About the crown
The Ogden Crown:
Traditional luxury jeweller, Ogden of Harrogate, was founded in 1893 by James Ogden.
The company established its royal connections nearly a century ago, after Prince George, son of George V and Queen Mary, became a frequent customer of the St James’s store in London.
In celebration of George VI’s Coronation in 1937, Ogden of Harrogate’s team hand-crafted two replicas of the Imperial State Crown. see photos
