Thanks for the link, Jonc93! It's not the most beautiful or finest tiara I've seen, but still, the DOC can pull it off quite well.

Camilla wore her Saudi emeralds again, this time to the 2010 Royal Variety Performance on Dec. 9, 2010.

It certainly took Camilla a while to get the emeralds out after she first received them, but she certainly seems to have warmed to them since.

It's a very beautiful necklace. Did Camilla receive a whole emerald parure from the Saudis or just the necklace?

She got a demi-parure: earrings, necklace, and bracelet. I love the Emerald and Sapphire demi-parure's she received and I'm glad she is warming to them. They just need to redo the Ruby one..

I suspect the ruby parure will not be redone until Charles becomes King.

The emeralds were not my favorite at first, but I am gradually warming to the them as well! They look to be very nice stones.

The stones are gorgeous 99! The colour is so deep and delicious. My only request is to shorten the necklace by a few stones so it sits closer to the neck. They can use the spare stones to create a brooch, ring, and/or hair ornament. I'm actually not sure about the Sapphire set though, perhaps I just need to see a better photo. They seem boring and poorly designed in my opinion. Just a diamond necklace with some sapphire pendants plopped on.

Thank you for the reply and for all the info you provided, Prince Johnny! I don't remember seeing the DOC with the emerald earrings and the bracelet. Must be lovely to watch - I hope soon!

Well done, Andrew!! This emerald demi-parure has started to grow on me too!! The bracelet and earrings are equally beautiful.

The Duchess should find ways to wear these beautiful gems more often! Perhaps have a new gown to wear them with??

As previously mentioned, the emeralds have already been used at least 3 times in the last 24 months. For a jewellery collection the size of Camilla's, that is pretty good going.

DELIGHTFUL! I'm also quite pleased to see matching earrings and a bracelet. I do like the necklace at the length it is--but a brooch would be a lovely addition, wouldn't it? As usual, Camilla looks wonderful (and yes, Charles is looking a little sparse :(

This is my first time seeing the Emerald parure- and I'm wild over it! Modern, but not in a Wonder Woman, star trek way! (thinking q sonja?!)
