Armillum

Armillum

(armill), an embroidered band of cloth of gold, jewelled; sometimes, but not invariably, used at the coronation of English sovereigns. In the form for the coronation of king George II, the following direction occurs: " Then the king arising, the dean of Westminster taking the armill from the master of the great wardrobe, putteth it about his majesty's neck," etc. Its symbolism was the divine mercy of the Great Ruler of all things encompassing the sovereign crowned.
