10 Days of Tiaras - Part Two & Pink Saturday

The Burmese Ruby Tiara

The 96 rubies in this tiara were given as a gift from the Burmese people



Believing rubies to have prophylactic properties, the tiara was specially designed to protect the wearer against the 96 diseases the Burmese people believe can afflict the human body.


The diamonds are believed to have come from this Cartier-made tiara.

Since the Queen is 86 years of age and appears to be in wonderful health, maybe there is something to the power of rubies.



Joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for Pink Saturday.


The Duchess of Cambridge, The Duchess of Cornwall and Prince Charles at a Garden Party at Buckingham Palace earlier this week.

Love how Kate and Charles always seem to be enjoying each others' company.
