Story of Rare Diamonds
by: the P. C. Chandra Group
For centuries, diamonds have continued to enamour us. Some consider diamonds as a good luck charm while others think of it as a
status symbol. Some again love diamonds as they are excruciatingly beautiful.
Each diamond leaves behind a trail of history lingering behind it. This book aims to shed light on some of the interesting stories that lie behind the discoveries of the world’s most renowned diamonds.
The demands of India, Pakistan, and Iran, about the ownership of the Koh-i-noor Diamond, the cursed history of the Hope
Diamond, or the romantic memories attached to the Taylor-Burton Diamond — all these, and more will whet the appetite of the readers who are intrigued with diamonds and the ones yet to be.
This book recounts the facts and the stories of all the world renowned diamonds. The facts describe what their weight is, how they were discovered, where they were mined, who cut them, how many facets they have, where they are currently located, etc. The stories on the other hand talks about how the diamonds changed hands, or the personalities linked with particular diamonds.
On P. C. Chandra’s 7th anniversary, ‘Story of the Rare Diamonds’ is a gift to their readers to enchant them with magical stories of the diamond.
A storehouse of knowledge about rare stones, diamonds and jewels, P.C. Chandra Jewellers’ aim was to share their knowledge with everyone. Thus was conceptualized the book, whose each page tell the story of exquisite stones, old and new, from all around the globe. Their history, origin, make, carat, date of discovery and their current location are all given in great detail. Apart from this, the book also informs about the parameters of judging the exquisite diamonds.
