Our DarlingMany people mention Royal Coster Diamonds and the Koh-I-Noor in the same sentence. Why is that? Upon its arrival in England in 1849, the diamond weighed 186 carats. In 1852, the British Royal House decided they wanted the most expensive diamond in the world repolished. Prince Albert, Queen Victoria’s regent, approached Royal Coster Diamonds for this noble task. Even back then, our expertise and craftsmanship where already well-noticed. Because our task to polish this famous diamond was so extraordinary, we dedicated more than just this article about it.

Royal Coster Diamonds recut the Koh-i-Noor to about 108.93 carats so the Royals could also wear it a bit more easily. Queen Victoria mostly wore the diamond in a brooch. Later it was set in the State Crown, worn by Queen Alexandra and Queen Mary.
