SaleJan 22, 2023 14:00 EST
Mogôk Valley in Myanmar has been a major source of rubies for centuries. An interesting legend is associated with the discovery of the Burmese gemstone in this region. It is believed that when a group of hunters were shooting crows, they found rubies in the claws of the retrieved birds. Exploring further, they found rubies lying all over, which is how the Mogôk area became culturally and geologically significant for ruby mining. A ring studded with a natural ruby from Myanmar (former Burma) is a key highlight of the upcoming Fine Estate Inc. auction. Designed in 18-karat white gold, it is fashioned with an oval-cut ruby that weighs 2.53 carats. It is accented by 124 diamonds, including round brilliant-cut and princess-cut that together weigh 2.06 carats. Another noteworthy lot in this sale is an unmounted emerald-cut aquamarine, weighing 110.36 carats.
Harry Raymond Henry’s oil on canvas, The Carnival of Nature, leads the fine arts section of the catalog. Henry is known for painting the lyrical landscapes of Southern California in his famous Pointillist style.
