Love to see her burst out the Delhi durbar tiara once in a while, even if she only keeps it for State Openings at the like.

It is n ot only for the State Opening but for the last State visits and Diplomatic receptions she has always worn the same tiara and choker combination. Mut be several years back she worn a different necklace with the honeycomb tiara.

I would love to see her wearing some colour again and she has a gorgeous diamond demi-parure not to mention her stunning turquoise demi-parure. And that's not even including her royal gifts or those from HM's famed vaults.

That;s right, it would be great to see her wear some of the jewellery she wore early on in her royal life: the Cambridge emerald earrings, the Welsh leek brooch, the citrine and diamond brooch amongst others. How about the collet collier again, unseen for about a decade?

Is there any information about the provenance of this brooch that Camilla wore in New Zealand?

The link to your photo doesn’t work for me.
But, as far as I know, she has only worn these brooches:

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Queen Mother’s Rock Crystal Brooch

From Her Majesty's Jewel Vault: The Duchess of Cornwall's Sapphire and Diamond Dragonfly Clips

Her 3 white Bruce Oldfield-dresses that she has worn so far for State openings are likely tailor made to match her 4 and 5-strand pearl chokers and the Greville Tiara. We don’t really know if she have access to more tiaras than that one (and ofcourse her family tiara). The Delhi Durbar may have been a one time loan as it hasn’t been worn for 14 years.

When Charles is King, the Dragon guarded jewel vault beneath Buckingham Palace will be all open for her.

Yes, this is the rock crystal brooch. The body of the brooch is transparent, so it looks different depending on the fabric itís worn on.

I love the brooch which I am unfamiliar with. Can someone provide some background details please?
Really disappointed with the diplomatic reception ensemble. Similar to the State Opening of Parliament, this occasion seems to herald a uniform of jewels and dress.

I assume you mean the chelengk brooch?
It was inspired by Lord Nelsonís hat ornament which he received from Turkey.

I'd like to see The Duchess of Cornwall wearing another tiara other than the Greville tiara every once in a while,its HRH's signature one but it would be nice to a change every once in awile.

Thank you, I had no idea about the original piece. I also discovered that in 2018, the Queen was made a gift of a replica brooch similar to the one that the Duchess has and listed in the required declaration of gifts to individual members of the Royal Family.

Interesting. It looks like a diamond pretzel.
