That is a most beautiful ballerina brooch. I certainly like that more than her bugs. Just gorgeous.

Does anyone know anything about this bracelet? It looks like either cabochen cut, rub-over set, sapphires or possibly even lapis lazuli.

That's the first I've seen this bracelet; it could be either lapis or cabochon sapphires. Very lovely and looks to be a hefty piece.

Definitely not costume jewelry. Van Cleef and Arpels, the original line was made 1967 but this was likely made for the 2007 40th anniversary line. Those are diamonds, saphires and rubies

Artemisia's Royal Jewels: Focus on... Camilla's Jewels: Van Cleef & Arpels Ballerina Brooch

The diamond alone on the face, and all the other jewels, would expect a hefty price tag.

Thank for the info.

Do you have other pics as Instagram is only a blank page?

Also I counted 3 pins plus the 70th anniversary medal.

At Pegasus Bridge:
1. Unknown maybe the 4 Rifles.
2. Crown on top of wreath with a bird inside the wreath.

I tried the link and it worked for me. The source is Clarence House instragram. Perhaps you should try it directly.

Thanks for the great closeups! I hope one or some of the family are eventually interviewed and asked about this day. It look to be very special for both the combatants and the members of the BRF. Oh to be a fly on the wall!

The Queen is lovely in cream as she arrives to see the royal steeds compete at Royal Ascot | Mail Online

Camilla pulled out her lovely pink topaz choker to wear to Ascot today. Unusually for a day event, she also wore the matching pink earrings with the choker today.
