Top-quality Burmese rubies are the standard by which the world’s production is judged. A record selling price for ruby was set at Christie’s in St. Moritz on February 15, 2009, when an 8.62 carat cushion-cut ruby realized a price of $425,000 per carat. This record-breaking gemstone was termed the desired “pigeon’s blood” red used for highly sought rubies from Myanmar. Photo courtesy of Christie’s.

That’s about 5 years ago, guess how much such piece would be today
