Merge with famous diamonds category?[edit]

Why isn't the category used instead of this list? As new famous diamonds are discovered (like the Lesotho_Promise), the article can simply include a category tag to be added to the category. On the other hand, it it requires someone to directly edit this article for the new diamond to appear in the list. Is there a reason to have both a category and a list? --Dirkbike 23:04, 9 October 2006 (UTC)

Categories and lists are found to co-exist all over wikipedia. The list enables subjects that have not yet been written about - to be listed. Categories only detail those articles that exist in wikipedia ie a subset of the other, it took me a while to understand the rationale for both, but now I understand why.

Clotman Diamond[edit]

Is there such a thing as the "Clotman Diamond"? It got brought up a lot on Garfield and Friends ... also SNL.

         It's the "Klopman Diamond", which doesn't really exist.
         It's from an old Johnny Carson joke.

The Spoonmaker's Diamond[edit]

I wonder if this belongs here?

Its famous, so yeah, it belongs on the list. -- (talk) 09:12, 22 December 2008 (UTC)

Largest Colourless Diamond[edit]

According to pages for both The Centenary Diamond and The Millennium Star, the Centenary Diamond is the largest colorless (grade D), flawless diamond, however this list states that The Millennium Star is. Surely this should be made consistent with the individual pages? 07:10, 29 August 2007 (UTC)

Completing red link articles[edit]

How can we possibly complete the article with red links, if you administrators start deleting articles of stub class, is it not better to at least classify them as stubs, rather than completely deleting it, it happened to me when i started writing on Agra diamond. I was only trying to fill a void. I don't think it looks great to see a lot of red links in any article. Randhirreddy 21:22, 19 October 2007 (UTC)


I put this in a sortable table. Maybe some of the text could be altered to take out the redundancy ? I also thought a 'year of origin' would be a useful column. Wizzy 18:56, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

this table sorts correctly by uncut weight, however, for cut weight it sorts by the first digit, so 10, 100, 20... Tried with two browsers and two computers, so seems to be in the table coding, didn't have time to check into it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 05:40, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
