Not that she needed any help. Camilla had quite a formidable collection on her own without the help of either of her husbands.

That is certainly true! She has inherited many lovely pieces from her mother, and of course Charles gave her many trinkets as well. Now, with the inclusion of many of the Queen Mother's pieces, she has really expanded the jewel box--but I like how she has certain pieces she enjoys wearing repeatedly.

The Delhi Durbar was a originally designed to be worn high on the head as a diadem. It was definitely "opened up" so Camilla could wear it as a tiara more comfortably.

Given that Camilla is the second wife of Prince Charles and they do not have any children, it would make sense that any royal jewels would return to the Crown after her death and/or be left to William and Harry's wives in the future.

There is no doubt that the Delhi Durbar was remodelled after the Durbar. What I am not sure about is whether the change for it to be used as a tiara and not a diadem was done under the instructions of Queen Mary (quite like she had the Culinan and the Cambridge emeralds removed) or more recently, specifically for Camilla.

I think that it was just the frame that was changed and 2 new elements to replace the larger stones- didnít the Queen Mother wear it once?

The QM wore it in 1947. Are you suggesting the changes were made specifically for Camilla or were previously made?

When it was later remodelled then during them time it ws in the posession of the Queen Mother as it was on an exhibition in the Vicotira and albert Museum in i believe 2000 and then it looked the same way how it looks today.

No I would say that the changes were made before it was given to the QM, by Queen Mary. I think that because of the designe if the frame is removed that it can be made to close or widen at the need of the wearer.

I have to say the Majesty article on Camilla's jewels was very disappointing. They could have learnt more just by reading these forum pages. Or they could or should have done their homework and made an official effort to find out. Lazy journalism in my view for an otherwise reasonably good magazine.

I agree about the Majesty article--if they are going to write an article they need to get the facts and information straight.

On another note, have we seen this lovely jewel since Peter and Autumn married last May?

That's right! I can't believe I forgot that; here's a pic and you can see the earrings:

The brooch is another from the Queen Mother's collection.

This brooch has made several appearnces including one at Trooping the Colour - sorry I don't keep track of data for the DoC though (too busy cataloguing the Queen's brooches!)

Coincidentally, there is a photo of the Queen Mother wearing what certainly appears to this very brooch, posted by Joe on the Royal Jewels board:

I have a picture of the Queen Mother wearing this same brooch when probably The Duchess of York, from the look of the dress fashion.

Seen previously, but another brooch with a difference.
It appears to be gold, diamonds, sapphires and amethysts (?)

That necklace is not too shabby either. I don't remember seeing it before, but that is probably just brain fade. :rolleyes2:

That is a lovely brooch--doesn't she have one with pearls, too?

What a lovely brooch to wear on this occasion. Does anyone know the history of it - I wonder if it's modelled on a famous dancer such as Pavlova?
