English: From the Royal Casket, also known as the ring of W?adys?aw IV. A square diamond, so-called diamatus punctatus, sharply cut in the form evoking a pyramid was associated with the Swedish dominion. Due to the deposition of Sigismund III Vasa in Sweden, only a copy, executed for the coronation of Charles IX of Sweden in 1607 (probably by the goldsmith Ruprecht Miller or Antonij Groot the Elder) ,was found to complement the existing five Swedish royal insignia made for Eric XIV's coronation in 1561. The copy, displayed in the Royal Armory in Stockholm (Livrustkammaren inv. no 32/24), is a gold ring adorned with black enamel, smoky quartz diamatus punctatus and six small rock crystals.
