    The most precious and sought after variety of the mineral corundum is the Red coloured” Ruby”. The red colour of the Ruby is due to the trace element chromium. For thousands of years it has been the most sought after and the most valuable gemstone. Today a fine gem quality Ruby is much more expensive and rarer than a Diamond.

    When anyone speaks of Ruby the benchmark is the Burma Ruby also referred to as the Burmese Ruby. For centuries this is the most valued and the rarest of Rubies. For Gem connoisseurs the origin of a Gemstone is as important as cut, colour, clarity and carat weight and Just like a Kashmir Sapphire or a Colombian Emerald is rare and special so is also a Burma Ruby.

    Whether the Gem is a deep intense red, Royal Red, Hot Pink, Fuchsia or Imperial Pigeon Blood Red Just the name of Burma evokes passion and mystique. Today fine quality Burma Rubies are beyond the reach of common man and only people with significant resources are able to procure these rare beauties that are no more commonly available.
