In a continuation of her reign as “Queen of Char-ms” British fine jewellery designer Annoushka has designed a limited-edition commemorative Locket Crown Charm to mark the Coronation of King Charles III on May 6th 2023.

The intricately detailed Locket Crown Charm will be a miniature representation of the St Edward’s Crown, which will be worn by King Charles III when he is anointed King. The St Edward’s Crown is shrouded in history, dating back to 1661 and was last worn at the Coronation of the late Queen Elizabeth II. Crafted in solid gold and weighing nearly 5lbs, this unique crown contains 444 gemstones and is only ever worn once, by the incoming monarch.

Slighting less weighty, but no less special, Annoushka’s Crown Charm will be crafted in 18ct yellow and white gold. A central carved amethyst, representing the purple velvet cap, will be surrounded by emeralds, yellow and blue sapphires, rubies and amethysts, with black diamonds and white diamonds to finish.
