Welcome To Phoo Wa Gems & Jewellery
Phoo Wa Gems and Jewellery, a shop in Yangon's Bogyoke Aung San Market. The shop's single display case is packed with loose stones. Rubies sit beside jade, sapphires beside diamonds. Ko Min Htut Aung, the shop's owner, says his mother opened its doors before he was born; his fate as a gem trader was never in question.
Myanmar rubies are arguably the best in the world. The precious resource is inseparable from the Myanmar identity. The rubies of Mogok ( pronounced mo-go ), the famed vallery of rubies, have probably played a major role in each of Myanmar's political transformations from the squabbles of ancient Kings to the imperialism of th British to the present.
No. ( 152, 153, 155 & 92 ), Central Arcade, Bogyoke Aung San Market , Pabedan Township, Yangon, Myanmar .
