The display of Britain’s Crown Jewels has had a vital update.
This comes just in time for the increased interest that is certain to occur at the time of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee and the 2012 Olympics.
The UK has not had such a prolific year in recent history and all eyes will be firmly on our greatest landmarks and artefacts and how we welcome the influx of tourists and spectators that we will receive at this time.
This is why it couldn’t be more important to make sure the UK is putting its most stylish foot forward at all times.
A makeover fit for the 21st Century
What the curators of the Crown Jewels want to emphasise to visitors from all over the world is that this collection of jewels is a living collection. They are very much still in use and not just an old collection of gold and jewels.
The jewels, which will continue to be kept in the Tower of London – a highly popular tourist attraction in its own right – have been displayed and lit in a way that accentuates their unique beauty.
Music and film will be played as well, which will highlight the huge symbolic importance each jewel has and why it was created.
The Crown Jewels have pieces that date way back to the reign of King Charles II. King Charles II is well known by historians as the first king to ascend the throne after the monarchy was abolished and his father Charles I executed. Cromwell spent time trying to sell gold jewellery owned by the deposed royals and decimated the rest of the collection.
Because of the violence of the time, only one piece of the collection – a 12th Century Coronation Spoon – exists today.
