Good to see this "mystery" diamond necklace of Camilla's reappear after a few years. The earrings have had regular outings with the collet collier necklace and the Greville 5 strings.

I must say, Camilla is displaying these jewels quite impressively.

On a different note, I haven't seen any photos from the Diplomatic Corp Reception.....anything worth posting?

I think The Duchess of Cornwall wore this diamond serpent necklace as well during the State Banquet in honour of the Norwegian royals back in 2005.

Thats right, but it has not been seen much since early 2006.

I"ve always rather liked this necklace. Didn't Charles purchase it for her?
And, loving the Duchess in that gown!

Charles is meant to have bought it for Camilla in the early part of this century, and it is rumoured to hav been one of the Keppel jewels.

I too love the gown - it is wonderfully theathrical, and I just love the way Camilla continues to recycle these suingature pieces over the years. That said, I am not sure if some of her more recent gowns will be that "durable"

That's not really the best angle or background for the bug brooch. It's actually a lovely piece--I believe it is art deco in its design and at one point insect and bug brooches were really popular. There is a photo of Camilla wearing it on black velvet background and it really pops and looks lovely. I can't find --it was on Magnolia's website which is not tragically not up any longer. Perhaps someone else has it?

Camilla is very fond of the stick insect brooch as her father bought it for her.

Not as such (not by me anyway! ...not to date...) But that doesn't mean I don't take any notice...I try to keep a picture record of each one I spot her wearing, and remember snippets if I read anything interesting. I also note any Camilla wears which formerly belonged to the queen Mum....

In the next edition of Majesty, the jewellery box of The Duchess of Cornwall will be opened to us. I can't wait!

See below the pearl choker that Camilla is wearing. Does anybody know much about its provenance? Camilla is usually only seen wear it in Scotland, and I think the first time I saw her wear it was on their honeymoon.

I have note of an event in 2006 in London, so it is not exclusive to Scotland

I once read that this pearl choker with a central amethyst or sapphire, don't know, I think she possesses more than one of this kind, was once proporty of The Duchess' mother. I think this one is from her mother; and the one she wore on the Phillips weddings in May is one she received from The Prince of Wales.
But I advice to buy Majesty this month, where the jewellery box of Camilla will be opened to us.

I was under the impression it was a piece of the queen mum's. Where did you get your info?

As for the Majesty article, it's not like Camilla is going to provide an interview. There is nothing she has worn in public that hasn't been mentioned on the forum.
