Queen Mary's Crown, part of the British Crown Jewels. The crown was created in 1911 CE. The central stone is the Koh-i-Noor diamond which is now part of the Crown of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother and which is sometimes removed for Elizabeth II (r. 1953 CE -) to wear as a pendant. The crown is held at the Tower of London. (Image from G. Younghusband & C. Davenport, 'The Crown Jewels of England', London: Cassell & Co, 1919 CE)
