A Burmese “Sunrise Ruby” from Myanmar, part of a collection of Cartier jewels up for auction, exceeded estimates that ranged from $12 million to $18 million. After competitive bidding on Tuesday, the “pigeon blood” ruby went to an anonymous telephone bidder. It set a record for a ruby and was also a record for a Cartier jewel at auction.
