In 1853 Queen Elizabeth called upon Royal Coster Diamonds to repolish the famous the Koh-I-Noor Diamond. This was the largest diamond ever found and its name means ‘Mountain of Light’. Once you see the Crown at our polishing area, you will understand why the stone was named like that. It is on display and the centerpiece of a large collection of famous diamonds we have. Other diamonds such as the Cullinan diamond, the Rembrandt and many, many more.
Besides seeing amazing diamond jewelry and Europe’s largest collection of unset diamonds, you will also see the Royal 201 diamond. This is Royal Coster’s own patented diamond and known to be the best diamond in the world. A regular brilliant has 57 facets, while our unique diamond cut has no less than 201 facets. These extra facets cause to make the light reflect even more within the diamond. This creates a sparkling effect that is no match for any other diamond shape in the world.
