Paperweight was first created in the middle of 19th century. Paperweight was designed at the time before air-conditioning was available and at the time before some of larger skyscrapers started to have windows that couldn’t be opened. At that time, either you are on the ground floor or several floors above, when you think the air on the room is unbearable, you will open the windows there so that breeze will enter and cool down your office. And the breeze does not only cool the temperature in your office down, but also, very likely, will blow away any papers there. To counter this problem, some companies started to produce paperweight. A paperweight is originally a heavy, commonly semi-spherical and glass object set above a heap of paper so that whenever somebody opened windows, the paper will not be blown away. Diamond Paperweight
