Centenary Diamond - Where is it?

I have talked about the latest 478 carat near flawless diamond found in Lesotho as well as the "Marcel Tolkowsky" cut diamond who attempted to define a perfectly cut diamond. What is interesting is the Marcel Tolkowski is the great uncle of Gabi Tolkowsky, the person who cut the De Beers Centenary Diamond. The Centenary Diamond weighs 273.85 carats and is the largest perfect color diamond in the world. The question is "Where is the Centenary Diamond"? De Beers, the original owner, is not telling. When De Beers first disclosed that the centenary diamond, the shape was described as being appropriate for adorning the turban of a Sultan or a Maharaja. Could it be that it is sitting in a turban today? Let me know your thoughts?
