Tiffany & Co. Untreated Burmese Ruby Ring


This Art Deco ring by Tiffany & Co. features a rare, untreated ruby from Burma, widely considered by global connoisseurs to be the most prized origin for rubies. In the 1920s, Tiffany & Co. mounted this vivid red ruby among colorless diamonds and lines of calibré-cut rubies. In skillfully minimizing the platinum mount, Tiffany & Co. jewelers made the pure geometry of the gems and the design unite into a brilliant statement of the Art Deco aesthetic.
