The Jewel House: Home of the Crown Jewels
Without a doubt the highlight of the Tower of London, the Jewel House boasts a stunning collection of 23, 578 gemstones that constitute the Crown Jewels. The jewels are placed under armed guard in the Jewel House and showcase a unique collection of royal regalia that are still used by The Queen for national ceremonies. Jewels presently in use are marked with an 'in use' sign. The legendary Koh-i-Nur diamond is also placed in the Jewel House.
