I'm sorry. I think I replied to the wrong post - will be more careful next time, and less impulsive.

We all know that C's aquamarine choker came from her grandmother Annabel but...I have a question and maybe it's already been answered but, where did Camilla's pink amethyst choker come from? Was it a gift? Or was it part of the Queen Mother's jewels that were given to Charles?

The origins of the pink choker have never been confirmed. It made its debut appearance in 2008 at the wedding of Peter and Autumn Phillips.

Some have suggested that it was acquired by Charles or QEQM at auction in 2000, but was certainly not used till 2008. There has also been some commentary that it was originally a brooch and Charles or Camilla converted it into a choker.

I absolutely love that pink amethyst choker; that's my favorite of all her chokers.

Ah thank you! I think it's very pretty too, one of her best. I think it would be lovely as a brooch too.

A lot of times a piece like that can be worn several ways to make it more versatile. Usually a brooch can also be worn as a pendant or pearl enhancer. Though this particular stone (which I think is a padparadscha sapphire not an amethyst) would be far to large to wear that way.

Quite right. That would make an amazing pendant with a serious collet necklace.
