The Coronation Pin
To mark the rare occasion of the crowning of a new monarch, Elizabeth has designed an equally special piece for His Majesty’s Coronation. Taking the form of an 18ct yellow gold crown Pin, the diamond-set tips represent five symbols: royalty, power, immortality, glory & sovereignty. The deep red spinel was chosen for its symbolism of devotion and longevity –an auspicious jewel for a Coronation piece. This also references the ‘Ruby Spinel’ or ‘Black Prince’s Ruby’ in the Imperial State Crown. This truly outstanding piece uses many of Elizabeth’s signature styles: linen-texture background, gold bead decoration, wire-twist-wire finishes, and the receiver-tube at the base references her Templar band pieces.
