The Scottish crown jewels are reputed to be the oldest in Europe.

This is the crown used to crown the British monarch at his/her coronation. It was last used in 1953 to crown Queen Elizabeth II.
And each monarch only wears this crown once--at their coronation. After that they wear the Imperial State Crown.

It is said that St. Edward's crown is quite heavy--around 5lbs--and Her Majesty practiced wearing it while doing paperwork to get used to the weight before her coronation in 1953.

There has also been a rumor that before Queen Mary died in March of 1953, the Queen put the crown on for Queen Mary to see before her death.

This beautiful piece of jewel is made in diamonds and pearls. The circular diadem is decorated with four crosses-pattées, set with diamonds, representing St. George, the front one with a wonderful honey-coloured diamond in the centre. The four bouquets of flowers in diamonds include roses, thistles and shamrocks, representing England, Scotland and Ireland. Wales, being a principality, was not represented. Below, two rows of pearls with diamonds in the middle make it one of the finest pieces of jewellery of the royal collection. It is part of the Crown Jewels since the death of HM Queen Victoria, who left it to the Crown in her will.

The picture is scanned from an old magazine and hosted by myself.

A few...

I don't know the names or historical associations of these crowns. All I know is they are British. I took pictures of them from Majesty magazine. I think one of them is the Queen's coronation crown from 1953.
The middle one was for George VI, no?
The other was worn by Queen Mary, the present Queen's grandmother.
If anyone knows the specifics, I'd love to know it, so please speak up.

The first one if the St. Edwards Crown, the crown that is used only for the actual crowing of the sovereign.

The second is a coronet, and it is used only by Dukes of the United Kingdom.

The last image, is Queen Alexandra wearing her Coronation crown, which was made for her before her coronation.

When the Dukes use the middle one, do they wear it to any State occasion (i.e. a Coronation, the State Opening of Parliament)?

The Duke of Edinburgh at one stage of the Coronation wore a royal Duke's coronet. Check out the Coronation thread; there may be a pic.

A stupid question...

In this pic (source: hola) is Her Majesty the Queen Elizabeth II wearing the miniatures of her parents? I am sure one is King George VI, but I'm not sure if the other is herself or the late Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother?
And one more question: What is the name and history of the tiara?

Do you think when Charles is crowned that Camilla will wear the Queen Mum's crown or one of the older ones like Queen Mary's? I know she has a lot of the Queen Mum's other jewels like the Honeycomb tiara.
