Captivate Your Audience. This reproduction Sultan's Emerald Crystal Pin is centered by a hand-faceted crystal replica of the 75 carat emerald believed to have once adorned the belt buckle of Ottoman Sultan Adul-Hamid II (1842-1918). Sparkling crystals replicate the 109 round diamonds and 20 baguettes forming the elegant surround. Rhodium-plated brass. Emerald stone will vary in color. 1 3/4"l. x 2"w.
Gems accumulate history. The very stone that once adorned a king or queen might today be set in someone’s cocktail ring. (The history of the Hope Diamond includes a stint in the French Crown Jewels, a daring theft, two recuttings, and purchase by an English king.) The astonishing replica collections presented on these next pages—a mere sampling of the extraordinary holdings in our National Museum of Natural History’s National Gem Collection—let you dazzle in their reflected glory.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
