Michele della Valle Necklace and Burmese Red Ruby Ring Highlight Sotheby’s Upcoming Jewelry SaleNov 29, 2022 10:00 EST
The blood red variety of rubies from Myanmar (formerly Burma) is considered to be a sought-after one among precious stones. Often compared with the color of pigeon’s blood, the red ruby is valued for its exceptional rarity. Associated with regal status, the red ruby signifies passion and warmth. A ring made of an oval-shaped red ruby of Burmese origin is a key highlight of Sotheby’s upcoming Fine Jewels sale. Weighing 4.69 carats, the ruby is designed in a lightly brushed bezel mounting and is set in a 22-karat gold ring. Another striking piece studded with rubies, spinels, and diamonds is a Michele della Valle necklace. The wide bib-shaped piece is fashioned with floral motifs centering spinel cabochons. The petals are accented with round rubies and diamonds. Jeweler-designer Michele della Valle is celebrated for his dream-like creations designed with colored gemstones.
A pear-shaped fancy yellow diamond necklace also leads the listings. The chain is designed with alternating round and yellow diamonds. The accenting round diamonds weigh a total of approximately 1.30 carats, and the fancy yellow diamonds weigh 15.83 carats. Also known as canary diamonds, yellow diamonds are the most prized among the fancy variety. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Sotheby’s.
