The Crown Jewels
For over 600 years, kings and queens of England have stored a priceless collection of crowns, sceptres, orbs and other objects at the Tower of London. Known as the Crown Jewels, since 1661. You can see the Crown Jewels on display at the Tower of London, but they are not just museum pieces - they are still used by the Royal Family today.
England is the only European country in which the monarch is still crowned according to an ancient ritual. The first coronation of the English king took place around 1200 years ago and the ceremony has hardly changed since.
