We regret that this item is not available at this time.
Bejewel Like an Heiress: Renowned for its nearly flawless clarity, rare deep blue color and eventful history, this regal and versatile Hope Diamond Pin/Pendant is an exquisite adaptation of the original, donated to the Smithsonian in 1958 by jeweler Harry Winston. Its stunning 45.52 carat center stone is custom-cut from European glass. The pear-shaped and cushion-cut diamond surround is reprised by fifteen cubic zirconia. Rhodium-plated brass setting.
Gems accumulate history. The very stone that once adorned a king or queen might today be set in someone’s cocktail ring. (The history of the Hope Diamond includes a stint in the French Crown Jewels, a daring theft, two recuttings, and purchase by an English king.) The astonishing replica collections presented on these next pages—a mere sampling of the extraordinary holdings in our National Museum of Natural History’s National Gem Collection—let you dazzle in their reflected glory.
