It would also be very much appreciated if people did not attack things they are ignorant of, it is so easy to Google and find out facts these days.
Poppy Day and the good it generates is a tradition very dear to British people and if they get annoyed at people for calling it tacky, even out of ignorance, they cannot be blamed especially when the, what seemed to be an insult, was not written once but twice.

One of the poppies is in the style worn in the UK and the other is the kind worn in Canada. A very nice gesture.

She has worn another brooch at the wreath laying ceremony and wore her pearl choker*(with the blue green stone) to an event last night.

Oh that was such a considerate move on the Duchess's part. Very moving.

The Duchess's engagement ring and a rather hilarious expressive photo of Camilla. :) It seems to just beam light rather than sparkle.
The Ring

Pearl and Diamond(?) Earrings - These seem to be her favourite and cant blame her, they're gorg!

Brooch - Worn during the wreath laying, cant quite make out what it is.

Pearl Choker - Are those rubies in the centre?

I didn't realize they were differrent poppies.

What a nice ring! I thought it was a red stone (garnet perhaps) before or am I thinking of the red dress?

This one's been worn previously. I believe it is rock crystal.

Look at the size of this stone! The Prince Of Wales And Duchess Of Cornwall Visit Canada - Day 4 - Pictures - Zimbio

Yes, it is the rock crystal and diamond brooch, probably art deco. She wears it often.

Who attacked those poppies? I hope you're not referring to me. My thought was that you can't wear a historical brooch with such precious stones so close to paper poppies. Other members also shared the same thought(see above). Anyone has the right to remember whomever they want by wearing whatever they want, I totally agree

I have looked hard and can´t find anyone else saying that or agreeing with that opinion , but I am pleased that the Queen and other members of the royal family do wear their poppies with pride held by their beautiful diamond brooches and I should hope they don´t worry about looking tacky.
Surely that is enough of poppies for now, next year you will know why they are worn and perhaps like me you will actually see they look very pretty and appreciate the goodwill that goes with wearing them.

For those of us who are familiar with the British way of paying tribute to the people who lost their lives in the service of their country, it is a familiar sight to see members of the Royal Family wearing the poppy during the week leading up to 11th November. For example, if you look at photos of the Queen/Queen Mother you'll see this. They wear what they might normally choose for an official engagement but add the poppy. A comparable though not an exact comparison might be the way coloured ribbons are often worn by stars at public events to mark their support for a cause - these are often worn alongside evening gowns/elaborate jewellery. No one considers this odd or inappropriate but understands it is intended as a mark of respect/support.

Ok, Wisteria. If you say so...It's obvious that you misunderstood everything I said, but it doesn't matter. Life is too short.

I'm sorry, but I find a "tacky" poppy commemorating the millions and millions of men and women who died the most horrible of deaths far more important and beautiful than mere stones.

Camilla wore her Maple Leaf brooch again today. I hope she takes it out for a few more spins actually, the brooch is one of my new favorites. It sparkles wonderfully when seen on video.

Guys, the significance of the poppy has been fully explained for those who weren't aware. Enough has been said; let's get back to discussing the DOC's jewels.

thanks.

The ring is the large emerald cut diamond, that was a gift to Q. Mother from her husband, and Charles gave it to the Duchess as engagement ring.

That ring is simply fabulous. It really is one hell of a knockout . . . . not at all flashy and trashy as some of the "Hollywood" wannabes around. Thank you for the opportunity of a surreptitious drool.

Almost all pieces are lovely! My top favorite: the Maple Leaf brooch and the pearl drop earrings. The DoC wears some of the most sophisticated jewels!
