"Tower of London - Crowns & Diamonds" Historical Tip by kris-t

Historical, London: 219 reviews and 548 photos

  Tower of London - Crowns & Diamonds
by kris-t
 
 

Favorite thing: The exhibition includes five English royal crowns that have, over time, passed out of the formal collection of Crown Jewels.

Fondest memory: In addition to telling the stories of these five crown frames, the exhibition explores the history of two of the most famous diamonds ever discovered, which now adorn the English regalia: the Koh-i-Noor and the Cullinan diamonds.
