2. The Crown of George IV

Although there are no large diamonds on it, there are four bouquets of roses, thistles and clovers on the crown, which are the floral symbols of England, Scotland and Ireland, and the king's cross, focusing on symbolism.

Beginning with Queen Adelaide, wife of William IV, every queen and queen has worn it.

3. Cambridge Lover's Knot Crown

The crown was made by Queen Elizabeth's grandmother, Queen Mary, at the request of the British royal jeweller Garrard, and in the year before the pearl was large-scale culture, every pearl in the crown was precious, this is a truly natural seawater pearl, and it is a teardrop-shaped, which is quite rare.
