Here's a link to a video mentioning that the ruby and diamond necklace is valued at 25 million dollars. Very serious bling. 6abc.com: Prince Charles, Camilla Visit Philadelphia

In Philadelphia this weekend the Duchess of Cornwall has worn two "new" pieces of jewellery. There is currently no information available as to provenance.

Gigantic Necklace (ruby or amethyst?)

Diamond & Sapphire Drop Brooch

Camilla looks absolutely stunning with the necklace!
I just read that it is made of 36 rubies interlaced with diamonds.
I agree, it resembles a tiara. I would like to know if itīs an old jewellery or a new one and wheather itīs a present from the Prince.
Can anybody tell me?

To me it looks more like it could have been some gift from the middle east trips, its a bit gaudy for my taste but the Duchess wears it well, her jewellery box is growing day by day. the brooch is very nice I think

There was speculation that Camilla's necklace was a present from Charles, but Clarence House would not confirm this. It was believed to be the first time she had worn the jewels to an official event.

This London

She looked stunning and oozed opulence.

Her jewelry is amazing!

The person who wrote the article needs a basic math refresher course, there happens to be 37 rubies in the necklace.

Apparantly the necklace is from Camilla's private collection. I'd hazard a guess that it's a gift from a certain Saudi King.

Camilla has the advantage of being of a mature age and a little plump - she can pull off wearing such a large piece of jewelry and not look like it is wearing her. She looked truly stunning.

If you can afford 36 rubies, what's just one more!

It's an absolutely stunning necklace and I also agree with those that said it kind of resembles a tiara.

I think the necklace is stunning! Its so regal looking. Definately looks like something Queen Mary would have worn. It would be interesting to see it comverted to a tiara!

WOW! Thanks Waren for the pictures, the necklace is gorgeous. Or better, the Duchess looks stunning wearing that necklace, there are few people it would actually suit.
At last the Royal Family has found someone, who can wear Queen Mary's jewels with a style!

Avalon,
I totally agree. Now all we need is a smashing tiara (and earrings, possibly a stomacher?) to create spectacular bling.

I love those things! They are the height of amazing! I bet Queen Mary had a dozen of them that are still tucked away somewhere.

My money is on that necklace -- which I think is just too big and gaudy -- being a personal gift from Charles. As I said, cattily, in another post, we all know how much he treasures Camilla's decolletage...

That necklace reminds me of a couple of the Duchess of Windsor's pieces; there was one with amethysts and turquoise and a gold one studded with emeralds and rubies.
