The Queen’s Ring

Like the sovereign, the Queen Consort is presented with a ring during the Coronation Ceremony. Since the thirteenth century it has been traditional to include a ruby as the principal stone in the ring. This ring was made for the Coronation of William IV and Queen Adelaide in 1831 by Royal goldsmiths, Rundell, Bridge & Rundell.

Since the Coronation of King Edward VII, all Queen’s consort have used Queen Adelaide’s ring at their coronations.
