Kohinoor:

Kohinoor, defined as “Mountain of Light” in Persian, quite possibly is the most highly coveted diamond in the world. Discovered in the Kollur mine region of India during the 13th Century, various Indian and Persian rulers desired it for the original 186 carats and became the spoils to many gruesome battles. Most recently seized by the East India Company and transferred to the Crown Jewels of the United Kingdom when Queen Victoria was proclaimed Empress of India in 1877. Inspiration for these motifs derives from the mysterious Kohinoor itself and the exotic jewels found on the regalia and vestments worn by the sovereign of the United Kingdom. Hand-knotted from the finest, raw, hand-spun wool available, each masterpiece is painstakingly woven to perfection in rich jewel-tone colors found in the British Crown Jewels. “He who owns this diamond will own the world…” Kohinoor
