The most-expensive diamond ever polished in Russia will be shown in Moscow as part of a collection of gems named after the dynasties of the Romanov-era Imperial Court.

In 2015, Alrosa discovered a giant, 179-ct rough diamond in a mine in the northeast region of Sakha, naming it Romanov after the family that ruled for more than 300 years before the Russian Revolution.
