Emeralds of Empress Ekaterina II of Russia. C. 1830. Gold, silver, emeralds, diamonds. Set consisting of an emerald and diamond necklace with matching earrings. Every generation of the family of the Marquis of Lothian has believed that the majority of these emeralds were given by the Empress Ekaterina II to their ancestor, the Earl of Buckinghamshire during his embassy to St. Petersburg 1762-1765.
@yaeldesigns. "Emeralds typically contain inclusions that are visible to the unaided eye. Because of this, trade members and some consumers understand and accept the presence of inclusions in emeralds... Emerald inclusions are often described as looking mossy or garden-like. They’re sometimes called “jardin,” which is French for garden." - (GIA) @giagrams #yaeldesigns #emeraldearrings #customdesigned #emeralds
