I fully agree - it would be nice to see some other tiaras on her. I still think she has the Delhi Dhurbar on loan - but also the Teck Crescent, which we have not seen on her at all.

Given that she has several neclaces with coloured stones, I am wondering which tiara she could potentially wear which is not all white:

The ruby - or something with sapphires?

She also has worn her own tiara as well which is a quite lovely piece.

The Duchess of Cornwall attended a reception for the British Asian Trust on February 4 wearing her diamond snake necklace and Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings:

I think this is a new brooch! It’s the Lucky Animals Hummingbird clip by Van Cleef & Arpels:

Was never a fan of the diamond snake necklace but the Van Cleef & Arpels Alhambra earrings are stunning.

My two cents - I am not too fond of the Alhambra collection earrings and not too fond of the serpentine necklace per se - but having them combined does not work for me at all.

Plus - I would so much love to see her everyday pearl earrings clearly and without hair over it as I couldn't make up my mind yet if the upper part is only metal and looks like something is inserted or if there are real old rose cut diamonds included.... so here my plea - one picture without hair obscuring the view.....

We are looking at two totally different styles and generations of jewellery and I think Camilla must be very preoccupied as, while she has mixed and accented her different pieces over the years, I have never seen such a clash of style before.

Each piece has its own value and I like both. The Alhambra set is very pretty and have a delicate charm all their own and Camilla wears them well but not with the snake necklace. Now the snake necklace, to me, is a step up, older and a really classic style of jewellery. Where the Alhambra earrings have an almost whimsical attraction, the snake necklace is a seriously elegant piece of a type Camilla wears with an almost nonchalant ease.

The only question I have is what on earth preoccupied her so much that she grabbed two such totally disparate pieces of jewellery to wear together. She wore that necklace with the Delhi Durbar tiara for heavens sake!

Very simple but quite elegant. Imagine the same sea of blue without that little sparkler: it are the details which make or break an outfit. I love it.

I really hope it is a pretzel and not another snake piece. Her snake jewels are rather creepy to me.

Sailors knot seems the consensus. But do like the order of the pretzel

Though some are claiming its a 'love knot' and it was a secret message to her stepsons about family unity

It is a sailors knot called an overhand knot.
It is simple and often the first step in forming other knots.
Two tied entwined together form a true lovers knot also known as a shamrock knot.

Unlikely. I think it is a new acquisition, probably worn for the first time on Christmas Day 2019.

You've got to love a husband who has an eye for beautiful jewellery and is of a mind to see it on his wife.

Camilla has long been a fan of Van Cleef & Arpels jewelry. She owns several pieces from them and this year she debuted five new brooches from their Lucky Animals collection.

They have a lot of others in this collection, and I hope Camilla has the lot. I particularly like these:

Apparently Queen Alexandra wore brooches like this one in her hair, so it is likely a royal family piece.

That gold-coloured brooch, is it an odd-looking Canadian maple leaf?
