New gold bracelets of Queen Elizabeth II 1952-1953
Queen Elizabeth II is one of the few monarchs since the Restoration to have been invested with the bracelets.
A new pair of gold bracelets were made for her coronation in 1953 and a symbol of the British Commonwealth of Nations.
Each bracelet is fitted with an invisible hinge and a spring catch which is operated by a cast Tudor rose.
Crimson red velvet linings conceal the inscription engraving on each bracelet “Presented for the Coronation of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by the Governments of the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Pakistan, Ceylon and Southern Rhodesia
