The British Royal Family's most gorgeous tiaras:


Brief history behind some British royal family tiaras (plus the Spencer tiara). Interesting that the Poltimore tiara worn by Princess Margaret was sold at auction in 2006 for a half milion:

Does anyone know where a list (item-by-item) of the contents of the UK Crown Jewels can be found? I have looked all over the internet and can't find one anywhere. Most articles only talk about the major items. Wikipedia gives the number of each type of item, but no list of individual items.

I suggest you consult one of the sources cited by Wikipedia: The Crown Jewels by Anna Keay.

It's listed on the Royal Collection website so I assume it's considered to be an authoritative source:

https://www.royalcollectionshop.co.u...wn-jewels.html

Use WorldCat to see if a library near you owns a copy. If not, you can ask your local public library to request a copy through their interlibrary loan service:

https://www.worldcat.org

It's also available for sale on Amazon.

Thanks. That's what I was thinking I'd have to do.

A big deal was made about Meghan wanting to wear the tiara Eugenie wore in the media. It made it sound like the beautiful tiara Meghan wore was somehow lesser. I was wondering what the difference was really between the two. I'm also wondering if there has been any mention of Beatrice wearing a tiara.

A decorative piece of gold, believed to be part of the old Crown used by English monarchs before the Interregnum, has been found in a Northamptonshire field. It consists of a small gold figurine, standing on an antelope and believed to represent King Henry VI in Royal regalia.

The English Crown Jewels were, for the most part, broken up, sold off and melted down by order of Parliament after the execution of King Charles I, the last King to wear the medieval Crown. The British Museum is holding this fragment for examination and assessment at the moment.

It was a terrible act of vandalism by Cromwell having the English Crown Jewels sold off or melted down.
The golden Ampulla and spoon escaped his attention and survived

The current British Crown Jewels date from after the Restoration.
