Pigeon Blood Red Rubies

The Term: "Pigeon Blood"Pigeon Blood Red Ruby


The term “Pigeon blood” has originated in Burma. The local people referred to the finest hue of ruby as “Pigeon's Blood" (ko-twe) although the term may be of Chinese origin. It is said that the color of the Ruby which is Pigeon Blood Red is comparable to the first two drops of blood from the nose of a killed pigeon. Some have compared this color to the center of a live pigeon's eye. Others compare it to the seed of pomegranate, or a fine red without any blue tones. Even though the term “Blood Red” remains vague, it always refers to the most vibrant color a ruby can come in. Most gemological labs use spectrophotometers to define the colors of rubies and hence, the term “Pigeon Blood Red” remains only a general term for consumers. The most sought after and prized color today can be compared to that of a traffic signal which glows and is vibrant and does not have any overtones of blue, violet or purple and is not over-colored looking blackish.
