CROWNS~The British Crown Jewels are a symbol of monarchy for the British people. They have been used by Kings and Queens since 1661 or earlier.

The crown of Queen Alexandra was a new consort crown, whose style was more akin to the European royal crowns, than the standard style of the British crowns. The arches were detachable, which like the crown of Queen Elizabeth, meant the crown could be worn as a circlet.

St Edwards Crown is the most important of all the crown jewels. It is with this crown that the monarch is crowned at the ceremony of the coronation. The original crown was melted down during Oliver Cromwell’s rule. When the monarchy was restored on 29th May, 1660, new regalia had to be made before there could be a coronation. A copy was instructed to be made, to be traditionally used at the actual moment of crowning, but never worn again during the reign. The crown is made of solid gold.
