Williamson Pink: This pretty pink rock was given to Queen Elizabeth II for her wedding in 1947 and was later set in a brooch. It is regarded as the most famous pink diamond in the world according to the BBC. The Williamson pink was discovered at the Williamson diamond mine in Tanzania in 1947. The 54.5 carat rough diamond was cut by London diamond cutters Briefel and Lemer in 1948, and Cartier was commissioned to create a setting for the main 23.6 carats round brilliant cut diamond.
