Kate Moss lost the $4,500 ring her boyfriend bought her for Christmas. The British supermodel was given the jewelry by Kills rocker Jamie Hince - who had the silver band, which has a blue stone and is supposed to have protective powers, made for her during his band's North American tour - but misplaced it just hours after receiving it.
Kate - who is believed to have spent Christmas Day with Jamie, her six-year-old daughter Lila Grace and ex-boyfriend Jefferson Hack, Lila's father - has searched all over her Cotswolds home for the missing ring but could not find it before she flew out to Thailand with Jamie and Lila.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "There was a terrible panic when Kate realized the ring had disappeared. Jamie had it made for her in Santa Fe, it is a Native American design and is meant to symbolize Kate's future happiness and Jamie's role in it."
"When Kate realized it wasn't back in its box she started scouring through bins and discarded wrapping paper looking for it. Jamie almost lost his temper when he thought they were going to miss their flight. After he got her in the car, Kate couldn't stop apologizing."
Kate, 34, is spending around a week at a five-star medical spa in Thailand, which boasts four staff to every guest and 120 different treatments in a bid to de-stress.
A source previously said: "She's in the hotel's top suite, overlooking the sea, so if this doesn't sort her out, nothing will."
"She's having stress management based on equilibropathy techniques. Here, the navel and stomach - the areas where stress, tension and negative emotions accumulate - are massaged."
On New Year's Eve, Kate, Jamie and Lila plan to see in 2009 by watching a $73,000 fireworks display from the beach.
