Re: Mrs Greville & her black diamonds
Yes, black diamonds do exist!! And Iím not surprised that Mrs Grenville had some in her collection. Queen Letizia of Spain has a pair of earrings in black diamonds, and according to Infanta Eulalia of Spain (in her book Courts and Countries After the War) the Queens of Spain had a their disposal a parure and necklace of black diamonds that they would normally wear on Good Friday, but that it had vanished after the French invasion, and secretly hidden somewhere in the Royal Palace.
