The Hortensia diamond was mined in India as one of the Golconda Diamonds, and is part of the French Crown Jewels. It is a 20 carat diamond of pale orange-pink colour, cut into a five-sided shape, and with a "feather" running from its tip to its girdle. In September of 1972, the Hortensia Diamond was one of many jewels stolen from the Garde Meuble, only to be discovered a year later in the attic of a house in the Parisian district of Halles. From Napolean's epaulette braid to Empress Eugenie's diamond-encrusted comb, the Hortensia found its place in many respectable ornaments. After being stolen in 1830 and found again, the Hortensia managed to be one of the few jewels excluded from the French Crown Jewels when they were sold in 1887. The Hortensia is currently housed at the Louvre in Paris, France. Three historical diamonds – the Regent, the Sancy and the Hortensia – formerly adorned royal crowns or garments. We take light pink cubic zirconia to cut a replica of Hortensia Diamond according to information of original one in Louvre in Paris.
