Pink Sapphire or Topaz it is an absolutely exquisite piece !!

Is this the Queen Mother's triple strand with (significant) diamond clasp?

Yes it is. Camilla used these strings extensively from early 2006 till about 2009 or 2010, when she got another plain diamond choker, and I think she upgraded her single string of pearls. Since then, she has used these strings less often.

The mighty Boucheron and the usual diamond earrings were out again in Colombo for the CHOGM dinner.

Stunning tiara on the Duchess of Cornwall and it really suits HRH!

She wears it well. The gown complements the jewels well.

All hail the Mighty Bouch - the grandest of the "go big or go home" tiaras. It looks great on her and she looks really comfortable wearing it, too.

She wears it well. It is flattering, not overwhelming (considering its size!) and IMO suits her. I can see why it seems to be her go-to tiara! Lovely pictures.

Because she doesn't have another one, except the more modest family tiara, that she brought with her.

Well not exactly. She already wore once the Delhi Durbar tiara, loaned by the Queen in 2005. We can suppose that it's still at her disposal.
Secondly the book "the Queen's Diamonds" taught us that another tiara, the Teck crescent, is at her disposal too.
We can imagine that the Mighty Bouch is her favourite for various reasons (style, weight ...).
So Camilla has basically access to at least 4 tiaras (including, indeed, the Shand Tiara).

When did she get the Teck Crescent? That was being speculated as the tiara for Kate before the wedding.

According to this book :

The Queen's Diamonds | Royal Collection Trust

As for the speculated tiara for kate, i didn't know that the Teck crescent was a candidate. I remember some talks about the Strathmore Rose tiara though.

She's worn the Teck Crescent before but it was a while ago. You can see it here:
The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Flashback Friday: A Few of Camilla's Sparkliest Things

I don't quite care for it on her, it's either the way she is wearing it or it's just too small for her head/hair.


Does anyone have a new picture of Camilla wearing the Shand Tiara after her marriage to Charles?

Camilla is wearing the Cubitt Shand tiara in the third photo of the link which is definitely too small and gets lost in her hair. This is a better view of her daughter wearing the tiara on her wedding day.

We have yet to see Camilla wear the Teck Tiara.

I, believe, the Delhi Durbar, was a short time loan, never to be seen, again. The Teck Crescent is also being questioned by others. She received the Boucheron, as it is a Charles', inheritance, to which he will never pay tax, as his mother has received as a Sovereign to Sovereign exchange, to avoid paying taxes. A great scam. Camilla wears the only engagement ring that is on loan, to avoid taxes.

Good call.

OK, now I know we've been through this before but one more time, just for you . . . we don't know anything about the Dehli Durbar, have only a hint about the Teck Crescent and reasonably deduce that the Bucheron is a life time gift.

Fact: All, repeat all, of HMQM's jewellery was left to her daughter Queen Elizabeth. It was not and never has been Charle's inheritance! That HM has gifted Camilla the use of the Bucheron is no more surprising than her gifting Catherine the use of the Halo Scroll.

That HM gave her mother's ring to Charles is as obvious as his giving it to Camilla as an engagement ring. Where on earth did you get the idea that it is only a loan? Worse than that, that Camilla only wears it as tax avoidance?

What man "loans" his wife her engagement ring? I don't know what it's like where you come from but where I come from handing down family jewellery such as my Grandmother's ring, and my Mother then gifting the same ring to one of her daughters is a perfectly natural occurance. Nothing wierd, strange, evil or illegal.

What is both weird and strange is your continual venting about the supposed great scam and that Charles is some sort of diabolically Machiavellian tax cheat.

I think the crescent tiara will be lost in her hair unless she miraculously styles it differently. I don't see that happening. She doesn't vary her hairstyle one iota.
