When Charles and Camilla visited Saudi Arabia in March 2006 Prince Talal Al-Waleed presented Camilla with three demi-parures: one diamond & emerald, one diamond & sapphire and one diamond & ruby. The picture shows the debut ruby appearance in January 2007 (the sapphires first appeared in November 2006 and we had to wait until June 2009 to see the emeralds).

That is one massive, imposing piece. I envision an overall redesign of that necklace: removing the dangling bits and converting them to earrings, pendants and bracelets while leaving the collar section as the necklace. Or modifying the dangling section as another necklace convertible to a tiara. But that's just my taste.

Hm - I think it is the piece I like least on Camilla.
I mean - if anybody can show off the big pieces than HRH - but this seems somehow too big - even for her.

The French tiara seems like you could take that entire top row off and still have a stunning tiara. The French sure know how to create some beauty with gems.

Same with the stars tiara. Take all the stars off and use them for hair ornaments and you still have that beautiful and delicate base.

But for my taste, it is going to be the Desiree tiara that CP Mary wears. That whole set is magnificent on her.

I love all of these rings expect Marie's. Margaret, Maxima, Sarah, and the ring from the Danish parure are stunning. The latter ring is simply divine.

Sofia's my fave, smaller stones in consistant pattern,not OTT. I also like Mary's. Not big on pearls and the British are too much for me.
