Imperial State Crown

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 

My reference "The Crown Jewels 1998" 
Claude Blair (ed) (1998) The Crown Jewels, The History of the Coronation Regalia in the Jewel House of the Tower of London, London: The Stationery Office Limited. In two volumes. General editor: Claude Blair, with 8 authors providing various sections.
