They're probably different necklaces. The aquamarine has three strands of pearls and the unidentified pink stone has five. I can't recall if she has any others at the moment, so I can't tell you the details of those.

She also has another three-strand and five-strand chokers, as well as a four-strand one.
In total, Camilla has six magnificent chokers, as well as a couple of choker-like necklaces.

She also has a ruby choker with red beads interspersed among the pearls; not my favorite.

Although I've always thought the beads in that one to be rubies as well, it has been suggested they might actually be (shudder) mere glass.
Anyway, all the chokers and choker-like necklaces the Duchess owns (that I know of).

Nice photo summary of all her chokers, Artemisia; thank you. The pink topaz remains my favorite with the aquamarine running second. After that, pic 1 rounds up my top three.

Still can't decide which choker I like best - the aquamarine one or the topaz one.
The topaz is more elegant, but I love the combination of aquamarine and yellow gold.

My top three as well. They just scream "I'm a royal - and a bloody important one!"

Topaz is my # 1- the aquamarine is #2!

Now I want her to wear those matching pink topaz earrings with the choker. Please make me happy, Camilla!

Thanks for posting them. Until today, I always thought she changed the clasp/brooch.

I like 4, 2, 1, 3, 6, 5

That would knock my socks off too. The pieces are gorgeous separately, but together...wow. Hopefully we'll be treated to a picture of that sometime in the near future.

Artemisia - you amaze me. Not only do you have the answer, you have great photos of the choker sets so that we can see the differences in the pearls. Hats off to you.

I like #6 hands down - I like small and delicate. If I was forced to choose a top three it would be #6 by a yard and then #4 and then #3. though I probably wouldn't wear the larger two - just look too heavy for my taste.

IMO, they are all different necklaces.

You are welcome, everyone.
I've become addicted to Camilla's (and of course, the Queen's) jewellery collection, so it's my pleasure.

Definitely different.

In the 2 four-strand chokers (number 1 and 2), the pearls are different sizes (pearls in 1 are bigger, apart from the smaller pearls next to the clasp).
The 3 three-strand chokers (topaz, red glass and small amethyst - 3, 5, 6) all have different-sized pearls. Topaz and the red glass ones are similar in sizes, apart from the pearls right next to the clasp: the topaz one has all the same size, whereas the red glass one has much smaller ones.
The five-strand topaz choker (number 4) is all on its own.

the red glass looks like it could be garnet

Now if she'd only oblige us by wearing those matching earrings!
I've seen te matching earrings too and am still endeavouring to find the evidence!

Check Nico's post #258 for a picture of the earrings, although I know I've seen another photo of her wearing them.
