Well, you wouldn't be being cynical, it's well known that the Middle Eastern Royals are extremely generous. For example, the Sultan of Brunei is known to give tips in the form of small bags of rubies. I think that the King of Saudi Arabia has given Camilla these and instead of keeping them until she meets him again, she's giving them a good little outing.

To me it seems very middle-east in it's design... Perhaps a gift from one of the rulers who often presents jewels to visiting royal european ladies...

The Queen Mum's appear to be Octagon and Emerald cut Sapphires, Camillas Oval. It would be unusual to try to cut stones to a new shape, IMO.

Likely to be a gift from the Saudi King.

I have to say that wherever it came from, it's a pretty amazing piece and there seems to be a blue bracelet too. In the future, it could become a parure, what with the blue sapphires that the Queen sometimes wears. I'm not sure of it's name but the Queen wears two sapphire rings, a sapphire and diamond necklace, two sapphire bracelets and a pair of sapphire earrings. Well, the necklace of that parure is a little plain IMO and this necklace of Camilla's would be perfect to replace it. But that's just my dreams!

Why can not be this necklace from a Middle East country and a gift from Charles too: I mean, maybe he bought it on the foreighn trip to give it then to his wife as a love gift...

It's a beautiful piece of jewelry and it suits Camilla.
I also think it's a gift from some abroad visit, though it can also be a gift from Prince Charles.
For some reason the necklace is terribly familiar to me. Maybe they reminded me of the the Queen's saphires.

I think the "new" necklace of unknown origin would make a lovely tiara for her if it were mounted properly.

I agree iowabelle. It would make a good tiara for Camilla but she'd then need a Sapphire and Diamond necklace to go with it.

I thought the exact same thing when I saw the necklace. Sapphires would look great in Camilla's blonde hair. As for a sapphire necklace to match, I don't think it would be that difficult to find a stunning necklace to go along with it.

It looks very much like the necklaces in the Persian/Iranian crown jewels...

Yes I would love to raid her jewelry box as well.

Camilla looks really good in bigger jewelry. I think it has to do with her age. Or perhaps she is just one of those royal ladies who wears grand jewelry well.

I agree. she'll look great with a big jewelry. Perhaps the Russian style tiara and Iranian necklace will fit her well.

Gasp!

Either Camilla has been allowed to rummage through the vaults, Charles has been very generous, or she has a rich admirer.
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

I think the neckalce is too gaudy and over the top. But the brooch is very nice.

They are rubies and her evening gown is dark red wine in colour. Could the necklace be a convertible piece? Surely an item of that size could be worn as a tiara? Its massive

That necklace is a whopper! I think I might prefer it as a tiara. I don't fancy those gigantic splayed neck ornaments, though they seem to be popular at the moment.

I like the heart-shaped brooch. Very attractive.

Thanks muchly for posting the pics.
