The huge 35ct diamond with a fascinating Royal history

If you're a lover of antique jewellery, sit back and read the story of the Beau Sansy diamond, a jewel that began 400-year journey through European royalty...

As soon her eyes met with the sparkling 34.98ct Beau Sancy diamond, Marie de Médicis, wife of the French king Henri IV, was determined to have it, begging her husband to gift it to her. 

Her wish for the rare diamond came true, as in 1610, a day after her coronation the stunning pear-shaped gem was handed to her - however, sadly it didn't come without a price. A day after receiving the gem, king Henri was assassinated, leaving behind his wife and six children under the age of nine.
