Re: Imperial State Crown

The panel shows how the Imperial State Crown has been reshaped for each monarch. I expect it to be reshaped for Charles III.

According to The Crown Jewels 1998, the history is recorded on a plaque mounted over the back of the Black Prince's Ruby - 

Rundell Bridge & Co, Jewellers to Queen Victoria, 28th June 1838 
Partly remade by Garrard & Co, 1902 and 1932 
Entirely remounted for Coronation of King George VI, 12th May 1937, by Garrard & Co 
Remodelled and partly remounted for Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II by Goldsmiths & Silversmiths Co Ltd 2nd June 1953
