Washington. President George W. Bush's foreign policies may be unpopular in the Middle East, but Arab leaders showered his top diplomat with jewelry. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice raked in at least $316,000 in gem-encrusted baubles which included a ruby and diamond necklace with earrings ($165,000) and a flower petal motif necklace ($170,000) from King Abdullah bin Abdul Aziz al-Saud of Saudi Arabia.
