EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite photograph showcases The Queen's Crown, a magnificent piece of British royal history created for Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother, during the coronation of King George VI in 1937. The crown was meticulously crafted by the esteemed jewellers, Messrs. Garrard, using platinum as the primary metal. The foundation of the crown is a circlet that was previously used by Queen Victoria for court functions. Two of the most renowned diamonds in the world are proudly set in the crown. The Koh-i-Noor diamond, a 105.6 carat diamond, is situated at the front cross-pate, its brilliance adding to the crown's grandeur. Another diamond, a drop-brilliant from the Treasury of Lahore, is set in the top cross-pate. This diamond was presented to Queen Victoria by the East India Company. The Queen's Crown represents the sovereignty and history of the British monarchy. Its creation is a testament to the craftsmanship and artistry of Messrs. Garrard, who have been the official jewellers to the British monarchy since 1735. The crown's intricate design, featuring precious gems and diamonds, is a symbol of the rich heritage and tradition of the British royal family.
