However, Scooter is right on the money with her query on versatility. The maginificent Aquamarine clasp is reportedly able to be detached and used as a brooch.

I have never seen the aquamarine clasp used as a brooch though.

Me neither, but much as I would love to see it, Camilla seems to be in no rush and apperars to be busily acquiring more brooches as well.

I have a question about the jewels that Camilla has received on official visits. I'm thinking, for example, of the ruby, sapphire and emerald necklaces she received during her trips to the Middle East.

Am I right in saying that these are considered personal gifts and, therefore, hers to do with as she pleases on her death? I would assume then that her children would likely inherit them in that case.

No - Since a number of years there is a regulation that Jewels given on official Visits etc. will go to the Royal Collection. Camilla has the use of it for as Dcuhess of Cornwall and later as Queen but after her death the will go the the Royal Collection. Think this would also happen in the case of a divorce but not sure.

All of which only reconfirms my view that whilst, in theory, it may be possible to interchange clasps and pearl strings for the various chokers, in practice, that is not the case.

Current regulations notwithstanding, I would be surprised if Camilla's children inherited jewels that she acquired in an official capacity. They may receive some of her personal jewels though.

Thank you, Stefan and Muriel. I'm quite relieved that these items will stay with the monarch. Camilla has an amazing private jewellery collection so I would assume much of that will go to her children (as it should).

I'd love to see someone do something with that ruby breastplate in the future. With a bit of creative thinking, it could be turned into a really amazing tiara.

I think this is a really fuzzy area because gifts are officially exchanged between the host and the guest respectively. These are usually accompanied by photos and handshakes, etc.

However, what happens when the host bestows a personal gift of jewellery as a belated wedding present, birthday, etc. We have no way of knowing what changes hands then and I am not so sure that we need to. I mean, it's kind of bad ettiquette for the giver to read the full description of their gift, and it's monetary value, on a public list.

Hmm.

Gifts presented on official events, ie a visit to Saudi Arabia - the gifts are not personal. They have the use in their lifetime and then are returned to the monarch as stated by other posts.

Wedding and birthday gifts - even from Heads of State - are personal and could be kept.

All gifts returned to the monarch following the death of the original recipient are not liable for death duties; bequests to family and friends are liable.

Camilla was wearing a turquoise brooch when she went to the funeral of the Dowager Duchess of Devonshire. Has this ben seen previously? Any thoughts as to its provenance?

It looks like a shamrock. I was also wondering if this was new as I have never seen it before.

Is the turquoise bracelet new?

I wonder if the bracelet and/or peacock brooches have any connection to her brother Mark. (photo from same day as visit to St Ronan School)

The photos are amazing but I don't remember seeing Camilla wearing the Mountbatten emeralds.

The brooches have been used on a number of occasions previously, though I am not sure of any link to Mark Shand.

I think the Mountbatten emeralds are being confused with what we know as the Saudi emerald and diamond demi-parure. Other than this Pinterest, I have never seen Camilla wear the Mountbatten emeralds, nor have I ever read anything linking Charles or Camilla to them.

Good to know, thanks Muriel. Bye the bye, I think they are so much lovelier than the Saudi set which isn't exactly chopped liver either.
