The Golden Jubilee Diamond is currently the largest cut diamond in the world. It was found in 1985 as a rough stone of 755.5 carat in the Premier mine, South Africa – one of the most famous diamond mines in the world operated by De Beers.
The stone was cut into a 545.67 carat and was purchased from De Beers by a group of businessmen led by Henry Ho of Thailand in 1995.
The Golden Jubilee Diamond was named by King Bhumibol Adulyadej and given to him on occasion of his 50th coronation anniversary.
