At this point in the story it doesn't seem to matter.

Why does anyone have to pick it up? Why can’t they just carry it?

Because some artifacts have an overwhelming compulsion to force someone to grab/ use it.


It's a plot device.

Sounds reasonable. Good example is the Ring in LoR.

Exactly. In the 5E Module "Descent Into Avernus" there is one artifact that essentially picks it own whether the owner wants it or not.

Good example. It is for this express reason I named one of my characters "Gollum" , then it is a foregone conclusion who picks this thing up

Oh no.....now that you mention it, I do have Frodo in my party as well. They are probably going to try and murder each other at the next long rest while the other 2 party members are asleep....this won't end well...need to change one of their names....

The Crown grants +1 to all Saving Throws but I am not sure if that is only after you insert the first gem.

Hm, never noticed such description in Crown properties. Is it hided?

The properties of the Crown are hidden, yes, but the Saving Throw bonuses are +1 higher than they should be (for the character wearing the Crown).
