Diamonds are forever

We love our diamonds at the coronet collection and we have produced some beautiful pieces over the years, but we are still in awe of the fabulous Cullinan Diamond.
The famous Cullinan diamond was found in South Africa in 1905 and weighed an amazing 3,106 ct. It was cut into a total of 105 diamonds of exceptional colour and clarity.
The Great Star of Africa (Cullinan I) weighs 530.20 ct. and the Lesser Star of Africa (Cullinan II) weighs 317.40 ct. These two diamonds are part of the crown jewels.
Cullinan III through Cullinan IX, and the remaining 96 diamonds cut from the Cullinan are in private collections.
The two largest stones are mounted in the crown jewels, while eight others are part of the Queen’s private collection.

The sparkle of a diamond says it all.
