The Diamond Fund is a unique collection of historical artefacts, jewelry items, rare specimens of precious stones, gold and platinum nuggets. This is one of the few treasuries in the world, which keep the crown jewels. Its history begins with the Decree of Peter the Great (1719), according to which a special room was provided for storage of “articles owned by the state”. It was later named the Diamond Room and it was intended for state regalia, insignia and ceremonial jewelry worn by members of the royal family on special occasions. During the reign of the Romanov dynasty the treasury was enriched with jewels. A variety of items and jewelry richly decorated with precious stones was made during this period. The Russian court was characterized with splendor and magnificence, especially during the reign of Elizabeth and Catherine II. It was one of the most impressive royal courts in Europe. The best jewelers, such as J. Posier, father and sons Duval, L. Pfisterer, G. Eckart were invited to work for the court. They created works of fine jewelry, which are currently presented at the exhibition.
