Only a happy few get to own a super diamond. The Koh-I-Noor – Persian for ‘Mountain of Light’ – is one of the most well-known and most beautiful diamonds in the world. Currently valued at ‘priceless’. The 109 ct diamond is not the biggest in the world but it does speak to one’s imagination. Originally from India, it has a very rich history.

In 1304 it was in the possession of the Radja of Malwa. Many believed the owner of the Koh-I-Noor diamond to be the most powerful man in the world. At the same time, other believed the diamond to bring bad luck. And so, in 1739 general Nadir Sjah, astutely came into possession of the diamond en brought it to Persia. The Koh-I-Noor would remain there until 1849, until the English conquered Persia and offered its treasure to their Queen, Queen Victoria. This diamond has been a part of the British Crown Jewellery until today. To emphasize its brilliance, the diamond has been re-cut in 1852 from its original 186 ct to its current 109 ct. India and Pakistan still claim to be the rightful owners of this diamond and demand the British return the diamond to them.
