  The most important piece in the crown jewels is St. Edward’s Crown. It is made of solid gold and was created especially for the coronation of King Charles II in A new crown was required because the previous crown, which had been used since Edward the Confessor’s time, had been melted down in when the monarchy was abolished and England briefly became a republic.   St. Edward’s Crown, worn briefly by the new British monarch during their coronation ceremony, is the crown jewel of all the Crown Jewels—the crowns, robes, scepters, and other ceremonial items.

  For the very first time, the Queen has shared memories of her coronation and spoken openly about the Crown Jewels in a television monarch recalled the ceremony . The collective term Crown Jewels denotes the regalia and vestments worn by the sovereign of the United Kingdom during the coronation ceremony and at other state functions. The term refers to the following objects: the crowns, sceptres (with either the cross or the dove), orbs, swords, rings, spurs, the royal robe or pall, and several other objects connected with the ceremony.

During the ceremony, the Sovereign takes the coronation oath. The form and wording have varied over the centuries. Today, the Sovereign undertakes to rule according to law, to exercise justice with mercy - promises symbolised by the four swords in the coronation regalia (the Crown Jewels) - and to maintain the Church of England. The jewels are of great antiquity and historical significance. The oldest jewel is Edward the Confessor's sapphire, believed to have been worn by him in a ring (c. AD ). It is now mounted in the cross atop the crown. Another of the crown jewels is St. Edward's Crown, the crown used for the coronation of every king or queen of England since.
