List of Diamonds

A number of large or extraordinary diamonds have gained fame, both as exquisite examples of the beautiful nature of diamonds, and because of the famous people who wore, bought, and sold them. These diamonds are often depicted in marketing materials aimed at the retail diamond customer. Some of the very famous diamonds are listed below.

1-Darya-e-Noor : The largest pink diamond in the world, about 186 carats (36.4 g), part of
Iranian Crown Jewels. Its exact weight isn't known and 186 carats is an estimate.
2-Tiffany Yellow Diamond: Antique modified cushion-shaped stellar brilliant cut, on display at Tiffany & Co.'s New York City store.
3-Koh-i-Noor: A 105 carat (21.6 g) white of Indian origin, with a long and turbulent history and a good deal of legend surrounding it. After belonging to various Mughal and Persian rulers, it was taken away from the Maharaja Duleep Singh of Lahore and was presented to Queen Victoria during the British occupation of India, and is now part of the Crown of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
