Up for grabs is this extravagant vintage 1930's Art Deco reddish pink sapphire ring. The large pear cut gemstone measures about 15.15 by 11.16 by 3.79 mm's and calculates to approximately 5 carats. It is EGL certified as having no indications of heat treatment present and Burma origin. This stone was considered a ruby when the ring was purchased by its original owner in the 1930's. At that time, all red and pinkish red stones were rubies. Today, EGL says it has enough pink to be classified as a sapphire. I find it interesting that the certificate calls the stone a reddish pink sapphire but also states, "The characteristics are consistent with Burmese ruby". To me that indicates that they must think it is borders ruby in color? I see both red and pink in this stone, it changes with the lighting conditions.
The sapphire/ruby is set into yellow gold, the band is marked and tested 10% iridium platinum. There are two .25 carat tapered baguette diamonds on either side of the ruby, they are VVS clarity and G color.
This large gemstone has eye visible natural silk inclusions. The girdle has some light chipping and there is light abrasion wear to the facets under magnification. They can easily be polished out if wanted.
The finger size is 5 and this ring can be resized by your local bench jeweler.
