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.

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: Queen Mary's Boucheron Loop Tiara

At first I liked this tiara but I no longer do. I find the design too much.

I agree. The Spanish Loop tiara and the Boucheron Loop tiara appear to be cousins.

The press referred to it as the Ladies' Tiara, the ladies diamonds, a spiky tiara, a high Russian style tiara, and as the Queen's silver wedding tiara.
The Turkish necklace was sold

Actually, Princess Mary’s father was the one who gifted it to her.

The Fife family used to have two fringe tiaras, the Kent/Connaught fringe which used to belong to Queen Victoria’s mother but after Princess Alexandra died, it was sold and retained Princess Louise of Fife’s tiara.

I wonder if we'll see some of the long forgotten / not seen jewels come out the vaults now Camilla / Charles has the keys. I'd love to see the Marie Feodorovna's Sapphire Bandeau tiara reappear and of course, whatever other surprises may be hiding in there.

I hope so too.

Although, I believe Camilla has quite a large collection of her own. I've read that Charles usually has a representative at the auctions to acquire pieces for her.

I have no doubt that Camilla and Catherine will have a rifle through and come up with some jewellery not seen for some time.
