She looks spectacular! The only thing she needs is a sash.......maybe soon.
I love to see the collet necklaces--I am assuming this is the same one she wore for her 60th birthday party? It was the Queen Mum's.
I supposed this tiara is her signature piece--don't get me wrong, I do love it. It's very impressive and she wears it wonderfully but I would love to see something else. It's becoming redundant.

I agree jcb, she looks wonderful, but I wish that we could see something different. I'd love to see her wearing amethysts.

It is very interesting that Princess Diana was Princess of Wales for more than 10 years and except the Royal Family Order and a Dutch Order(personal gift of QBeatrix) she did not receive any orders...
The Queen seems to be veeeery precautious about giving out orders. I wonder how will it be during Charles'(or Williams) reign?

The Queen is picky about who she gives orders to, but she does hand them out eventually. All of her children now have the Order of the Garter, even if I don't necessary think they all deserve it. (I also wonder why she hasn't given it to the Duchess of Kent, who I think has done a great deal for Great Britain over the decades. Her de facto separation from her husband shouldn't diminish that contribution in any way.)

When it comes to orders from other countries, Diana tended to travel to non-royal countries that might not have these orders or that do not have events that require guests to wear them if they have received one. I've noticed that republican countries will only have full regalia at gala dinners when a royal head of state is making the state visit, and then usually only ones of the stature of Queen Elizabeth II. Official visits involving other royals tend to be more relaxed, or less formal, as are state visits between non-royal countries. Since Diana only made official visits, she might have had more orders than we ever saw her wearing.

Having said that, many other monarchs are equally picky about giving out their orders. The King of Spain rarely gives out his country's highest order: his own daughters do not have this order, nor do many other foreign royals. In fact, he doesn't usually give it to queen consorts or queen consorts, at least not right away.

I completely agree--she seems to like the stone -- I just love those large amethyst earrings she wears--and I think she could do the Kent demi-parue real justice.

As for Orders--I was expecting to see the RVO, too. It would be nice if she had one to wear. She has more than proven she's in this relationship for the long haul.

The trouble with all of us is that every time we see something new we just want more. More, heaps more, pile it on . . . . open up those vaults!!

What is this?

http://legacyeditorial.gettyimages.c...80633961&cdi=0

Is this brooch a pin that was given to her for being head of some flying organization?

Does anyone have any background on it?

Thanks

It's an RAF badge of some sort and has a crown surmounting the wings.

I'm sorry - I thought it was really obvious - this is the insignia of the Royal Air Force

Well, dear members, could someone kindly come to my rescue here. The Noble Warren perhaps.?? I just purused the latest issue of Majesty Magazine and in it are picutures of the state dinner for the President of France. The Queen is magnificent in her ruby bedecked splendor and in the background of the foursome there is a picture of various and sundry royals including Princess Camilla. She is a wearing a tiara which I do not recognize. Of course it may be one that she has worn before the photo of which is not sufficiently clear or perhaps she is wearing a new contraption upon the ducal head??? Pant, pant, drool in anticipation. If anyone would be kind enough to pander to my insatiable and incurable ongoing madness I would be grateful. Cheers.

Thomas, she was wearing the Boucheron (sp?) Honeycomb tiara for the State Dinner for the Sarkozys. I know you've seen it before, and atop Camilla's head

Thomas, did you think that Camilla wearing a new tiara hadn't rated a mention in her own jewels thread? Oh, ye of little faith.

Not ye of little faith, O Most Noble and Glorious Warren, Moderator Splendissimus, but ye of little brain. Between the Lyme disease and my chocoholism plus my newly discovered passion, ie lust, for roses I am just not in my right mind or anybody's right mind for that matter. But the picture really is not very clear. And my roses were having a fit, or the Black Spot or some such and I was really distraught when I read that article, by way of soothing the shattered nerves. They have revived and fortunately I have not yet lived down to my real name: ie, the Black Thumb of Death. but it may come yet. Cheers.

Wow. I'd say this was Diamond and Amythyst but I could be wrong. Whatever it is, it's absolutely gorgeous. I'd say that Camilla was the best dressed guest at the wedding. I've love to see the centre of the choker added to some kind of diamond necklace so we could see it with a tiara.

Warren, thank you so much for the photo. I was viewing it at work but couldn't open the pic. But wow! It was well worth the wait. :w00t2:
Any idea of it's provenance or is it another "little gem" from the legenary vaults?

Judging by it's setting, the use of gold, and the detailing of the centrepiece, I'd put money on it that it's Victorian. Whether from the vaults or a private purchase, who knows.

Who knows?? The wonderful experts on the RJWMB know!
Thanks to CindyM: The set of pink topaz and diamonds (originally a brooch, now the chokerís centerpiece, with matching earrings) is Edwardian and was purchased at auction at Sothebyís in the year 2000.
