The bangles allegedly owned by Rosmah Mansor is worth more than US$500,000, according to fine jewellers Jacob & Co.

KUALA LUMPUR: The pair of bangles with 3,424 diamond stones, allegedly owned by Rosmah Mansor, is worth RM1.65 million, according to fine jewellers Jacob & Co.

In an e-mail communique to FMT, the New-York based jewellers said the price for the pair of bangles is US$540,000 (RM1.65 million).

Jacob & Co said each 18k white gold bangle is fitted with 1,712 diamond stones and weighed 137.31 grams.

“Each bangle is studded with 751 stones 30.00ct of black diamonds and 34.50ct 961 stones of fancy intense white diamonds,” the company added.

Yesterday, a pro-Pakatan Rakyat blogger published a photograph of Rosmah sporting a pair of bangles which looked strikingly similar to Jacob & Co’s “Zebra Safari” collection.

Prior to that, bloggers had claimed that Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak’s wife had acquired a diamond ring from the same jewellers, worth a whopping RM73 million.

The bloggers identified the item as a “Natural Fancy Blue Gray Cushion Cut Diamond Ring”. It had supposedly passed through the Kuala Lumpur International Airport customs in April this year.

Screenshots of the alleged customs computer displays also revealed that the ring did not have import duties imposed on it.

Yesterday, a NGO filed a report with the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Penang over the matter.
