Tarnish means losing shine, thus the crown has "refulgent" and "radiance".

Explanation

Even though this sentence is short, its tough vocabulary makes it tricky. It is clear enough from the word dazzling that you’re looking for a word that means “brightness” or “brilliance.”

Refulgence and radiance are best; none of the other words match this meaning.

Hence options refulgence, radiance are best fit!
