Queen Victoria’s Diamond Crown whose lightness and elegance contrast with other British crowns, was ordered by Queen Victoria for her personal use. She found the Imperial State Crown too heavy, and very much resented the complicated procedures involved when removing the crown from the Tower of London. The small crown is a beautiful crown of heraldic Tudor form, which was made from Queen Victoria’s own expense in 1870. It was the crown perhaps most associated with Queen Victoria .
