I do like Camilla's engagement ring, and I am actually excited that Camilla is wearing some of the Queen Mother's jewels. It's a shame that some of the older pieces (from the 1920s) had been retired and I really like seeing these Art Deco pieces (for the first time in my life!).

It is very exciting to see these Art Deco pieces on the Duchess. They suit her quite well.
Some of the QM's pieces have been retired because of deterioration. I seem to recall that the Strathmore Rose tiara was retired because it is so badly tarnished it is about to fall apart and must be reset.

Maybe if all the poster sent $1.00 (or the equivalent) they might be able to reset in a platinum setting. Just a thought.

I had wondered what had happened to the Strathmore Rose tiara as I've always thought it was a pretty piece. Thanks for the info.

Tiaras made with silver frames and settings require regular cleaning and ongoing maintenance. Hence the preference for gold (heavy) or best of all, platinum (more expensive, but lighter, stronger than gold thus requiring less metal, and more durable).

I love that the brooch has some meaning to it.

Although this isn't the most beautiful piece of jewellery I have seen, the whole story is quite interesting. Thanks for sharing Muriel!

‘Yereven My Love’: Prince Charles Hosts Dinner to Celebrate British and Armenian Charities at Windsor Castle | Asbarez Armenian News

Pictures of C&C at the Armenian dinner at Windsor Castle earlier this month. Difficult to tell from the pictures, but I think the diamond necklace first seen in the US in 2005 made an appearance again.

See link above. Camilla had a new 4 string pearl / choker necklace on when she visited a nursing home yesterday

A close-up picture of the new pearl and diamond choker that Camilla wore earlier this month, and then again today at a school in Hammersmith, in West London. Not a great picture of Camilla, but certainly the best close-up of the necklace we have seen so far.

I like the necklace as well as the way she wore it - the paved diamond part is exceptional!

She wore it just recently but I dont remember seeing it before. Perhaps the diamond pendant is an older jewel from the BRF? The duchess wore here aquamarines tonight for the Alice and Wonderland premier.

The aquamarine necklace is beautiful - exactly the right size... Now if only she had a tiara to go with it....

An acquamarine tiara would be lovely for Camilla, though she may have to wait till she gets the top job - there is a rather big acquamarine tiara waiting for her to rework!

I like her aquamarine necklace too. It flatters her a lot! Now looking forward to that new tiara - it definitely intrigued me!

Surely she doesn't nee to wait?! If Charles can afford to keep buying her all these fabulous necklaces (or someone is giving them to her...) surely a tiara could somehow get slipped in?! She could rework one of the necklace perhaps...? And besides, some of the necklaces (ruby breastplate, sapphires) would suit being fitted to a base as a tiara.

IMO, its not about Charles not being able to afford to get her a new tiara. My sense is that this is a PR issue. The BRF do not want to appear to be splurging on yet more ostentatios things like tairas. In her reign to date, HM herself has only got 3 tiaras made. The necklaces / demi-parures that Camilla has acquired are quite low profile - the higher profile ones (the ruby breastplate, the emeralds etc) are all gifts.

Yeah - I see your point, but all the same, do these things really get picked up in the media? I don't think it's that newsworthy outside of Royal watchers really...
