Now move further to the Diamond Fund of Kremlin to deepen your knowledge of Russian history, whilst exploring the Diamond Fund: a unique collection of Russian jewellers of the 18-20th centuries. The exhibition includes items of gold and platinum, a collection of precious stones and other historical treasuries, Tsars' regalia, the crown of the Russian Empire, Russian and foreign medals, huge gold and platinum bars, giant diamonds and numerous pieces of fine jewellery. The collection was founded by Peter I, who was of the opinion that the most significant precious items should belong to the state, not to the Tsar's family. Originally, the jewels were kept in the Winter Palace and during World War I and were later carried over to the Kremlin. The permanent exhibition in the Kremlin was opened in 1967.
In two quiet and small rooms with velvet carpets the following will open to you in all their splendor:
• The Great Imperial Crown adorned with 5 000 diamonds of different size and made in the 18th century for the coronation of Catherine the Great.
• Seven “Historic Stones”, among which:
- Orlov Diamond, a nearly 190-carat completely transparent and pure stone that decorates the Imperial gold scepter.
- Shah Diamond, in ancient times known as the Prince’s Stone. This nearly 90-carat perfectly pure crystal can tell its own story thanks to the Arabic inscriptions graved on it.
- Table Portrait Diamond, the largest existing flat stone of 25 carat in the world. Cut in India, it now adorns a massive golden bracelet with the image of an Emperor.
- Ceylonese Sapphire, a magnificent 260-carat deep-blue stone, decorating a 19th-century brooch.
• A collection of extraordinary large uncut diamonds – there are over 900 stones!
• 18th and 19th century absolutely stunning decorative jewelry, including diamond, sapphire and ruby brooches, bracelets, earrings and diadems as well as a collection of the 20th century jewelry made specifically for the Russian Diamond Fund by the order of the Soviet government.
• Collection of Platinum and Gold nuggets, many of which have a name. An attentive visitor can easily find Camel, Boot, Horse Head and Mephisto nuggets and the Big Triangle – the biggest gold nugget of 36 kg found in Russia.
