In the close up pic, it actually looks looks like a purple stone, maybe an amethyst rather than a sapphire.

It does have a purplish hue to it but that could just be the lighting. Are those earrings part of the saudi sapphire set?

I think the earrings are part of the Saudi sapphire and diamond set.

I agree the pendant is probably a massive sapphire, the purple hues could be as a result of the lighting.

The pendant looks amazing. Is that a "minor" collet necklace the pendant is suspended from?

Lovelt to see a new piece of jewellery - it's a lovely pendant. Not so keen on the earrings, I think they are part of the Saudi set because they resemble the setting for the necklace.

Whew!!! About 30 carats, and very lovely. The necklace is wrong for it tho. It needs a flat, necklace with some chasing to match the pendulous pendant. It would help it hang straight, too.

I agree, the pendant is lovely. Perhaps the collet necklace could be a bit shorter, which would allow the pendant to sit better, and higher.

Here's a slightly better picture of the pendant.

Yes, I was also wondering if it was maybe an old family heirloom or maybe purchased at auction. Does anyone one know anything about it?

Thanks for the closeup of the pendant, Spheno. While the necklace is lovely, I also think a sturdier, flatter necklace would benefit the pendant and help it lay flat against the neck. That is a gorgeous stone and a magnificent setting.

Oops - that pendant needed a test run on that necklace.

It's a fantastic stone, but I am not a fan of the way the setting does not really want to lay flat/straight. It looks ok in the last photo, but the rest look like it's 'top heavy' by the stone being too deep and the setting to flat. I vote for a rework more like that padparadsha sapphire she wears which is about the same size but seems much better balanced in the setting.

ITA w/everyone saying the pendant needs a different necklace, a shorter one, to keep it flat. Even so, that is one gorgeous piece of jewelry. If a gift from Charles, the he's just like my Dad, they both have incredible taste when it comes to jewelry gift giving.

Perhaps the necklace was received on one of the more recent visits to the Middle-East

Was tied on her wrist during the recent trip to India.

Lying low for the last 5 years because of the economic environment, will we now see Camilla take out more of the larger pieces she has access to?
