All I can say is-
Never seen the earrings before. Love them.
I think Camilla wins best-dressed for me today- simply because of the rocks!
Though I do love HM and COW outfits.

When u look at it close up. It is truly an amazing piece of jewelry. Its just not great on her. I like the Duchess in older styles.

Correct me if I am wrong here roseroyal, I looked at all those photos, and she looked like she was in a very pale mint green or something. She looked so fabulous, and that brooch was something I have not seen before. Maybe it was the lighting, but it just did not look cream to me.

Now Camilla on the other hand, that was cream, and very beautiful with that brooch.

I thought it more of a pewter/silver. But QEII looked divine.

Oh, it is so good to see again those matching earrings to my favorite pearl choker. I've only seen Camilla wear them twice and feel she should wear them all the time with the necklace. They're absolutely beautiful and complement the pink stone so well.

^ I agree. Also it requires a very low decolletage to accomodate it, which is not the best look after a certain age.

Personally, I would be surprised if we saw the ruby necklace worn again in its current form. Camilla does not seem to use her jewels very much these days, so I really don't think she will bother reworking the rubies.

Cam is probably the only person in the BRF who can wear it, as is. I wouldn't imagine reworking until it becomes available to someone else. I think it is beautiful as it is.

I like the piece in and of itself. Closeups show that it really is a true work of art. As to whether Camilla will wear it again or even as to whether it is redesigned, is, unfortunately, as ever, darn I hate this, something only time will tell.

Together with Queen Máxima of the Netherlands and her mother-in-law Queen Elizabeth II, the Duchess of Cornwall is amongst the best wearers of jewels. From these three ladies one gets the impression they choose their jewels with care and wear these with great pleasure.

Looks like she's had her teeth bleached as well. They used to be quite yellow from the smoking, though nothing like Margarethe's.

Oh how very lovely it is. I love what seems to be an Art Deco clasp and would love to get a really large photo to give it the once over.

However, that photo is enough to stir a very undignified case of severe "Pearl Envy". I look forward to any background info our resident jewel ferrets can unearth.

Thanks Sepheno, that is a beautiful shot of a really beautiful clasp. Muriel, I agree it is difficult to tell what the stones are. I look forward to finding out.

Absolutely. It is nice to see art-deco jewellery make a comeback in recent years.
