From this website comes the following background info on the Thai Princes Ring: http:\/\/forever-joy.com\/jewelry.aspx

The nine gems, usually consisting of diamond, ruby, emerald, yellow sapphire, garnet, onyx, moonstone, zircon and tiger's eye, have been considered as auspicious gems appropriate for the decoration of the King who is bestowed with august power and whose benevolence is limitless.

The “nine-gems” (Nop-pa-kao in Thai), or more commonly known as the “Thai Princess” rings have been part of Thai jewelry tradition since the long history of Thailand. It has become more popular especially to the western world since the 1940’s. The older pieces were made of gold. The traditional nine-gem, Thai Princess ring usually features eight pear-shaped gemstones (ruby, emerald, yellow sapphire, garnet, onyx, moonstone, zircon and tiger's eye) and nineteen round-cut white sapphires or diamonds (which have later been replaced with different kinds of gemstones). These genuine gemstones are set on a fancy princess setting, which makes the ring unique and truly stunning.
