UPDATE! Smithsonian Ruby Ring from Burma

Posted in diamonds, Ring, Rubies by kayemlin on July 26, 2010

Hey Guys,

I’m so sorry I haven’t been updating as frequently as I would have liked to. I’ve been beyond busy, but I promise that I’ll update my blog as much as I can. I was working and going to museums this week- and I found one juicy story! In one of the Smithsonian museums in DC, there is a Burmese 20.3 kt ruby- given by one of the CEOs of Subway to the Smithsonian.( I’m trying to get my hands on it ASAP to get a news story out of it!)

It is a ruby and diamond ring, and it is very sentimental in value. The CEO’s wife had passed away and so he had donated the ring to the Smithsonian – saying that it is something to admire and America should have this beauty of a gem.

Ruby Ring- Blair Waldorf Style

Posted in Blair Waldorf, Gossip Girl, Ring, Rubies by kayemlin on July 14, 2010

Blair Waldorf always wears a ruby ring, and the one stone I love more than the all the others is a ruby. Because I come from the land of rubies, Burma also known as Myanmar, ruby stones will always have a special place in my heart- it comes from my home.

I’m not wearing a ruby ring, simply because Blair Waldorf wears one,  although it has become such a major plus… she is after all a fashion icon, I am wearing a ruby ring because I think they are just utter delight.

I know they say that a diamond is a girl’s best friend, but a ruby is just as good a friend and as appealing in my eyes. What’s your favorite stone?
