Our price: £21.00



The Crown of Scotland forms part of the Scottish Crown Jewels, or Honours of Scotland - the oldest sovereign regalia in the United Kingdom and a symbol of Scotland's rich historical past.
It was made for James V and was refashioned in 1540 from a damaged and lighter crown, by John Mosman an Edinburgh goldsmith. James wore it to his consort's coronation in the same year at the abbey church of Holyrood. The circlet at the base is made from Scottish gold, encrusted with 22 gemstones and 20 precious stones taken from the previous crown; freshwater pearls from Scotland's rivers were also used. The crown weighs 3lbs 10oz. The Honours as coronation regalia were first used together at the coronation of the nine month- old Mary, Queen of Scots in 1543, and subsequently at the coronations of her infant son James VI (and I of England) at Stirling in 1567 and her grandson Charles I in 1633 at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
