In this video, I look at the creation of the English coronation crown, St Edward’s Crown. Created in 1660 for the Coronation of Charles II, it was a recreation of a medieval holy relic. An extraordinary example of the English Baroque, it is a fine example of the goldsmiths’ craft as well as being an icon of the British monarchy.
