The emeralds are divine! They really "pop" against the white jacket she's wearing.

They are indeed lovely. Also the photo of the Queen wearing the Vladimir tiara with the pearls made me wonder when did she last wear them with the emeralds? It seems that she always uses the pearls these days. Anyone know?

I found the emerald drops in the tiara being worn NOVEMBER 08 1999 - The Queen Arriving For The State Banquet In Accra, Ghana.
Anyone know of a more recent wearing?

Just found one myself - with Nelson Mandela at Buckingham Palace on May 3, 2000 in Windsor

New brooch! Well, for me at least. Nothing too spectacular though. I am glad Camilla is proving to be somewhat of a brooch lover. We won't have to worry about HM's brooch collection gathering dust in the vaults for at least another generation.

I can't say that I am too impressed with this brooch. It looks like a chink of armor with some nondescript stones. I must say that I like the way she has worn a matching scarf with her jacket, however. It completes the outfit, (as much of it as can be seen). :)

Great, I wonder if these stones are blue sapphires. And how do you think the DOC could have acquired this brooch?! The Qatari's have been travelling to London quite often lately... Just saying.

She has already worn it in 2005 or 2006. And it was once again in Scotland, so maybe it has a Scottish link.

I loved the colour and contrast of the outfit and jewelry which the Duchess of Cornwall wore when shes visited the Children's Reading Bus at King's College, University of Aberdeen on January 20, 2011.

The picture gives not only a wonderful shot of the aformentioned brooch but also her trademark triple string of pearls nestled in the tartan scarf and a fabulous shot of her favourite pearl earings.

The earrings may if fact just be her all out favourite as she wears the so often. (See also ** above)

It's a very traditional Scottish design - one frequently used to anchor a swatch or scarf of tartan fabric.(This style is in every Scottish tourist shop) The stones are most often semi-precious local quartz or similar. It would be very rare and exceptional to have precious stones in a brooch such as this one.

Thanks for clarifying! I thought the brooch was brand new, so I was wrong. MARG, thank you for the extra photos! The DOC has a nice collection of pearl jewellery!

Hey GillW, do you know what the technical name for these kind of brooches are? I've seen the general kinds but I've also seen some gorgeous one. I remember once seeing a Scotsmen wearing a huge amethyst one on his tartan. If living in Scotland meant I cld wear a brooch everyday, I'd pack my bags in a heartbeat

The Duchess wore the diamond serpent necklace(one of my favs!) and some pretty amethyst earrings. I can't remember if I've seen these earrings before, I know that she does have some amethyst jewelry but I remember them being smaller.

I'm not aware of a definite name, but they are generally "Celtic" brooches because of the decoration. Not heard of anything more specific.

The Duchess wore these brooches out today, its the most upclose photo of them I've seen to date. I like them very much, but then I'm quite keen on these kind of brooches.

I've never noticed this before but it looks like she is wearing some sort of jeweled horseshoe around her wrist in the second row of photos. Anyone know anything about it?

It's for luck, although I admit I've never seen it before.

Great Royal Weddings: Prince Charles of Great Britain Marries Camilla Parker Bowles - StyleList
Someone must have given this to her when they did the walkabout after the wedding. It's only made of silver plastic, usually has a ribbon on and can be found with other wedding paraphernalia (including silver plastic bells and shoes) at high street stationers like Clintons Cards or Birthday Cards. The horseshoe is a sign of good luck (when the prongs are facing upwards in order to "hold the luck" and many homes have a real horseshoe over the fireplace or front door.

First outing of a new element of the well known arabian sapphire parure (see the earrings) or a pendant taken from the main necklace ?
