Crown of Queen Alexandra. The crown jewels are a unique collection of royal regalia and are still regularly used by the Queen in important national ceremonies.

The arches were detachable, which like the crown of Queen Elizabeth, meant the crown could be worn as a circlet.

Bejeweled Wedding Cake with Opulent Jewels. No wonder King George went mad! He was likely driven to distraction by the opulent jewelry Englishwomen took to wearing during the 18th and early 19th centuries. This cake is a homage to those showstoppers, with four regal tiers of spearmint-hued fondant, royal icing piped to mimic pearl strands, and sparkling edible baubles, each ringed in a "pave setting" of royal-icing pearls.

In 1907, the Great Star of Africa was given to King Edward VII of England and set into the Royal Scepter.
