18.18-Carat Natural Unheated Burmese Mogo “Pigeon’s Blood” Ruby and Diamond Ring
Estimate: HK$ 7,500,000 – 9,500,000/US$ 962,000 – 1,218,000
Natural Burmese rubies are usually smaller in size, so those of 5 carats or more are difficult to come by. Over the past decade, superior-quality Burmese rubies in an impressive size are extremely rare in the auction market, which makes this one a true wonder of nature. Surrounded by vibrant white diamonds weighing approximately 9.65 carats, the irresistible fiery ruby, displaying the most desirable crimson hue, is a true representation of opulence.

Estimate: HK$ 6,500,000 – 9,500,000/US$ 833,300 – 1,218,000
Emeralds that originate from Colombia’s famed Muzo mines are the rarest and are often celebrated for its vibrant green hue. This highly-coveted quality is known as “oil drop” by the locals, pointing at a hue so rich and saturated, as if oil could drip from it. At 13.56 carats, this emerald is proudly sourced from Muzo and is free of any oil enhancements. It is endowed with a mesmerizing green shade and unrivalled clarity, making it an outstanding piece that deserves pride of place in any private collection.
