I can assure you that both Sophie and Camilla have worn it. Why don't you check out Sophie wearing it at Madeleine of Sweden's wedding or Camilla wearing it at the King of the Netherlands inauguration.

I believe you !! I'm merely stating how peculiar they don't wear the complete regalia.

I know, and the sash on its own just looks odd. The Grand Cross level of any order is always a sash and star whether it's a British or foreign one. If the dress code is black tie a tiara and the star on it's own can be worn but if white tie it should always be both. There are no occasions when the sash should be worn on it's own.

There must be a good reason for it!

There are no hard and fast rules, IMO. The Star tends to get used in more formal settings, typically the state dinner in London for incoming state visits. Perfectly understandable for Sophie to not wear it to the birthday celebrations, the dress code there was somewhat more relaxed (in as much as a white tie event can be!)

Yes. Anna from Countess of Wessex blog speculates that it might be:
''Amber earrings & necklace, possibly a gift from Poland in 2004 but this has not been confirmed.’’

The Amber earrings are really very lovely but I don't like the necklace.

The actual elements, the jewels used, are beautiful and very elegant

But how it was crafted was poorly done. The base is way too visible. You cant even attempt to hide the base in hair. Poorly done IMO, which is a shame, as the elements are lovely.

Ummmm......I'm not sure, I think Sophie's is a bit bigger and in a mix of cushion and oval shape (? not a perfect round shape) while Alice's are smaller and have a rounder shape. Maybe I am wrong as the photo of Alice with the Aquamarine doesn't show the tiara perfectly.

I agree. It seems that that the aquamarine in Sophie's tiara is much, much bigger than the stones in Princess Alice's tiara. And the stones are definitely shaped.

I like this 'Gemstone Suite'. Love the necklace for sure. IMO the pictures are poor quality, do not do her justice. Think she likely looked great.

The necklace and earrings are lovely but I don't think it goes well with the tiara. There are too many colors. Is that gold?
