London is really pulling out all the stops for Queen Elizabeth's Diamond Jubilee, but with 60 years on the throne under her belt, a celebration is definitely in order. It seems that all of Great Britain is getting in on the party, and earlier this week Harrods commissioned 31 luxury labels to design their own version of the now-famous St. Edwards Crown, which the Queen wore at her coronation in 1953.
The crowns, designed by Ferragamo, Mulberry, Tiffany & Co. and De Beers, to name a few, will be on display at Harrods until June 15, but you can check out all the revamped crowns below!
