The Queen of England just celebrated her Diamond Jubilee. Certainly such an important event, like other important events of it's kind are often marked with an assortment of souvenirs and memorabilia. Unfortunately, such things rarely have much sophistication and look like they should be sitting in a souvenir shop next to the snow globes, felt banners, salt and pepper shakers and shot glasses. However, I found one item that showed some refinement. The Diamond Jubilee Commemorative Plate, designed and made in England by Wedgwood. This tasteful plate is made in fine bone china and decorated with platinum and mica. The subtle, understated design features the royal crest and emblems. If you are lucky enough to still find one, it will cost you around $95.00.
