and amethysts (although we never see the Kent ones) and gorgeous pink topaz (Camilla's choker but still uncertain if is it pink topaz or light amethysts)!

Cool

I think it's a pink topaz in Camilla's choker.

I think you are correct, I just remember some discussion at some point about the piece. It also has matching earrings and is, in my opinion, a truly magnificant set of jewels!

Agreed, very classy, and very Camilla.

Speaking of the pink topaz choker, the Duchess brought it out again at Trooping the Colour for us to admire!

Camilla and her choker

This is the best choker ever, IMO.

It is truly beautiful. Between Camilla's topaz choker and Diana's sapphire choker, it is difficult to choose. Both are beyond description and are exquisite...

Probably my favourite piece of jewelry owned by the Duchess, I just love this choker so much and I don't really consider myself a choker kinda jewelie. The entire centre piece is exquisite and the pearls divine. It seems like the centre piece can still be detached and worn as a brooch. I would love to see it pinned to a future sash of some royal order one day...

I have to agree, it is my favourite too. I think that pearl chokers are her favourite necklaces, she does, after all, have 6 or is it 7 different ones to choose from!

Hi everyone!

Today I found this photo of Camilla from 2006 and wondered if anything known about this emerald and diamond (?) brooch. Is it another jewel from Queen Elizabeth? Has anyone else been spoted with it? Has The Duchess worn it since the Queen's birthday service?

Thanks in advance,
Bobby

If I am not mistaken, this brooch made its debut for the Easter service in 2006. I do not think it has been used much since. Commentary at the time suggested that it was from QEQMs collection.

You've said it all, Udyusa! I have a soft spot for the topaz choker, I have to say. Camilla looked wonderful from head to toe of course!

She did indeed, Noor! I happen to think that pink is especially flattering on blondes and very feminine. :)

LOL! Wymanda. I think this time round the comparisons are only about the individual pieces of jewelry and not the owners.

Thank you, Princejohnny, for coming to my rescue! That is exactly what I meant. My comment had Nothing to do with the owners but rather the pieces of jewelry. I am sorry that it was misconstrued....

I understood your comment perfectly the first time. The choker with the pink topaz is a stunning piece of jewelry.
