    Martin Katz founded his jewellery house in Beverly Hills, California in 1988. He is known as 'jeweller to the Hollywood stars' having jewelled the Hollywood Elite for red carpet premieres and award ceremonies for the past 25 years. Celebrities who have appeared in the master jeweller’s signature micro-pavé pieces include Nicole Kidman, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston. Katz's high level of craftsmanship, together with his love for rare and important gemstones, have afforded him the reputation of being one of the most innovative American jewellers of the 21st century. The present lot comprises a natural, unheated Burmese ruby which has been certified by the Gübelin Gem Laboratory as being of Pigeon’s Blood hue, unarguably the most sought after designation of colour which is reserved for only a small percentage of Burmese rubies. Its colour, combined with the high transparency of the ruby, make it truly rare gemstone to possess.
