Diamond giant De Beers has produced a crown for the jubilee—studded with 974 diamonds.
The centrepiece is a huge 73 carat diamond, suspended above a diamond-studded sphere.
But if your budget doesn’t quite stretch that far, you could try the QVC “diamonique” version.
It is set to be auctioned. But even this knock-off has been valued at £10,528.
Not enough diamonds for you? How about the holographic portrait of the queen—which features a crown encrusted with more than 1,000 diamonds.
The crown “sits” on her maj’s holographic head, and took more than a year to make from over 10,000 images.
It seems not everyone’s so keen to hang around for the weekend of pageantry.
Travel agents report a surge in demand for holidays abroad over the jubilee weekend.
People apparently don’t want “staycations”—but are booking up to go to Tunisia and Egypt.
