The most famous diamonds have some of the most infamous histories associated with them all throughout history. They have generated World wide recognition because of the mysteries surrounding them.
Below is a small list representing some of the World’s most famous diamonds that cost millions. This list forms the basis for my own personal preference and my favourites.
Heading the list of my favourite diamonds is a diamond that is said to be inestimable. It is known as the ‘Mountain of Light’ or by its’ original name of Koh-i-Noor. It once had the prestigious distinction of being the largest diamond in the world at 105 carats or 21.6g.
The Koh-i-Noor had a wide variety of owners throughout history, from Sikhs to Persian rulers who fought many battles over it. Its origins is said to be in India at Golconda, but it finally settled in the British Crown Jewels in 1877. However, this was not before it received the fame of being mysteriously cursed. Maybe it is the mysterious nature of this diamond that appeals to me and to so many others throughout history.
