The Re-cut Koh-i-noor Diamond, 1852 Featured 21 Jul 2008 Print

The Re-cut Koh-i-noor Diamond, 1852

Engraving of the re-cut Koh-i-noor ('mountain of light') diamond, 1852. Previously owned by the Mogul emperors, the Persian Shahs and Ranjit Singh, the Lion of the Punjab, it was presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company in 1850. The diamond was displayed at the Great Exhibition of 1851, where various experts felt it displayed insufficient fire. It was decided therefore to recut the stone. This was undertaken by Guillaume Coster, over 38 days, in 1852 to produce a round diamond of 108 carats (shown in the image). In 1937 the diamond was placed in a crown to be worn by Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother at the Coronation of King George VI. The crown and diamond now reside at the Tower of London

A man spins Prosecco wine in the Valdobbiadene valley, northern Italy, in this file photo taken July 4, 2008. Prosecco production has grown to 150 million bottles from 5 million a year in 40 years driven by demand for exports to Germany and the United States. Now it aims to increase production to 250 million bottles, the level of champagne, the world's leading bubbly made in France. Gianluca Bisol has great expectations for the white sparkling wine his family has been making since 1542 in the Valdobbiadene and Conegliano regions north of Venice. A 22nd-generation prosecco producer, he is hoping an economic slowdown may help his fizz gain ground over pricier champagne.
