The first authorised account of the history of some of the finest diamond jewellery in the world.

This book tells the story of the magnificent royal inheritance of diamonds from the time of Queen Adelaide in the 1830s to the present day. Illustrated with a wealth of archive material as well as extensive new photography of the jewels, this important publication includes stones of international importance as well as items of great historic significance, and will be a standard work of reference on diamond jewellery for many years to come.

Hugh Roberts was Director of the Royal Collection and Surveyor of The Queen’s Works of Art from 1996 to 2010.
