Formerly in the Collection of Princess Katharina Henckel Von Donnersmarck - A Magnificent and Rare Antique Silver, Gold, Emerald and Diamond Tiara, Circa 1900. The tiara is not signed and does not bear any mark, however in quality of design and manufacture, it is in line with the best creations of the great Parisian Maisons of the time. Boucheron and Chaumet were the favoured jewellers of fin de siècle European nobility and the Henckel von Donnersmarck were patrons of both firms.

The sovereign is always crowned with St. Edwards crown. This is a golden crown encrusted with diamonds, rubies, pearls, emeralds and sapphires. It replaced the one destroyed by Cromwell. The crown has been used in the coronation of every British Monarch since Queen Victoria, by whom it was considered too heavy, she was crowned with the lighter State Crown.
