PLATINUM WEDDING ANNIVERSARY

Year: 2017
Sculptor: Neil Welch
Edition:

The Queen's crown is known as the State Diadem and this stunning circlet is made from 1333 diamonds with a double band of 169 pearls and dates from 1820 when it was made for King George IV. The Queen wore it during the procession to Westminster Abbey prior to her coronation in 1953 and she also wears it annually at the State Opening of Parliament.
She also wears a diamond necklace and earrings. Now known as the Coronation Necklace and Earrings these were commissioned by Queen Victoria in `1858, worn by her at her Diamond Jubilee in 1887. The Queen's engagement ring and bracelet - a wedding gift from the Duke of Edinburgh - were made from diamonds from a tiara formerly owned by his mother, Princess Alice of Battenberg. The Duke designed and commissioned the jewellery from London jeweller Philip Antrobus. Across her state Dress, The Queen wears the blue Garter Riband and pinned on to this are the Royal Family order of King George V and King George VI, and also the Lesser George Emblem. Below this, on her dress she also wears the Garter Star.
The Duke of Edinburgh's uniform consists of a tailcoat with standing collar, gold braids to the sleeves, gold shoulder boards, gold chains and buttons, and a black and gold belt and gold lac3ed black trousers. He also carries a ceremonial sword. He proudly wears service medals from the Second World War and Jubilee and Coronation medals. He also has the Order of Merit - a red and blue cross worn on a red and blue ribbon around his neck - and wears the Royal Victorian Chain.
