Modern Crown fit for a Queen!

Ostensibly designed to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, the unveiling of a blue crown a mere twenty-four hours after Manchester City snatched the Premiership diadem from the jaws of Manchester United would seem to better reflect the seismic shift that has occurred in football this season than the Queen’s illustrious sixty year reign.

De Beers, of course, will admit to no such ludicrous coincidence. This is a crown fit for a queen, outfitted in De Beer blue and studded with 974 diamonds, of which 797 are polished and 177 are rough. The centrepiece is a gut-wrenchingly beautiful uncut 73 carat diamond, which the jewellers happened to have lying around in a vault in France.
