The three most impressive pieces of emerald jewellery
- Chalk Emerald: The Chalk Emerald is a 37.82 carat Colombian emerald. This emerald was formerly the centrepiece of a diamond necklace owned by an Indian maharaja. This emerald is now set in a ring and is on show at the Natural History Museum in New York.
- The diadem owned by Marie Thérèse of France: The Duchess of Angoulême, Marie Thérèse, owned a stunning emerald diadem. It is not known for sure exactly how much the gem is worth, but is sure to be immense. The fact that the diadem hasn't been worked on over the years only serves to increase its value. The diadem is now on show at the Louvre.
- The Seringapatam jewels: the Victoria and Albert museum in London exhibits one of the best jewellery collections of all time, namely the Seringapatam jewels. The set comprises an emerald bracelet, necklace, brooch and pair or earrings . Originally they were a gift for the British general Lord Harris following his victory in the Siege of Seringapatam in 1799.
