Here's the older ruby and diamond necklace with oval shaped rubies rather than the pear shaped of the

I thought it was a reworked version at first as well but as you say, the shape is different. Probably new. Charles was in the middle east recently, you know :P

Usually I'd agree with you as I'm very much a "less is more" kind of person but somehow, this look all pulls together for me. Kind of reminiscent of the days gone by when galas and premieres were times of bringing out the very best one has and dressing to the "nines".

Camilla is a person that can pull off wearing the serious bling and the larger tiaras and I like seeing her in them.

I would really like to know the story behind this necklace. Old ? Or new? I'm not feeling the love for it at all

The necklace is nice, but I just don't think Camilla carries off necklaces like that very well. I think she looks better in single strands rather than multiple rows.

Camilla really don't pull off large necklaces like that, IMO. I think she looks good in single rows of diamonds, etc.

The rubies are lovely but I do not like this necklace on Camilla. The length is too long and takes the eye too far down to her cleavage which IMO should be covered up way more. If it were only one strand if say fine, but this necklace is too long.

She needs the large necklaces etc to cover the wrinkles around her neck. Otherwise she needs to wear dresses that cover that area.


She wears the large necklaces quite well.

IMO that is not what is expected, or required from the spouse of the Heir to the Throne, at a CELEBRATORY Gala occasion...

The Duchess looks terrific, and like other guests she 'dressed to the nines'...

To me the design of the necklace is a clear reference, and tribute to India.. the setting for the film premiered tonight..

I wonder if its an old jewel from the days of the Raj, hauled out of the BP vaults and dusted off for the occasion ?

As jewellery enthusiasts we should be applauding the appearance of such a parure of rubies; necklace, fabulous earrings and bracelet.

IMO it is way over the top.
Doesn't suit her age brings up the old line of mutton etc
Although to be truthful I wouldn't like it on anyone
It's not elegant which is what I would expect from the wife of the heir.
But as always MO

It's a matter of personnal taste, i don't think these "big guns" suit her very well, like the other infamous ruby necklace and the Greenvile diamond one.

You could be right, it definitely has an Indian feel about it. I really don't mind Camilla wearing this sort of necklace, I'd rather it were worn than hidden away never to be seen.

Now that's true, we should applaud Camilla for even bringing these jewels, because the British royals usually look scared to wear jewels. I just don't think a necklace with several strands suits Camilla.

Dont know if it's true, but I read on another site that it's a re set of the infamous ruby breastplate. If so, I much prefer this iteration. The dress a great color on her.

It's not. The shape of the rubies is very different and they can't be reshaped to these rubies because they are to large to have been remade from the old ones.

A couple of posts containing personal attacks have been deleted as they were disruptive to the conversation.
