A Passion for Rubies

A Passion for Rubies

«An exceptional treasure of nature due to its fluorescence, extraordinary clarity and vivid red hue, known as “pigeon blood”, a color traditionally only associated with Burmese rubies,» was how the Estrela de Fura ruby (Star of Fura in Portuguese) was described by experts at the time of its exceptional discovery last July 2022 in the Fura Gems ruby mine in Montepeuz, Mozambique.

Over the course of last winter, this extraordinary gemstone - weighing an impressive 101 carats - was cut and faceted by a team of craftsmen who transformed it into a beautiful 55.22-carat specimen. And it is in this new form that Estrela de Fura is getting ready to surpass The Sunrise Ruby, a 25.59-carat ruby of Burmese origin, which sold at auction for $30.3 million ($1,185,451 per carat) at Sotheby's in Geneva in 2015, and which still holds the world auction record for a ruby.

The world of gems and collectors is waiting to discover its destiny, which will be fulfilled on 8th June in New York during the Sotheby's Magnificent auction.

At the event, we rediscover the passion for a fascinating gemstone that has always been associated with qualities such as vitality, courage, and love.

Crivelli expands its chromatic power through one-of-a-kind pieces of enourmous aesthetic impact, such as a band ring in white gold, white diamonds and rubies with a central oval ruby, or ribbon bracelets in white or burnished white gold with white and dark diamonds and rubies.

Fabergé renews its regal beauty with creations that interpret tradition in a contemporary style.

Falcinelli makes it into the stone of love in precious compositions to be worn casually on a daily basis.
