I always love hearing the story about winning the emeralds in a raffle- lol yes "unreal" is the perfect word for it. How gullible do they think we are? :lol-2:

Wow - a really fascinating story! - and truly stunningly gorgeous pieces. Thankyou for sharing.
I inherited some very old emeralds myself that I would love to know the story of. Very mysterious.
(It’s a carved emerald bracelet surrounded by old rubies, polki diamonds, with an enamelled minkari reverse in 22KT gold for the Moghal period). At some point it was converted 2FDB82D4-DCE9-4149-93F0-05F256BF1EBA.jpeg 7E3EAEBA-1767-47F8-9A4B-B7E3D977EC53.jpeg from a necklace or turban ornament into a bracelet.
Certainly not of the Royal Standard but still very interesting and unique piece you don’t see everyday.

The story behind the Greville bequest also fascinates me. Royal mistresses, illegitimate children, such juicyness!! And the jewels ultimately found their way back to the Royal coffers.

I'll give that a spin in an upcoming post!
