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!
