The Spoonmaker’s Diamond is an 86 carat pear-shaped diamond which is considered the pride of the Imperial Treasury exhibitions at the Topkapi Palace Museum (Turkey)
and its most valuable single exhibit.
Considered the fourth largest diamond of its kind in the world, it is kept under conditions of high security.
Set in silver, surrounded by a double row of 49 old-mine cut diamonds it hangs in a glass case on the wall of the third room in Imperial Treasury section of Topkapı’s “Conqueror’s Pavilion”, where it is clearly the most eye-catching jewel.
