Crown Jewels - The new exhibition will explore the importance of the Crown Jewels to the British monarchy, the role of the Tower in protecting these treasures and the long and fascinating tradition of coronations in England. The mystique and beauty of the diamonds and precious jewels in the collection have always held an unparalleled allure to visitors from across the globe. The Coronation ceremony will be the central theme of the re-presentation. The displays will examine how the royal regalia are used during the ceremony, and explore the symbolism of each object. Destroyed at the Tower after the Civil War and remade for Charles II's coronation in 1661, the Crown Jewels signify royal authority to lead, and protect, the nation. The priceless collection holds some of the most legendary and extraordinary diamonds in the world. The Crown Jewels at the Tower of London are a unique working collection of royal regalia and are still regularly used by the Queen in imortant national ceremonies, such as the State opening of Parliament.
