The Lothian Emeralds ~ Every generation of the family of the Marquis of Lothian has believed that the majority of these emeralds were given by the Empress Catherine II to their ancestor, the Earl of Buckinghamshire, during his embassy to St. Petersburg 1762-1765.

It is still kept with this family.
