2.82 ct Burma Ruby Art Deco Engagement Ring (No Heat, GIA report)


This is an extraordinary authentic Art Deco engagement ring, featuring a very rare unheated Burmese ruby. Whether used as an engagement ring again, or worn as a right hand ring, it will enchant with its old world charm.

Ruby: 1 fine quality Burmese ruby, estimated weight of 2.82 ct, with GIA report confirming the origin from the famous gem mines of Burma, and the unheated / untreated condition of the ruby.

Diamonds: 30 accent diamonds – 16 transitional old european cut diamonds forming the halo around the ruby, and a total of 14 antique single cut diamonds adorning the ring shank (7 on each side). Total diamond weight is an estimated 0.80 ct.

Metal: Platinum (no purity marks present, tested in our atelier as platinum 900 at least, probably it is rather platinum 950).

An authentic piece of Art Deco jewelry, the ring was made in the 1920s in Europe. There are no maker's marks giving a hint about its country of origin, but from the stylistic features we think that it might have been made in one of the Scandinavian countries, most probably Sweden or Denmark. In any case, the craftsmanship is superb, with very delicate details in the metalwork.

The condition is good for a well loved piece of jewelry that is almost 100 years old, with some wear and tear. The ruby shows some surface naturals and dents on the underside (see picture), but all gems sit securely in their settings, which we have all checked thoroughly. The intricate details of the goldsmithing, such as the fine milgrain to the edges and the original hand engraving to the ring shank sides, are all well preserved.

Ring size is currently 6.75 (US). Sizing is possible, within limits. Please inquire with your desired size.

Comes with a recent appraisal by the Gemological Appraisal Laboratory (GAL), New York, stating a replacement value of $18,500.00.
