The creation of the Diamond Fund was initiated by the decree of the Emperor Peter the Great with the aim of the preserving of pieces, which are in the public domain, first of all, the regalia for the coronation. That times the building for these purposes was named the Diamond room. The XX century brought the big changes in the history of the treasury. While Russia went into the World War I, clouds gathered under Petersburg as well. All content of the Diamond room was transported without any delay to Moscow for preserving in the Kremlin Armory over the solid Kremlin walls. Exhibits were there until 1922, when the Commission for the examination and selection of values was formed. According to the results of the Commission's work, a lot of collection pieces were sent in different museum all over the country.

In 1925 the priceless treasure of the crown was represented to the public demonstration in the House of the Unions for the first time. The special exhibit of the Diamond Fund of Russia was coordinated to the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the formation of the Soviet state. The organizers expected this exhibition to be opened during one year, but a close attention from the citizens and foreign tourists led to the decision of reorganization of the temporary exhibit in the permanent one.
