Adore Gems & Timepieces - - SCOOP -

Christie’s Hong Kong Mag­nif­i­cent Jew­els sale in De­cem­ber 2015 saw the Crim­son Flame, an ex­cep­tion­ally rare 15.04-ct Burmese pi­geon’s blood ruby that held an es­ti­mate of US$15 mil­lion, go for $18 mil­lion. The cush­ion-shaped gem­stone in the rare pi­geon’s blood red hue is mounted on a white gold ring with sur­round­ing smaller cush­ion­shaped white di­a­monds. This spec­tac­u­lar piece is by far the most im­por­tant pi­geon’s blood ruby to be auc­tioned in Asia, set­ting a world auc­tion record of $1.2 mil­lion per carat.
