Sailors from HMS Diamond got their hands on the ship’s namesake gems when they visited jewellers De Beers.

As a reward for their effort aboard the Type 45 destroyer a selection of her ship’s company were treated to a day with some of the world’s most prized gemstones and jewels in London.

De Beers has been associated with the ship since commissioning in 2011, presenting a diamond for the occasion. HMS Diamond is undergoing maintenance and trials in Portsmouth.
