  The Imperial crown of Maximillian I of Habsburg is the trademark of Amsterdam since Emperor Maximillian permitted the people of this city to use his crown as their symbol on the 11th of February 1489. This crown was offered to Cem, the brother of the Ottoman sultan Yildirim Beyazit. Before Cem could posses it, he was taken prisoner by the pope and poisened in his Napoletan prison.
 
  This is the Threecrown, or Tiara of His Holyness the Pope. A replica of the tiara presented to the Ottoman throne-pretendent Cem Sultan by the Holy Father is made by Felix Hönings will be on show during the exibition.
 
This is also a crown of the House of Habsburg, for years in posession of the Ottoman sultans. The pearls are real, the gold is real gold. A crown shows off and some crowns are fake, like the Dutch Royal Crown, where the jewels are glass and the gold is just plated over wood.  
 
  The crown of the Brittish Empire is also a real one and contains one of world biggest diamonds, the Koh-i-Nur (that´s ´Mountain of Light´ in Farsi).

You remember The Pink Panter...

I´s always a surprise which remake of the world's most famous diamonds will be on show during a Felix Hönings-exibition. Candidates for the 1999 exibition are the 191 caret diamond known as the Koh-I-nur (Mountain of Light, found in India and today in the British Royal Treasury), the diamond known as the Derya-i-nur (Sea of Light, today in the National Bank of Iran), the Southern Star diamond of 128 carats found in Brazil in 1853, the Grand Mongol Diamond, and the Pigot or Spoonmaker's Diamond. Last fits perfect in the 1999 show..

Various stories are told about the Soonmarker's Diamond According to one tale, a poor fisherman in Istanbul near Yenikapi was wandering idly, empty-handed along the shore when he found a shiny stone among the litter, which he turned over one over not knowing what it was. After carrying it about in his pocket for a few days, he stopped by the jewelers Market, showing it to the first jeweler he encountered. The jeweler took a casual glance at the stone and appeared disinterested, saying "It's a piece of glass, take it away if you like, or if you like I'll give you three spoons. You brought it all the way here, at least let it be worth your trouble." What was the poor fisherman to do with this piece of glass? What's more the jeweler had felt sorry for him and was giving three spoons. He said okay and took the spoons, leaving in their place an enormous treasure. It is for this reason they say that the diamond's name became the "Spoonmaker's Diamond" According to another tale, the person finding the diamond was a spoonmaker, or the diamond was given this name because it resembled the bowl of a spoon. Even today it is not known how the original diamond came to the Ottoman Palace, who it was obtained from or how. Even though a ring stone called the Spoonmaker's Diamond which belonged to Sultan Mehmet IV appears listed in museum records, this stone along with its gold is only 10 to 12 grams, which is much smaller than the Spoonmaker's Diamond. Experts go on researching. Another story tells that in 1774 a French officer by the name of Pigot purchased a diamond from the Maharajah of Madras and brought it to France. After changing a number of hands, the diamond was put up for sale at auction, in which Napoleon's mother purchased it. For a long time she wore it on her breast. When Napoeon was sent into exile, his aged mother put the diamond up for sale in order to be able save her son.

One of Tepedelenli Ali Pasa's men, who was in France at the time, bought the diamond on the Pasa's behalf for 150 thousand gold pieces, bringing it back and handing it over. During the reign of Mahmud II, Tepedelenli Ali Pasa was killed on allegations of rebelling against the State, and his treasure was confiscated. The whole lot of precious jewelry was moved to the Ottoman Treasury, during the course of which the diamond purchased from Napoleon's mother, subsequently becoming famous as the Spoonmaker's Diamond, also entered the Treasury.

It is known that the stone known in France as the Pigot Diamond which was purchaed by Tepedelenli Ali Pasa's men was 86 carets. The Spoonmaker's Diamond in the Treasury of Topkapi Museum is also 86 carets. Thus, the world-renowned Pigot diamond must be the Spoonmaker's Diamond as remade by Felix Hönings. The original never left the Istanbul Topkapi-palace.
