'MYSTERY OF THE HOPE DIAMOND' premieres on the Smithsonian Channel Sunday, November 21 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
From gracing the neck of Marie Antoinette to leaving a trail of untimely deaths in its wake, MYSTERY OF THE HOPE DIAMOND will provide an in-depth look at this gem’s brilliant but eerie tale.
With its legend marked by both kings and thieves, the Hope Diamond has transcended its own luster to become the Smithsonian’s most visited exhibition.
As part of the Smithsonian's world-class gem collection, the Hope Diamond has the highest price tag by a huge margin. The Smithsonian places no valuation on the diamond, but outside estimates today put the Hope Diamond’s value into the hundreds of millions of dollars.
Clearly with its distinctive scientific properties, flawless clarity, rare deep blue color and, of course, its history, it is without a doubt that this gem is truly in a class all of its own.
And now, for a limited time, those who visit the Smithsonian will be able to bask in the glow of the Hope Diamond in its new temporary setting, “Embracing Hope”, as voted on by the American public and designed by world-renowned jewelers Harry Winston, Inc., in celebration of the 50th anniversary of its donation to the Smithsonian.
Viewers will also be able to watch the MYSTERY OF THE HOPE DIAMOND three days earlier then its television premiere! It will stream for free on November 18th on smithsonianchannel.com beginning at noon- so make sure to check out this special event before everyone else!
