Top best answers to the question «Where do most of myanmar's gems come from»
- Gemstones from Myanmar. 90% of the world's rubies come from Myanmar. The best known Burmese rubies include an 8-carat ruby that was fashioned into a ring by Van Cleef & Arpels and given as a Christmas gift to Elizabeth Taylor by Richard Burton in 1968, who told her that he had waited for the most perfect ruby in the world.
- “If you see jewellery that says ‘made in Thailand’ or ‘made in Hong Kong,’ those gemstones could come from Myanmar,” said Erin Murphy, an industry consultant and former gemstone advisor in the Obama administration. Myanmar used to be known as Burma, and its most coveted gemstones still use the name.
