These pieces certainly have a Middle Eastern flair. Personally, they are not my style at all--too much gold.
But, I would love to see HRH The Duchess of Cornwall wearing the Greville emeralds--with a tiara besides the Boucheron. That is getting quite boring.

I found a wonderful, albeit b&w, close-up of the v-shaped diamond and ruby necklace. Its such a beautiful piece of jewelry, I hope we get to see it on Kate one day soon.

ps, it takes a few seconds to upload, comes up after the black cat.

I've just got The Queen's Jewels by Leslie Fields and am loving it. I saw in the book that the necklace also has matching earrings but I do not think they have ever been worn.

I wonder if anyone else, having seen photos of the Honeycomb in it's original classic setting, prefers it to the overly titivated Mighty Bouche that we see today?

The Royal Order of Sartorial Splendor: Tiara Thursday: The Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara

I have to admit, I would love to see Camilla wearing it in it's original incarnation, with it's almost Russian lines, along with the fabulous three string diamond necklace.

The original looks almost like a kokoshnik and it's beautiful; but I think I prefer the modified version.

Ths tiara is gorgeous and IMHO, perfect for Camilla. I do like the original the best though.

Both styles of the Bouche are beautiful, but I think I like the remodelled version better with the diamond motifs breaking up the solidness of the tiara. It looks wonderful on Camilla and she can certainly carry this mighty tiara nestled in her hair, but I have to admit that I love the Queen Mother primping at her mirror wearing it.

Agree with most of you, I like the revised version better on the tiara, it fit the Queen mum better, and I like the height on Camilla too.........

Surfing the net, I've just found a photo of the Queen Mother wearing TWO Greville ruby brooches. I've always thought there was only ONE of that kind!

Now, that's news to me too.
The brooch is wonderful but I always thought it was one of a kind too, and not one of a pair.

The enormous sapphire and diamond brooch The Queen Mother gave to Princess Diana as a wedding present is from the Greville bequest. I have also heard the Kunzite and Diamond centerpiece in Camilla's pearl choker is also from the Greville collection of jewels.

Wow that's amazing about there being a pair of Mrs Ronnie Greville's ruby brooches. Perhaps HM could loan one of them to Kate to wear to an important do. Or to Sophie perhaps. They are a lovely pair of brooches when photographed in the right light.

I agree, I think Camilla & Catherine would look great in The Queen Mother's Jewels. I was wondering what happened to the brooch that The Queen Mother gave Diana as a wedding present. I haven't seen it since then.

Hopefully, we'll see it again on Catherine soon!

Thank you very much Spheno. I didn't know it's a pair because I've not bought Angela Kelly's book yet.
