The Five Piece Coronation Set is a remarkable collection that showcases five of the main pieces used in the Coronation of a British Monarch. Each item holds significant historical and symbolic value, representing the enduring traditions and regality of the British monarchy.
At the heart of the set is the St. Edward's Crown, a magnificent piece crafted in gold. Originally made for Charles II in 1661, it is believed to contain the ancient crown of Edward the Confessor. Adorned with precious and semi-precious stones, this crown represents the pinnacle of regal authority and continuity.
The Imperial State Crown, another remarkable piece in the set, captivates with its exquisite design and precious gemstones. It features iconic gems such as the Black Prince's Ruby, the Stuart Sapphire, and the 2nd Star of Africa Diamond, weighing an astounding 317.40 carats. With over 3,000 other precious gems and pearls, this crown embodies the grandeur and opulence of the British monarchy.
The George IV Diadem was made for the coronation of King George IV. The design of the diadem features the floral symbols of the United Kingdom, the English rose, Scottish thistle and Irish shamrock.
The Sovereign's Sceptre with the Cross, originally created for Charles II in 1661 and later altered in 1910, is a symbol of the sovereign's authority. This sceptre is adorned with the renowned 1st Star of Africa Diamond, the largest diamond in the world, weighing an impressive 530 carats.
The Sovereign's Orb, crafted in 1661 for Charles II, is held by the sovereign as the symbol of their role as the Defender of the Faith. It represents the sovereign's duty to protect and uphold the religious beliefs of the nation.
Each piece in the Five Piece Coronation Set is meticulously handcrafted at 1/12th scale, in fine English pewter, ensuring exceptional quality and attention to detail. The Imperial State Crown and George IV Diadem miniatures are palladium plated, whereas the remaining pieces are 24ct gold plated. Bohemian crystals are added by hand to finish each miniature. The set is beautifully presented in a display box, allowing these regal treasures to be admired and cherished for generations to come.
