Thank you so much! It's very pretty indeed.

Camilla was wearing a stunning necklace last night, a huge purple, presumable, amethyst connected with 5 strands of pearls. It has a name I guess but I don't know it.
This is the one she wore last night.

Here's a closeup of the choker, one of my all-time favorite pieces of jewelry Camilla owns which Charles gave to her. This is magnificent; the center stone has been called a pink topaz, although it does appear like a light amethyst, and just look at those diamonds surrounding it. She has a pair of gorgeous matching earrings which I once saw a photo of her wearing, but she favors her pearl earrings with this necklace. I'd love to see the outfit she wore with this last night.

It might even be a kunzite. I love this necklace!

Wow! That's a gorgeous necklace. I love the color of the stone.

That looks like a padparadscha sapphire. Sapphires come in all colors.

Does anybody know anything about the brooch Camilla wore on her coat for Rememberance Sunday?

I think they just call it the 5 strand Pearl and Pink Topaz Choker, which is really pedestrian considering it is a work of art. A stunning piece and one of my favourites.

But worst of all? We haven't got a photo of it's latest outing!

I made the same mistake myself thinking it was a brooch, but Nico on Camilla's fashion thread said it's the 4th Battalion of The Rifles badge. Camilla is royal colonel of this regiment. A nice touch, I thought.

Here's Camilla wearing another of her pearl chokers, a four strand, at a reception for the National Osteoperosis Society at St. James Palace. Link courtesy of Muriel on Camilla's fashion thread:

This is a closer view of it from another occasion:

Thanks for sharing those, Baroness. It's a very pretty necklace. I like the blue shade of the stone.

That might be a diamond and enamel clasp, which may give it a blue coloration.

I love the shade of blue. Goes wonderfully against the black of her jacket.

A lovely choice of colour. I hope she loans these pieces to Kate sometime.

The diamond serpent necklace and the earrings Camilla wore at her wedding to Charles were out again last night at C&C attended a movie premiere and a reception for the Press at BP.

I love, love. love this necklace (paired, of course, with her favourite pearl earrings), the colour absolutely glows and the colour of her dress enriches the clasp which, in turn, highlights her eyes.

Is it new or did I just miss it's many outings?

I love that she's color-coordinated her jewelry and dress. Very lovely ensemble.

I always liked that serpent necklace; I think Queen Alexandra and perhaps Queen Mary wore bracelets in the serpent style as well.
