The Hope Diamond - the largest and most beautiful blue diamond ever found - has inspired centuries of legends and lies, great superstition and fierce passion. French kings and stunning heiresses have worn it next to their hearts. Reckless aristocrats have let it slip through their fingers.

Flaunted, hidden, stolen, cursed, the Hope Diamond still tantalises and inspires all who lay their eyes on it. Now in Hope: Adventures of a Diamond, Miriam Fowler tells the story of this mythical gem and the extraordinary men and women who have owned and lost it.
