Duchess of Cornwall Jewellery 6: January 2008-September 2011
 
Charles bought Camilla a tiara of synthetic rubies and diamonds set in platinum that the King had bought for Alice Keppel. There are also some other pieces that Charles has given Camilla--and Camilla has worn the piece as a necklace. If you go to Magnolia's site, it is the fourth tiara down---
Cornwall

I guess the tiara worn by Camilla on her first marriage and the one that her daughter wore to her own wedding is passed down from mother to daughter in that family.
Does anyone know how long it's been in the family????
It is a very beautiful tiara i think. It looked great on Laura on her wedding day.
Maybe the Duchess of Cornwall should wear it more often or has it now been given to Laura???

Camilla has a lovely collection of brooches, but most of them see to have coloured stones. I am not sure if I have seen any with just diamonds - wonder why? Has anybody seen her with any?

I don't know why ... There's this brooch with, I think, just diamonds on it :

TheTruth--that's probably my favorite picture of Camilla--I always enjoy seeing it. I think she looks fantastic here!

You're welcome!
Here are others with all diamonds

This one is a bit blurry, but it seems like a twin diamond-brooch

Thanks Andrew. They are lovely. I do recall Camilla has worn the twin diamond brooch on other occassions as well, including at her first Ascot as DoC. I have not seen the brooch on the 1st of the 3 pictures you have posted been worn pther than when she wore it to one of her first visits to the Middle East as DoC.

I am not sure the brooch on the 2nd of the 3 pictures you posted is diamonds

The Queen Mother had a lot of all diamond brooches, so some may appear on the Duchess in the future !
Would love to see this!

ANything that Camilla wears is ok with me. Her history of dignity can carry anything off, bless her!
You lot on this forum leave me gob-smacked with your knowledge. I am obsessed with royal jewels, and so have spent all my time reading and droolin, and therefore not posting! Thanks everyone for all your Wonderful photos and links, they have given me so much pleasure. (I am a computer idiot, and do not know how to post linx and pix, so thankyou all.)

Could this bracelet be Queen Alexandra's bracelet?

Oh...you had me excited for a second thinking that some of the Rundell parure had finally resurfaced. :-)

jcbcode99 03-06-2008 09:01 AM

One, that Rundell Tiara is stunning--it really should resurface.

Two--the bracelet's look to be the same -- Andrew, I am in awe of your skills! I would never have noticed such a thing. That was a treat!

BTW, I love the photo of Camilla Andrew posted--in the cream jacket with the sage/mint skirt--she looks wonderful--and wearing the PoW brooch with emerald drop and the emerald drop earrings! Those three pieces just make me drool. I would love to see the Vladimir emerald drop tiara accompany these stones. What a beautiful sight they would be!

It is such a shame(or mystery) that the Queen Mum did not wear the Rundell tiara, especially as she has worn the necklace from the parure some 2 billion times!
The Queen should let her daughter and daughters-in-law into that vault and have them search through those boxes! Of course everything would be on loan!
I bet that Princess Marie Christine(Michael) would take full advantage of the occasion, she seems to enjoy her jewellery!

Lady Marmalade 03-06-2008 03:56 PM

HM has some of the most beautiful emerald jewels. Camilla could wear that tiara with the existing emerald jewels she has now.
