Is that POW feathers brooch the one Diana used to wear?

We don't knwow for sure.
Some times ago it was established that there were two POW feathers brooches : One made for Queen Alexandra and a copy made for Queen Mary. Apparently the first one is now worn by Camilla, and the second one was worn by Diana on a necklace.
(or maybe the contrary).

The emerald drops look different to me, but hard to tell without good photos:

What was different? Her "everyday" pearl earrings are attached to a floral or designed base and the pearls hang about one link below. You can see a little of the base in most photographs but she still wears the same ones albeit to the Highland Games or a State Dinner.

If you zoom in on the photo from February 18 you can see that the diamond stud portion is different from Camilla’s usual everyday earrings.

Her everyday earrings have a round top portion and a smaller, creamier pearl:

I’ve actually seen her wear 4-5 different pearl earrings, but she usually wears the same pair and her hair hides them anyway.

I agree, the earrings worn to present the QE Design award are different from the everyday pair.

I am yet to be convinced. Size and colour are so variable with shots from different angles, different cameras and different light, all of which affect our perception of the colour and size. I would need a good shot of the different bases to identify any differences.

From what I can see, the top part of both earrings are quite different. But I agree, it would be good to see a better picture of the earrings for the QE2 Design Award engagement.

Today's pairing of her everyday pearl earrings and the nicer (IMO) of her diamond clasped pearl chokers will always have the Wow factor but the day belonged to the pairing of her purple crystal and diamond earrings paired with her four strand pearl choker paired with her with amethyst and diamond clasp.

The amethyst earrings are just stunning on the duchess.

I really adore her Southseas black pearls. The lustre is magical. And you can't go amiss with shamrock or horseshoe brooch.

The Turquoise Shamrock brooch is small but still pretty I had no idea was a wedding gift in 1947 from the dowager Duchess of Portland to the then Princess Elizabeth,I had thought it was a newbie!
