12. The State Diadem
Known as The George IV State Diadem, the crown was originally made in 1820 for King George IV, and he wore it on his way to Westminster Abbey for his coronation. The crown features English roses, Scottish thistles, and Irish shamrocks, representing the three home nations of the United Kingdom.

Since King George IV's reign, the crown has been passed down from monarch to monarch, and so far five queens have worn it: Victoria, Alexandra, Mary, Elizabeth (the Queen Mother), and Elizabeth II.
