I adore that picture - love-love-love the color of Camilla's outfit. What is it - blush pink? Gorgeous. I am partial to a very pale color palette - and this along with her stupendous hat - is wonderful. The hat is a bit too big for my taste but she wears it well and the color goes perfectly with her outfit. Beautifully soft impression - very elegant.

And exactly where would you wear the hat?

I'd probably hang it on a wall. Some of these hats are really works of art (of a kind) - but not sure I'd walk around in them.

Camilla's best hats are the ones with the feathers a la a French Muskateer, or Louis the Sun King. I love those hats. Wish she'd wear more of them - very elegant in my book. Her signature style. Makes anything she wears look very cool.

Do you mean these earrings? I love them, but I've never seen them worn with that choker. Will look for that picture - the combination should have been spectacular!

That aquamarine chocker is gorgeous. Her hat is not shabby either .

Well, that hat would certainly impel me to go to church services where I could sport that type of millinery or have tea parties where I could use my vast teapot collection and wear suitable attire. But this is the type of topper that sends me into fits of ecstasy since she wears this style with such flair; all she needs is the cape and epee to accompany it!

Trust you to unearth the goods! Thank you, and unless I'm delusional, I thought I saw them worn with the choker at one time. It's nice to see them again and I don't know why she doesn't pair them together more often.

These are not the earrings which match the pink topaz choker - they are pendant earrings - those pictured here are the amethyst earrings.

I realise these are pendant earrings, but I thought the stones were topaz, not amethyst (must be the lightening).
Could you post pictures of the topaz earrings you mean? As far as I know, the topaz choker (the centrepiece, at least) was bought on its own, not together with any other pieces.

Maybe the earrings and choker aren't a matching set, but as I mentioned I saw a pair of pink/amethysts worn together with that choker at one time and never again. I hope we can find that picture eventually.

I'd love to see Camilla wearing them together!
They should look really nice together; wish I had that picture.

I swear, either the Duchess of Cornwall, or someone at the Clarence House is reading these boards.
Today, the Duchess of Cornwall wore both the choker and the hat for the Garter ceremony!

I believe it is an aquamarine and a family heirloom. I think it's origin comes from her great grandmother Alice Kepple who was King Edward VII's mistress.

Camilla first wore the pink topaz choker on the wedding of Peter and Autumn. Other events it was subsequently worn at included Charles 60th celebrations at BP, Ascot one year (with the same creme and pink ensemble as today), the Trooping one year (again with the same creme and pink ensemble as today) and at Zara & Mike's wedding. I cannot remember on which of the occassions she wore the topaz earrings, but have a look at the pictures.

I've been through so many pictures trying to find the one where she wore those matching earrings, but haven't been at all successful. Yet I know I saw it and websites have confirmed there are matching earrings as well. I think this pink choker is the grande dame of all the ones she owns, and I'm happy that Camilla was so thoughtful to give us another outing of it after the recent discussion here. Now if she'd only oblige us by wearing those matching earrings!

Cyber hug to you, Nico, for digging that up! What a shame the rain-spotted window obscures the image, but those just might be it.

Is it a different choker each time - or simply a different stone enhancer each time? I have noticed there is usually a three stand pearl set that the large stone surrounded by diamonds connects to. But does anyone know if these are enhancers or if the entire necklace is different each time?
