The Koh-I-Noor is one of the most fascinating, well-documented diamonds in history. It has been owned by the crowns of what now constitutes India, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Iran, and England. The historic form was recut in 1852 into the oval offered here. To most non-Americans, this is considered the most famous diamond in the world. This replica is created from numerous sources, most notably Diamond Cuts in Historic Jewelry, 1381-1910, Herbert Tillander, 1995.
