Koh-i-noor diamond a 'symbol of conquest' in new display of Crown Jewels
A new exhibition at the Tower of London featuring the Crown Jewels will describe the controversial Koh-i-noor diamond as a “symbol of conquest”.
The display, which will open to the public in May, weeks after the coronation of the King Charles and Queen Consort Camilla, will explore the origins of some of the jewels for the first time.
The history of the Koh-i-noor, which is set within the coronation crown of the Queen Mother, will be explored using a combination of objects and visual projections to explain the stone's story as a “symbol of conquest”.
It was previously owned by Mughal emperors, the shahs of Iran, the emirs of Afghanistan and Sikh maharajas.
