Every crown at the coronation will be filled with meaning

A few blocks away, at the former headquarters of Crown Jewelers Garrard, you can shop for fine jewelry tiaras starting at just $1890, for scalloped diamond and pearl versions. (Online, the Garrard tiara is available at starting at more affordable prices at $18,.)
