Crown of Queen Mary

The Crown of Queen Mary is the consort crown made for Queen Mary, wife of George V, in 1911. Mary bought the Art Deco-inspired crown from Garrard & Co. herself, hoped that it would be worn by future queens consort. It is unusual for a British crown due to having eight half-arches instead of the traditional two arches, it weighs 590 g. The silver-gilt crown has around 2,200 rose-cut and brilliant-cut diamonds, contained the 105.6-carat Koh-i-Noor diamond, as well as the 94.4-carat Cullinan III and 63.6-carat Cullinan IV. In 1914, they were all replaced with crystal models, the arches were made detachable so that it could be worn as a circlet or open crown. Mary wore it like this after George V died in 1936. Since Queen Mary died in 1953, the crown has not been worn, it is on display with the other Crown Jewels at the Tower of London.
