  • Most Famous & Most Expensive Diamonds

Since the dawn of times, people have always been attracted to beautiful, mystified and rare objects.

Sounds a bit dramatic but wars have started for less (unfortunately).

This is probably why many inquire about the most famous diamonds in the world as well as the most expensive diamonds in the world. When you come to think of that, unsurprisingly, both lists are exactly the same!

Below you'll find a list that we constantly update with these special and rare beauties. One might thing that such a list doesn't change that often but the fact is that in recent years due to the constant increase in prices of natural colored diamonds, records are broken quite often and naturally the "new" most expensive diamond immediately becomes also one of the most famous ones.

A great example would be the latest "official" most expensive diamond the Blue Moon Diamond that was sold only November 16th 2015 for the astounding amount of $48.5 Million!

With no further delay we present you the list of:
