I was referring to the Queen Mother's jewels that Camilla currently uses. Her engagement ring was an anniversary gift to The Queen Mother from George VI and was given to Charles by his mother.

I would like Camilla to only wear her family jewelry (Those received/inherited from her family or APB/'s.) to her own family functions.

To wear jewelry (gifts) received from Charles or his family at his families functions. (Ascot, Trooping the Colour, RF weddings, RF christenings, etc.)

To wear loaned jewelry from the Queen or RF at Royal functions (banquets, charities (except those she had prior to her marriage), royal engagements both foreign and local etc.

That will help us determine which jewels are her for keeps, who gave her wihich and which ones she only has on loan.

Why should she risk losing one of her personal jewelry while during her royal duties? Royal duties should equal royal jewelry.

I don't mean big pieces, but RF brooches/pins, necklaces, earrings.

What! And have us miss out on all the times she tantalizes us with her formidable collection of pearl chokers and single stings? Not to mention her signature pearl earrings which she invariably wears almost everywhere.

I don't know about you, but I would go into severe pearl withdrawals . . .

My own view is that these are all various facets of Camilla as we see her today (Shand / Cubbitt descendant, former wife of APB, wife of the PoW, the Duchess of Cornwall, the next queen of the UK and the realms). Whilst the source of the various items of jewellery are probably recorded clearly, in her mind, I presume, it is all her pot of jewellery, and she wears what she considers what is most appropriate for the occassion, or simply, whatever tickles her fancy!

Here's to her continuing to have her fancy tickled often, every time we see her for example . . . and hope that she starts to recycle her chokers as she seems to have latched onto her latest and got stuck in the groove. More Camilla! We love all your pearls and you wear them so very well.

I'm the original Pearl Girl and go into spasms of delight when she wear her chokers, especially that scrumptious 5-strander with the huge pink topaz gem. I'll never tire of seeing them. I love when she wears her personal pieces, and because she does wear them so often she seems to find them comfortable as her go-to jewels. Just keep them coming, please.

Camilla's Van Cleef & Arpels earrings were out again last night at a reception at Clarence House. The matching necklace made its debut in NZ last year, and the earrings have been used last winter as well.

Does anybody recognise the earrings and pendant Camilla was wearing at the concert for the Coronation celebration at BP last night?

I, too, go into spasms of delight when Camilla pulls out the multi-strand pearl necklaces!I adore the one with the huge diamond clasp, but love the pink one (especially when she wears the matching earrings with it--talk about breathless!). I sincerely wish, though, that she would wear another tiara. In "The Queen's Diamonds" it states that the Teck Crescent has been loaned to her for some time--it would certainly be nice to see that again after so many decades away :(

A suite of jewels she has probably not worn since the 1960s. Diamonds, rubies and gold.

Consisting of:
A flower brooch or possibly two separate flower brooches.
Earrings
Necklace
Watch

Would be nice if she brought these out and whatever else she has in her jewelry box.

That's a lovely photo of Camilla in her younger days and it would be great to see that suite worn again today.

Seriously? Did someone object to the other post or was it deleted or did it start a fight? Sometimes I don't know what to think.

Man Booker Prize awarded to Eleanor Catton for novel The Luminaries | Mail Online

Camilla wore her Van Cleef and Arpels earrings last night to the Man Boooker Prize awards. She has used then 3-4 times now in the last year, since they made their debut in NZ last year.

I really don't understand this statement. I was just commenting on the picture I had referred to only.

I've always liked Camilla's butterfly brooches, they're very pretty and delicate.
