Famous Pink Diamonds
There have been many books written about the world's largest and most famous diamonds. Because they have usually been owned by the wealthiest or most powerful people, information about them is not always easy to get. Some of the most famous diamonds have not been seen for centuries, and are believed to have been stolen, gone missing, been recut, and possibly re-appeared many years later. Any list of the world's largest and most famous diamonds can therefore never be quite accurate or up to date. We have extracted the information below about famous pink diamonds from a number of sources. We will add to it whenever we hear about other large or famous pink diamonds.
A Select List
The list of large and famous pink diamonds is necessarily quite short, because of their extreme rarity. Of the 75 largest known diamonds, only four are pink. Probably the best known is the Jennifer Lopez diamond, so it appears on our list. Another very famous pink diamond is the legendary Pink Panther Diamond from the film of the same name.
