The Sancy Blood Diamond

The Sancy Blood Diamond book coverThis is the only complete 600-year history of the Sancy Diamond written to date. The Sancy is one of the world’s ten most famous jewels, and until now, its past has been alternatively shrouded in misconception and mystery. Based primarily on original sources, I take the reader through the diamond’s long history and four royal crown jewel collections. Stolen from India in the fourteenth century, the Sancy diamond was the largest white diamond in Europe until 1661, and the most concentrated form of wealth. I solve the diamond’s two disappearances – the 125-year missing history after the defeat of Charles the Bold and its twenty-odd year disappearance prompted by the greed of Napoleon Bonaparte.
