276: What’s being celebrated? Where? (The third picture would be a clue.)
275: The Imperial Crown of India, the crown of the Sovereign as Emperor of India during the time of the British Raj. The crown was created for George V as Emperor of India to wear at the Delhi Durbar of 1911. The need for the new crown lay in the fact that it is forbidden by Old Royal Law for the British Crown Jewels themselves to leave the United Kingdom. The Crown Jewellers, Garrard & Co, created the crown at the cost of £60,000. It weighs 34.05 ounces (0.97 kg) and is set with emeralds, rubies, sapphires, 6,100 diamonds, and one large fine ruby. The considerable weight of the crown led King George to complain after the Durbar that his head hurt. The crown has not been worn by any Sovereign since.
