Well I know the oldest ITEM in the crown jewels is the coronation spoon. It dates back to the 12th century and...I have no idea what you do with a spoon at a coronation. But it's not something you wear which is what I was interested in.

It holds the consecrated oil for the anointing. The oil is "stored" in the eagle ampulla and poured into the spoon. You can see the two grooves for the archbishop's fingers on the spoon's bowl.

Not really a jewel. But certainly the oldest piece in the crown collection.

The spoon is not actually seen during the coronation as the monarch is shielded from view during that part of the ceremony.
