NGC recuts this 45-carat gem's history and digs into a monumental theory: Could the Hope in fact be King Louis XIVs lost French Blue Diamond, stolen during the French Revolution? Physical evidence allows scientists and diamond experts to create 3-D images of the original French Blue to compare with the Hope as we reveal how France's lost gem may have been intentionally recut.

How our DVDs and DVD-Rs Differ
Customers who purchase programs in the NG DVD Exclusives Library will receive a non-interactive, play only disc. There is no chaptering information on these DVDs, but there are chapter marks approximately every five minutes, which make it easy to fast forward through a program. The DVD-R format provides the digital video and audio quality you expect from all of our DVDs.
NOTE: The NG DVD-R titles are not closed-captioned. We apologize for any inconvenience this limitation may cause.
