#2 The Orlov Diamond – Count Orlov (Priceless)

The Orlov Diamond has a fascinating history of its own. It travelled from the caves of India in the late 17th century to Iran and then finally to its most passionate owner, Count Orlov.

According to legend, Count Orlov tried to rekindle his relationship with Catherine the Great of Russia by taking the aid of this diamond. Sadly, the diamond wasn’t able to reflect his affections to the queen and their relationship ended shortly thereafter.

As of today, there are no accurate price estimates of this priceless gem.
