Question

Hi everyone. I have a question about brunei treasures.
I know Brunei is very rich country, so brunei monarchy can own/make expensive jewels; or they could have them by heritage.
My question: are they the only reasons ... or does Brunei own gold/diamond mines?
Thanks.

Hers was the only bouquet I'd ever seen made purely of jewels! It was magnificient and very ostentatious.

as far as I know their wealth comes from oil. You might want to ask this question in the Royalty of Brunei thread. There are some very knowledgeable members there who'll definately answer your question.

Nice pics Humera..she has a nice smile. Although she is quite average looking, even plain - she knows how to use makeup to look good. Out of all the royal women, Datin Faezah dresses best.

Yes I agree. When I first saw her, I thought her very attractive. I still do. But I think you're right that she knows how to dress and use makeup to her best advantage. She's certainly very elegant.

Royal Look-alike

Here is a recent pcture of Datin Jula, sister of Prince Sufri's wife, Datin Faezah. They look very alike, almost close enough to be twins. Although D. Faezah would not be seen dressed like that , now she is a member of the Brunei royal family.

Thanx for this pic Zina.
Was she also at the CP's wedding? I do remember seeing a picture of a woman who looked remarkably like Datin Faezah. I'll post it here soon...
btw...I know this isn't jewellery related but is Datin a royal title?

Datin is not really a royal title - it's equivalent to "Lady" perhaps. It's a title given to a lady who is married to a "Dato" or "Datuk". Lots of ladies here in Brunei are Datins. It's a high class title, but not royal.

I dont know if Datin Jula was at CP's wedding..but this picture of her was taken at the recent Grand Prix Race in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
