The Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C. has some of the world's largest and finest Ruby gemstones. This gemstone displays a richly saturated red colour combined with exceptional transparency. The stone was mined from the Mogok region of Burma (now Myanmar) in the 1930s.
Until the late 1800s, Diamonds were among the rarest gemstones on the planet. Due to their incredible hardness, coupled with the belief that cutting them would reduce their magical powers, they were often not faceted. In fact, it was not until the 1400s that the first rudimentary facets were being applied to the gem. Then, in the late 1800s, everything began to change with the discovery of Diamonds in South Africa. Through huge marketing campaigns by the owners of these new deposits, the new kid on the gem block went from being fairly unknown, to unquestionably the global leader within half a century.
White Gold is an alloy of Gold and at least one white metal (usually nickel, Silver, or Palladium). White gold is usually enhanced with Rhodium plating. To preserve this plating, avoid swimming in your jewellery as chlorine, in particular, can cause faster degradation. Chlorine is present in small amounts in tap water, so it is best to avoid getting your jewellery wet where possible. It is a simple matter to have items re-plated.
