Mittig zwischen diesen 2 rosa Punkten, hingen 6 von den raresten und feinsten farbigen Diamanten der Welt.

Beginnend mit einem 9,6-Karat dunklen rosa Diamanten, gefolgt von einem 26,26 Karat Azure blauen Diamanten und einem anderen intensiv rosa Diamanten von 22,97 Karats. Jaques Cartier nannte diesen Stein den besten existierenden rosa Diamanten,einzigartig und unbeschreiblich.
Die drei Mittelteile bestanden aus der "Queen of Holland und einem oliv-grünem Brilliant von 12,86 Karats, im Orginal ein ovaler Stein von 17,5 Karats, ehemals im Besitz des Nizam of Hyderabad. Darauf folgt zum Schluss ein rautenförmig,hell rosa Diamant von 15,62 Karat.

The large diamond is the Queen of Holland

The Maharajah of Nawanagar purchased the Queen of Holland and Cartier set it as the centerpiece of the pendant to the magnificent ceremonial necklace* of the Prince. Jacques Cartier, who assembled the necklace, referred to it as "a really superb realization of a connoisseur's dream."

Cartier eventually bought the diamond from the Maharajah's family and sent it to their London branch in 1960. 30 years later, it was sold for a reported $7,000,000. The Queen of Holland is now owned by Robert Mouawad.

There are differing opinions concerning the origin of this 135.92-carats cushion-cut diamond. The Dutch firm F. Friedman & Co. cut it into its present shape in 1904. They owned it for several years, exhibiting it at the 1925 Paris Exhibition of Arts and Industry. The Dutch sovereign from whom the stone takes its name was Queen Wilhelmina, who reigned from 1890 to 1948.

This suggests the possibility that the Queen of Holland was mined in South Africa, but nothing is known of the diamond's earlier history until it arrived in Amsterdam at a time when numerous South African diamonds were finding their way there. Yet there are experts who think that the Queen of Holland is a typical Golconda stone.

He himself had a hand in assembling it, a process of serveral years duration in the late 1920/30s...to collect the stones for..........this `Ìmperial and world-famous jewel

The ceremonial necklace| Nawanagar Diamonds

Jaques Cartier calles this stone the finest pink diamond existing, adding that it had once graced. Thee centerpiece, the "Queeen of Holland diamond, and then a rare, olive-green brilliant of 12,86 carats, Orginally an oval stone of 17,5 carats, which was said to have belonged to the Nizam of Hyderabad.
