Bi-Color Burmese Ruby Pair Earrings


A pair of bi-color Burmese ruby corundum weighing 4ctw, showing a bright display of reddish-pink and white (transparent).

These unusual rubies are in effect corundums showing both aspects of ruby and (white) sapphire.

The colour parts are usually cut away for a full colored gemstone, or else most are very small cabochons.

The artful separation of pink and white is a thing of beauty, organic yet idealistic, almost unreal. Yet these are gem quality stones; they differ from cabochons used in costume jewelry or trendy cabs.

While we can get less vividly separated bi-color sapphires, coming across bi-color cabochons (specifically pink and white) is very rare. Refer to the group shot for an idea of color spectrum in these type of corundums.

The larger ruby measures 8.5mm by 6.5mm, both stones are a good size for a pair of earrings.

This is not just a collector’s stone; it is also a jeweller’s stone. It is a mining and cutting ‘anomaly’ that does not happen as often as we wish.

If worked on a design that measures up, it will become a one-of-a-kind piece of jewelry.
