    Can you tell us how the Taylor Burton Diamond, The Sancy Diamond and many more killed their masters?

    The Hope Diamond was not resized by Evelyn Walsh McClean to suit her taste. The diamond was part of the Order of the Gold Fleece (the French Crown Jewels). It was stolen in France and resurfaced years later at an Exposition in London in its reduced size.

    # 5 was never given to Kremlin! It has nothing to do with Soviets. It was presented to the czar of Russia as a redemption for the death of the diplomat and a great Russian playwright Alexander Griboyedov, long before the revolution. 🙂

    #4 says this diamond 'is an important addition to the Crown Jewels of Iran' but the next sentence states, 'this diamond was discovered in India, and it has remained there, in the ownership of mughal emperors.' Did you mean it's part of the crown jewels of India?

    Interesting article, overall. Would've liked more background story on the 'curse' part of the diamonds' histories, though.

    Interestingly it seems somewhere or other all the diamonds are some how linked to India.

    It would not be wrong to call India as one of the richest country in the ancient times, which now harbour more than 100 mn poors, what and time twist for india.

    How about the "Patiala Haar" the magnificent dimanod necklace.

    I would like to know the price of The Star Of Africa. just to know if I can buy it to my girl.
    if not, I would like to buy the Hope to prove that I can break the grudge that haunts it.

    You messed up the numericals on the owners of the Hope Diamond. Louis XV owned it first, then Louis XVI. After that, I believe Napoleon's wife had it for a time before Mr. Hope acquired it.

      We had Louis XVI as the first owner, which is incorrect. It was Louis XIV (source :http://history1900s.about.com/od/1950s/a/hopediamond.htm). This has been changed.
