Kohinoor was aquired from Ranjeet Singh

Kohinoor is a diamond that was mined at Kollur Mine, in the present state of Andhra Pradesh in India. It was originally 793 carats when uncut and now a 105.6 metric carat diamond, weighing 21.6 gramms in its recent cut state. The diamond was originally owned by the Kakatiya dynasty, which had installed it in a temple of a Hindu goddess as her eye.

Kohinoor is currently part of British Royal and it was acquired by the British from the Maharaja Ranjit Singh Successor Dulip Singh. Dulip Singh was the youngest son of Ranjit Singh and his fifth wife Maharani Jind Kaur. Dulip, aged 13, traveled to the United Kingdom to present the jewel.
