To commemorate the coronation of King Charles III on May 6, a London jeweler has designed a signet ring for the monarch using generative AI.
“With King Charles III’s ascension to the throne as king, a new ring to accompany his new title is in order,” said Taylor & Hart in a blog post.
Following the death of Queen Elizabeth last September, her eldest son Prince Charles acceded to the throne at the age of 73. He will be crowned in Westminster Abbey, following tradition, wearing St. Edward's Crown, which is made of solid gold. Camilla Parker Bowles will be crowned Queen Consort.
“In celebration of the upcoming coronation, we’ve designed a meticulously detailed bespoke signet ring with motifs symbolic of the four nations of the realm, including the Irish shamrock, Scottish thistle, Welsh daffodil and English rose," according to the jeweler.

“Reflecting His Royal Highness’ love of nature and the royal affiliation with 18-carat Welsh gold, each of these motifs are incorporated in the design using traditional filigree, an ornamental openwork composed of wires of gold,” the jeweler said.
The chosen design features a "C" for Charles and an "R" for Rex (Latin for king).
“The design incorporates the official monogram with the King’s initial ‘C’ intertwined with the letter ‘R’ for Rex – Latin for king – with ‘III’ denoting Charles III, and the crown above the letters.”
“The royal cypher is embossed backwards, in order that the signet could be used as a monogram for sealing letters in melted wax.”
