The Queen's Sceptre

The Queen's Sceptre was fashioned by Erik Lundberg in Stockholm in 1830.

It was acquired for the planned coronation of Queen Désirée, to be held that same year.


The Queen's Sceptre is made of gilt silver. More ornate than the King’s Sceptre, it has small amethysts and a sapphire inlaid in the handle. The top of the sceptre consists of four leaves that surround a core decorated with amethysts. Eight more amethysts hang down from the top.
