I don't think it's beautiful, but I agree some of the stones could be reset.

I quite like the demi-parure, but it is quite insignificant compared to the gorgeous baubles the Duchess already has in her treasure chest.

Indeed. It is not that the Prince of Wales has to buy every little hiccup once associated with his or her ancestors...

Queen Camilla, the information on the Tiara reset as necklace [second on the left in this photo] comes from 'the Royal Order of Sartorial Splendour', which is fairly reputable, I believe.. I can find no photograph of the Tiara in its original form.

Well I understood that this was the trend in this thread: items apparently once worn by Camilla's ancestor should be bought for her?

No, have to say I have not read any instructions to The Prince of Wales to buy everything. I think it is lovely myself, although it might be a bit much for the office.

Here's the info from The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendour. No Alice...

She also has a necklace reportedly made from a dismantled tiara bought by her husband (second from left).

You're right, but the statement always makes any discussion of Camilla's jewels sort of salacious. Not only does it not mention Alice, can anyone actually identify any of Camilla's jewels from Charles as having belonged to Alice?

He has lavished tens of thousands of pounds on this nostalgic search, and both he and Camilla - who keeps a portrait of Mrs Keppel at her Wiltshire home, Ray Mill House - have drawn much intimate pleasure from the collection. To the delight of the Prince, she wears the pieces on special private occasions."
And Richie and Geoffy would know of course . . . they have such impeccable sources.

Nice and different necklace. I have a question. This is gift for the Duchess of Cornwall. This is a personal gift mean that keeps the duchess and inherits or where he belongs to the royal family? Generally the case for all the gifts that are given to such visits?

Read all about it here.

Read down to OFFICIAL gifts and PERSONAL GIFTS. This would not qualify as a personal gift. So, it can be held/used in ways listed in the OFFICIAL gifts explanation.

Thank you so much. I believe me too that this necklace must be Official gift.

No, I don't know much about her chokers. There is one with a pink stone (topaz?), one with aquamarine in a gold setting, one with sapphire (?), this one, and maybe more. But it is certainly a style of jewel that the Duchess very much likes to wear.
