Unfortunately, that tidbit of information was not made known. I had thought the clasp had been changed since this is also a four-strand necklace as her other one. But maybe it was a gift from Charles, if this report is true.

The Keppel tiara wasn't broken up, it was and remains a versatile necklace/tiara piece (1).
However, a tiara was bought by the Prince of Wales and broken up (2); the stones were used to make the modern diamond necklace (3).

What has previously been described as the Grand Duchess Xenia of Russia brooch was first worn by the DOC in November 2009 (4).

2. The tiara bought by the POW and subsequently broken up.

4. The Grand Duchess Xenia brooch, worn in Canada, November 2009.

I don't care for the diamond daisy necklace too much and wish that lovely tiara wasn't broken up for parts. And thanks for confirming about the provenance of the cabochon sapphire brooch, Warren, and to Artemisia for identifying it correctly in the first place.

You are absolutely correct, thanks for picking up my error quickly.
Apologies, I misread my notes; post now amended.

Since it's been mentioned after I posted it incorrectly above, here it is again:

Maybe its the way it is displayed but that tiara looks very bridal shop.

Now that is a gorgeous diamond necklace, so I guess the tiara was well sacrificed. Maybe Charles saw the potential of the stones to be used for other pieces since the tiara might be considered too lightweight for Camilla's mighty hair. It also looked more suitable for a younger royal lady.

Agreed! Charles has a good eye if he indeed saw the potential for a gorgeous necklace. The tiara in it's original form would have suited Catherine... The Duchess has some incredible jewels to choose from.

Are you sure the modern diamond necklace referred to in 3 above was used by Camilla prior to her wedding to Charles? AFAIK, its first public debut was in the US in late 2005 on their first royal trip together

Apparently, this picture of Camilla wearing the same (or similar) necklace was taken back in 1990's.
You'll learn more if you read these posts by Warren (post 1, post 2) and by joye. (post)

Thank you for the link to the previous discussion on the necklace.

At the time it was suggested (and it remains my belief) that the photo is not from the 1990s but from the group of photos taken at the time of C&C's first wedding anniversary. A number of pictures were taken then, including one of Camilla in a white column dress and the turquoise parure last seen in Oslo; another one of her in jeans and a blazer on a bench in the garden of CH and this one.

The necklace was a gift to the then Mrs. Parker-Bowels from the Prince of Wales prior to their marriage.
In the late 1990s the Prince acquired a rather nondescript tiara, and the stones were reset into this necklace and matching earrings.
The above post was made some time ago; unfortunately the RJOTWMB does not preserve its posted content indefinitely (like we do here! ) but we have the quote from an "expert" in the field. None of us know the date when Camilla acquired the necklace; we pick up information along the way, file it away for reference, and hope that most of it at least is fairly accurate. There may have been good reason for Camilla's reticence to wear this jewel publicly prior to 2005 (apart from a photo shoot), but that gets into the realm of the purely speculative and we simply don't know.

The image I posted of the tiara which is said to have been broken up to make the necklace came from the same source at the RJOTWMB. From my recollection it was generally accepted at the time so I would like to believe the information is accurate, with the caveat that the subject of Royal Jewels relies very much on the knowledge of a very few people and even the Royal website has at times been contradictory or in error.

Very informative and well argued post from Warren, as usual .

The reason I persist with my theory of the 1st anniversary photoshoot is that the Camilla's hairstyle is very similar to the other pictures of the time. From memory, some of the pictures at the time were criticised for being quite heavily photoshopped.

Looks like the necklace Camilla is wearing tonight is either the modern diamond tiara she wore in Spain (she's also wearing the same Bruce oldfield dress she wore then) but i'm not sure if its the necklace that Sophie Wessex wore to the Swedish royal wedding, can't tell from a distance :S

I think she is wearing this modern diamond necklace.
Edit: We have better pictures now and it's definitely the modern diamond necklace.

A gorgeous, delicate necklace and stunning earrings to match. I believe a tiara purchased by Charles was broken down for the diamonds in the necklace.

Could anyone identify the brooch Camilla wore for a reception at British Embassy in Stockholm?
