Euh... I had to read it twice, I thought my eyes were fooling me... if there are royal ladies around who are fond on wearing jewels and showing glitz und glam und gloria, then the Duchess of Cornwall surely is amongst them...

Even for the most simple engagement, the Duchess makes sure she has a pearl collier (and she has a lot) with matching clasp, a brooch and earrings. We can not say that from many (young) royal ladies these days...

She may wear her pearl chokers and necklaces for day wear, but that to me is a generational issue. Ladies of her generation wear pearls on a daily basis, the younger ones don't. When it comes to upping the ante from pearls, IMO, Camilla is hesitant, and only does the least that is required.

No generational issue to wear day jewels, see Queen Máxima this morning...

Not really. How many royal ladies of Maxima / Catherine's generation do you see wearing pearls on a daily basis.

The same as in Chinatown London and the State Dinner!

Don't get me wrong, they look magnificent with this ensemble, but . . .

It is, it does and I like it too. It really does make you believe that Charles really does have "his people" keeping their eyes on antique jewellery auctions and discreet sales.

I think all the pearls, chokers and the clasps probably were inherited from or received from her family. Her sister wears earrings similar to the round clasp.

Her brother worked for decades buying and selling antiques and jewelry with Harry Fane and on his own.

Her brother worked at Sotheby's in the early 70s.

The Wynham family are very close to Camilla's family.

Henry Wyndham was Mark Shand's best friend. Henry's sister Elizabeth has been Camilla's best friend since they were very young children.

Henry worked at both Sotheby's and Christie's.

There were a few pieces that Camilla had prior to her marriage to Charles (the aqua choker, the dark purple amethyst choker), but most of the chokers (the two diamond chokers, the large pink choker, the sapphire choker) have been acquired gradually in the 10 years since their wedding.

Lovely brooch. Has this been seen earlier? I presume this is not the pair of daisy brooches she has.

The brooch worn on the 19th does not appear to be the same as her white and gold flower brooches.

The one from the 19th, has 4 distinct petals with the bottom one detached.

I disagree, I think it is the same brooch. The differences you highlight, IMO, are not apparent because of the pictures being taken from different angles.
