A gorgeous matched pair of impressive size.  This is the very popular 'cinnamon' color variety of Sri Lankan Hessonite - a rich red-orange-brown shade that is quite attractive.  Gems are quite well matched, both in proportion and color and are both clean, save for the typical 'scotch in water' effect, though even that is minimal and not at all distracting.  No worries about these being overly dark either, they are bright and brilliant.  It is very difficult to find this quality in larger sizes.  Additionally, any natural gem material that can make a fine pair in excess of 10 carats is scarce in today's market.  The largest, best pair we have had.
