The Coronation Crown Miniature 7 Piece Set is a remarkable collection that encompasses seven significant pieces used in the coronation ceremony of a British monarch. Each item holds its own unique historical and symbolic significance, representing the grandeur and tradition of the British monarchy.
At the centre of the set is the St. Edward's Crown, crafted in gold. This crown, made for Charles II in 1661, is believed to contain the ancient crown of Edward the Confessor. Adorned with precious and semi-precious stones, it is a symbol of the continuity of the monarchy and the long-standing history of British royalty.
Another remarkable piece in the set is the Imperial State Crown, which holds an array of extraordinary gems, including the Black Prince's Ruby, the Stuart Sapphire, and the impressive 2nd Star of Africa Diamond, weighing 317.40 carats. With over 3,000 precious gems and pearls, this crown represents the wealth and power of the British monarchy.
The Sovereign's Sceptre with the Cross, made for Charles II in 1661 but altered in 1910, features the renowned 1st Star of Africa Diamond, the largest diamond in the world weighing 530 carats. This sceptre symbolises the authority and power vested in the sovereign.
Accompanying the set is the Sovereign's Orb, created in 1661 for Charles II. It is held by the sovereign as the "Defender of the Faith" and serves as a reminder of the monarch's role in upholding religious values.
The Commonwealth Bracelets, also known as Armills, were a gift to Queen Elizabeth II for her coronation in 1953. These bracelets represent the unity and shared history of the Commonwealth nations.
Lastly, the Coronation Ring, made for William IV in 1831, has been used by all monarchs since, excluding Queen Victoria. It is a symbol of the commitment and responsibility of the sovereign to serve the nation.
The Coronation Crown Miniature Set is a testament to the rich history and pageantry associated with British coronations. Each piece is meticulously hand-crafted in pewter and toned where applicable. This collection, presented in a display box, offers a unique opportunity to admire and appreciate these iconic symbols of royal authority and heritage.
