#jewelleryfacts365 135/365 Ruby fact

Tuesday, June 14, 2016

The most expensive ruby sold was a ‘pigeon’s blood red’ 8.62-carat cushion-cut ruby. Impressively, the ruby was an unheated Burmese stone that sold for $3,637,480 ($425,000 per carat). The gemstone was eventually purchased by Laurence Graff at Christie's, and set in a Bulgari rectangular-shaped diamond bombé mounted ring (2006, Geneva).
