An elegant round ‘Aarsi’ ring, over 80 years old, embellished with diamond polkis at the center an inner circle, on a slate of natural Burmese rubies. Green enamel and cultured Basra pearls are spread over two circular patterns surrounding the ring, all beautifully held with a gold ring shank. All setting atop the ring is 22K gold, while the ring is 18K gold. 

The Aarsi ring was a traditional piece of Mughal bridal jewellery that consisted of a large, embellished ring with a slight reflective stone setting in the centre. The idea behind the ring was to provide the bride and groom an opportunity to be able to discreetly look at one another. 

Polki is a diamond in its most natural form—uncut, unfaceted, and unpolished. The diamond does not undergo several stages of processing to take on its ultimate shape as polished diamonds do. These diamonds are used in their natural form without any physical or chemical treatment. 

Burmese Rubies, a precious subset within the corundum family, stand as the epitome of rarity and value. Their hues span from delicate pinks to intense pigeon blood red, a shade deemed the pinnacle of ruby excellence. Renowned for their exquisite beauty, enduring durability, and scarcity, the primary determinant of a ruby's worth lies in the quality of its color. The demand for gem-grade Burmese Rubies has remained steadfast throughout history, with mining records tracing back nearly five centuries in Burma. These rubies adorned the collections of Maharajas and Royal Dynasties during the illustrious Mughal era, securing their place as prized possessions of unparalleled allure and significance.
