Mangala Royally Auspicious Collection, 2007

The definitive collection of the Thai King's Official Symbol - Sri Navaratna, the Nine Sacred Gems was revealed to the world on December 1st, 2006 at the Four Seasons Hotel's Grand Ballroom in Bangkok.

Astral Gemstone Talisman’s (AGT’s) designer Richard Shaw-Brown II just completed his 9th collection of precious jewelry – Mangala – Royally Auspicious – 2007. He created this collection as an accolade to 9 generations of the Chakri Dynasty and specifically dedicated it to Bhumibol Adulyadej (Rama 9 Maharaja).

This year Brown focuses exclusively on the Nine-Gems Navaratna because it is the “Official Symbol of the King” in Thailand and instantly recognizable as Sacrosanct and Royal in all SE Asian nations (regardless of religion). And AGT’s singular creations exalt the Nine-Gems Talisman in an exquisitely Royal manner: with flawless Ruby as the heart of each design.

Always one for favorable numerology, Richard explains, "I was inspired to make this precious-jewelry collection the best ever in honor of Rama 9 to commemorate His Majesty's 60th year on the Kingdom of Thailand's Throne. And this year the numbers are right. You see, 2+0+0+7 = 9
