The Timur Ruby is kept in a special room 40 feet below
Buckingham Palace. This closely guarded vault, about
half the size of a football pitch, contains all the
Queen of England’s personal jewelry: the total value
of which is a cool $57 million. The Timur Ruby’s journey
to the British ‘Crown Jewels’ was accompanied by another
infamous gemstone, which now features in the Queen’s
jewelry inventory: The Koh-I-Noor diamond.
