The Origin of Jade and Ruby Necklaces

Sterling Canyon will be offering fine Jade and Ruby necklaces and earrings in the coming months, and the Burmese government has just concluded its sale of these fine gemstones to the international market.  According to National Jeweler, more than 22,000 lots of jade, 282 lots of gems and 355 lots of pearls were put on sale by state-owned enterprises, and around 750 private companies participated in the sale, which was held July 1-13 in the country’s capital of Naypyitaw.  The United States has banned Burmese Rubies and other gemstones from entering this country because of their human rights abuses.  However, as many of us know, gemstones can be “laundered” to show that the country of origin is somewhere else.



The average jewelry customer doesn’t care where the necklace or earring set comes from.  It is up to the retail jeweler to find that out.  Sterling Canyon does all it can to assure that the jewelry it offers comes from legal sources.  We never offer jewelry made in China or India.  The United States and Europe are the designer sources of the fine jewelry we offer.  After all, the best doesn’t have to be illegal.
