Think jewels are boring?

You’ll change your mind when you read about the Kohinoor, history’s most famous diamond. Legend says it carries a curse that brings bad luck to all its owners. Some of India’s most powerful kings possessed it and lost it – from the great Mughals to Punjab’s Ranjit Singh – before it was grabbed by the British and sent as a gift to Queen Victoria.

In this book you’ll learn:

About a throne that cost twice as much as the Taj Mahal

Ranjit Singh’s crazy forty camels trick

Why no ruler of England has worn the diamond since Queen Victoria
