Description:Ruby from Burma is one of the most highly sought after gems in the world. This is a great set of "Round" cut Rubies that are well matched in color with a purplish-pink hue. The clarity of the stones ranges from very very slightly included to nearly eye clean. These gems could be used in a variety of ways, from replacing stones that might have fallen out of jewelry, to building a custom ring, or pendant and earrings set. With the prices being paid for top Rubies these days, it is a reminder that this most classic of gems still commands a premium value on the market. Considering that this set is priced at JUST OVER $30 PER CARAT, how can you go wrong? These are absolutely some of the best Rubies from Southeast Asia, and with embargo implemented by the United States government states that there will NOT be ANY of these Rubies imported to U.S. soil after September 30, 2008. Now that the embargo has gone into effect, one can only purchase gems that were imported prior to the embargo. From now on, these Burmese Rubies will be very difficult to obtain. Buy this gem now because they will be disappearing from the market rapidly. I am told that the Ruby embargo may now be lifted, but I haven't found any confirmation on this.
