The Greville necklace, together with the Greville Tiara [both geometric and both Diamond] make perfect sense to me...

I agree. The earrings are her "best" diamond earrings, so she does not have much choice there.

I think that is why Camilla is starting to pull out the bigger pieces again. In the first 2-3 years of her marriage, she wore a number of serious pieces, and then by late 2008, she stopped, retreating to a few favourites. More recently, she has been seen with a few interesting pieces (butterfly brooches, the ruby demi-parure, and now, the Greville collier). I hope this streak continues, and she continues to go "big" in public.
I too hope she keeps this up. I just think the Royal Women of Windsor should look the part whenever they can. Don't be afraid rock those jewels.

The Duchess has more diadems. Two weeks ago she wore her own family's heirloom (the Cubitt diadem), she has worn the diamond Delhi Durbar diadem, and the Boucheron honeycomb-motif diadem, which is her favourite.

I have read that also the Teck Crescent Diadem is at Camilla's disposal but she still has to wear it. Due to the construction of the diadem and the gaps between base and monture, it needs BIG hair, preferrably with hair-extensions, to wear it succesfully, I think.

Will Charles and Camilla not attende Commonwealth Head of State meeting this year? That would be anothe tiara Event.
I like it that she has choosen seomething different then one of her pearl chokers. They are beautiful but we see them so often the last years that i find this a welcome change.

You are right, they will be attending the CHOGM meeting, so there can be 7 tiara appearances this year.

The "problem" is that we can not judge the spectacular diadem and enormous collier from day pictures. We can be sure, that there inside at the rich bedecked table and in the flicker of massive chandeliers, the diamonds of the Duchess did their magic....

The one Duchess stunning in the Greville diadem and two colliers (one with two and one with three rows of glittering diamonds). The other Duchess witha nice diadem and -often not seen these days- long white gloves.

Picture.
Amazing jewels. The necklaces are breathtaking.

Better have some stamina to drag that lot around....I think those rival the set of ruby and diamonds Maxima had on the other day (wedding of CP and Sofia).....those are stunning and Camilla wears them well.

Much as I am very fond of the Dutch Mellerio ruby parure, to me, for sheer presence, it can't compete with the Greville colliers and tiara.

The Mellerio Ruby Parure (and the "Peacock" ruby parure) already lose it inside the Dutch collection itself from the enormous diamond-and-sapphires sets and the so-called "New Crown Parure" (with the 350 years old massive Stuart Diamond). So it is no surprise the clunky Greville necklace outpowers the Mellerio parure by sheer carat power. Esthetically, tja..., that is a point of discussion....

However it is a surprise that a "simple" Mrs Greville could bomb the most noble and most royal ladies away 'with shock and awe' with such a massive amount of diamonds. The British royal family may be very grateful for a most generous Mrs Greville!

Yes I'm not keen on the necklace on Camiila, as has been said it, appears to weigh her down with diamonds ( a nice problem). I'd like to see it worn differently rather than the exposed neckline.
