Bulgari Burmese No-Heat Ruby and Diamond Clip Earrings
Set with large cabochon Burmese rubies and diamonds, these 1960s clip earrings were created by Bulgari. Each omega clip-back earring is set with a high domed oval Burma ruby cabochon, each weighing over 8.50 carats, framed by round brilliant-cut diamonds interspersed with an outer edge of diamond melee, and the rubies are accompanied by a report from Gübelin laboratories stating Burma origin. Set in a sparkling surround of fine diamonds, these gems are gorgeous, wearable jewels, and make an important addition to any collection of stones of significant historic origin.

Fine cabochon Burma rubies over five carats are only occasionally seen in the market due to a number of factors, including the relative rarity of the element chromium, and how infrequently the correct conditions existed in geologic history for this particular species of gem to form. Matched untreated Burma rubies of size are rare.
