- Serbian Crown Jewels
Serbia, like most European nations and former
monarchies, has a history of crowns worn by its rulers. Throughout its history, monarchy was a very sacred part of Serbia and to some woven in its very soul. To this day the former monarchy remains popular with some Serbsand its history is reasonably well respected. Serbiahas had many rulers and royal families. As such Serbia has several distinct crowns followed by many jewelsand other treasures of incredible wealth.
Obrenovićcrown closely resembles the Nemanjićcrown, and is thought to be the actual crown itself with slight additions. The Obrenovićcrown has returned to the public and international eye as it was chosen for to be placed on the Serbian Flag and Coat of Arms despite the fact that Serbiais a Republicand no longer a Kingdom. This has had appeal among some sections of the Serbian public who value the history of the monarchy.
KarađorđevićCrown Jewels were created in 1904 for the coronationof King Peter I. The pieces were made from material that included bronzeof Karađorđe's cannon. This gesture was symbolic because 1904 was the 100th anniversaryof the First Serbian Uprising. They were made in Parisby the famous Falise brothers jewelerycompany.
