The Queen’s diamond jubilee marks 60 years on the throne and what better way to celebrate than to display many of the diamonds that have been important in British history. More than 10,000 diamonds are going to be showcased in an exhibit which runs from June 30 to July 8 and then from July 31 to Oct. 7 at London’s Buckingham Palace. “The aim of the exhibition is to show how rulers have used diamonds as visible signs of wealth and power,” said curator Caroline de Guitaut, who described the crowns, tiaras, rings, earrings, swords and snuff box on display as “priceless.” If you get the chance to visit London during this time and see the display–make sure you tweet me photos!
