In 1838 Queen Victoria had the jewel set into the new Imperial State Crown, at the front, below the Black Prince's Ruby. George VI had a new Imperial State Crown made, almost identical to the old one. The Stewart Sapphire was set in the new crown. Upon the acquisition of the Cullinan diamonds, the Stewart Sapphire was moved to the rear of the crown to make space for the 317 carats (63.4 g) cushion-shaped Cullinan II. Even though the sapphire is extraordinarily large, it is more of historical than monetary value. The sapphire was drilled so that it might be worn in a pendant.
