One of the most breathtaking suites of emerald jewelry in existence is the Seringapatam Jewels, housed at the Victoria and Albert Museum. The set consists of a necklace, brooch, bracelet, and pair of drop earrings created from emeralds, diamonds, gold, and platinum. The emeralds were originally a reward given to British Major-General George Harris, following a victory at the Battle of Seringapatam in India in 1799. The emeralds remained in the family, and were eventually set into the spectacular suite of jewellery for the wife of the fourth Lord Harris, Lucy Ada.⠀
