The Imperial Crown of India was made for King George V in 1911, when he was acclaimed Emperor of India. A special crown had to be made as the Imperial State Crown cannot be taken out of England. The crown has eight half arches and it contains a remarkably fine emerald, a number of other emeralds, sapphires, & 6000 diamonds all sent from India.
