I've never seen that brooch before (which does not mean it hasn't been worn before). It might be from Camilla's family. Surely her people had some jewelry. Looks to be Georgian.

I don't know which one it is, but it looks like an art deco design to me. The pearl choker she's wearing is also one of her earlier ones with the rows of diamonds and a central one in the clasp.

It is lovely. Is it onyx or sapphire or some other stone? Anyone know?

The dark part could be enamel.

The Enamel brooch seems familiar to me, does anyone know it's history?

I am particularly taken by the Turqoise necklace Camilla sported in Oslo (a supposed Keppel heirloom I've read?). It suits her very nicely and the stones appear of exceptional quality.

The composition of the earrings aren't as attractive, but it's nice that the Duchess is in possession of the intact suite.

The choker looks lovely, and certainly IMO, has no tbeen seen on Camilla previously. There are some pretty serious diamonds on this one!

I'd never seen this particular choker before the Scandinavia visit either.
Camilla has worn some spectacular chokers lately though, including the diamond choker for the War Horse: Fact and Fiction exhibition at the National Army Museum on 19 October 2011, and the gorgeous choker she wore for Zara's wedding on 30 July 2011.

Cropped from much lager pictures and constitute less than 20% of the original.

The center choker with the pink stone - amethyst/topaz? - has always been my favorite. She wore it once with a pair of matching earrings and the set was absolutely gorgeous. I think the last choker is new since this is the first time she's worn it to Denmark.

Thanks for the photos, Artemisia.

I hope no-one takes offence when I say that I dislike chokers as a rule and see them as an older woman's piece of jewellery. I can admire the constituent parts, but I wouldn't wear one myself.

I dislike chokers too, especially on young women. But DoC wears them perfectly, my favorite is this one with pink topaz.

That necklace is a beauty; I wonder if she has matching earrings. Thanks for posting, dbarn!

I love the square emeralds, just such a chic modern cut but still impressive.

She has beatiful jewelry. She doesn't bring much to the table for them.
