Astral Gems has created a truly precious memento to honor our beloved King Rama IX by producing the Thai numerical 9 as a ‘Nopparat’, consisting of nine gems namely Diamond, Ruby, Moonstone, Red Coral, Hessonite, Blue Sapphire, Cat’s Eye, Yellow Sapphire and Emerald.
“There are many non-precious mementos on the market today, but we wanted to create one that was truly unique and fit for our belated King Rama IX”, said Mr. Richard Shaw Brown, renowned gemologist and founder of the company. “In emphasizing the auspicious number 9, we decided to design the brooch and pendant as a Nopparat, using nine 90% clean precious stones adorned with 19 smaller diamonds. The pieces come in either 90% (21K) gold or white gold, and is individually serial numbered and rests in a wooden box with a matching certificate of authenticity”, he added.
Perfect as gifts, the larger size brooch, size 1.2 inches, costs THB 35,000, a smaller size brooch of 1 inch costs THB 25,000, and the pendant, which comes in only one size, costs THB 15,000.
