Diamond Fund

Highly recommended
Exceptional sets of jewellery are preserved and displayed at the Diamond Fund, including the crown worn by Catherine II (known as the "great imperial crown") decorated with some 5,000 diamonds and topped by an enormous ruby, itself crowned with a cross, made in 1762 by a court jeweller named Jérémie Posier. The collection boasts some fabulous diamonds, such as the one decorating the imperial sceptre.
