The Bohemian Crown Jewels include St. Wenceslas' crown, the royal orb and sceptre, the coronation vestments of the Bohemian kings, the gold reliquary cross, and St. Wenceslas' sword. Experts conduct research and check the condition of the jewels kept in the controlled climate. During the last exhibition five years ago(1998), experts discovered that some of the rubies on the crown -- which were thought to have been among the largest in the world -- are not in fact real.

After 1918 and the establishment of the Czechoslovak Republic the Coronation Jewels ceased to serve their original function, but remained important as symbols of national independence and statehood. According to the ancient tradition and regulations laid down by Charles the Fourth in the 14th century, the jewels are exhibited only to mark special occasions.
