Gone are the days when earrings was just for women! Embracing your ears with trendy and stylish stud earrings is something that you find most of the men doing these days! Accessorizing has become equally important for them too! Another thing that relates black diamonds to men are the naturally similar traits!

There have been rumors that both the Indian and British Governments would sit and decide the fate of the Kohinoor. But nothing seems to have come of it. There are several individuals of both British and Indian descent who claim to be descendants of Maharaja Duleep Singh. They have been vociferously claiming that the Kohinoor be handed over to them. In a recent visit to India in 2013, the British Prime Minister, Mr. David Cameroon stated that it would be illogical to return the diamond now and emphasized that he did not believe in 'returnism'. As of now the diamond seems safe in the crown of the Queen of Great Britain, but only time will tell if this is its final resting place.
They studied the rough Cullinan for almost three months and prepared themselves for the big day. On 10th February, 1908, Joseph Asscher decided to cut it. On that afternoon, he struck a hammer on a V-shaped groove that he had made on the diamond, by placing a cleaving blade in the grove. The result was that the blade broke apart in two, but the diamond still remained intact. Soon, another blade was arranged and Joseph Asscher made his second attempt to cut Cullinan. He was successful in his second attempt and the diamond broke apart, just in the way he thought it would. Legend has it that Joseph Asscher fainted after cutting the Cullinan. The two parts of Cullinan weighed 1,040 carats and 1,977.5 carats each.
