Tiffany Yellow Diamond
Additional recommended knowledge
Discovered in South Africa in 1877, the stone was purchased by New York jeweler Charles Tiffany. His gemologist, George Frederick Kunz studied the gem for a year before beginning to cut it; reducing it from 287 carats (57.4 g) to its current size. The cutting was carried out in Paris. Kunz was a mere 23 years old at the time.
The gem was on loan from Tiffany & Co. to the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington D.C. and was on display until 23 September, 2007.
