Pearls were one of the first gems to be highly valued by man.
Fresh out of the shell, a pearl could be worn and admired without any polishing, fashioning or cutting.
Because of their mysterious creation in the body of a mollusc in a shell, early civilizations attributed magical powers to Pearls.
Pearls are a timeless Gem, highly treasured across all communities, countries and cultures, probably because they are formed by one of nature’s most miraculous methods of creation.
Ruby Gemstones are part of the corundum family.
The best source is reportedly Burma, however it is also mined in Sri Lanka, Afghanistan, Kenya, Madagascar and Thailand.
Ruby Gemstones are made of Aluminum Oxide and Chromium; they melt at 2,050 degrees C and their hardness (resistance to scratching) is 9 on the Moh’s scale, making them one of the hardness Gemstones discovered.
However, what makes Ruby Gemstones so desirable is their seductive colour and rarity.
