Richard III's Crown on display in Tewkesbury

A crown has been made for the reburial of Richard III. The 15th-century-style crown has taken 15 months to make and is plated with gold. The circle is set with enamelled white roses and pearls. On the roses are set rubies and sapphires. On the crosses of the crown are more enamelled white roses, set with emeralds and turquoises. 

The crown has been constructed to a size based on the head measurements taken from the king's remains which were discovered in Leicester city centre under a car park in August 2012.
