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

She also wore this gold brooch recently, which is new to me:

I am a brooch fan. I love unusual/new ones. And I love these animal ones.

There are 14 brooches in the collection. I'd love to see a few others on her.

Fox and turtle are my favorites.

I cannot claim to be a fan of brooches from the Lucky Animal collection, I think Camilla has much nicer brooches in her collection, and I would like to see her use those more.

I think it is an oak leaf, like the real ones she has pined. This was a video message to Chelsea Pensioners for Royal Oak Day (Oak Apple Day) I believe.

I would like to see it getting lots of love especially in winter when everything is dank and dreary. I'd defy anyone to stay downhearted withat gorgeous, fiery beauty in their view. It is glorious and deserves a better fate than the dark inside of a jewelry box in a safe!

Luckily Camilla can wear the big chunky pieces well. Meaning they suit her. A bit like how Queen Maxima can wear the big pieces well also.

I think it would work well just as well on either a dark dress (black, navy or even dark green) as it will on a taupe or creme coloured one. It could be used a brooch, just as Camilla did in 2007, or as a devant de corsage.

The Topaz and Diamond brooch is stunning was it confirmed it was once owned by the late queen mother.

I have never seen any information as to its provenance.

Yes indeed! I hope she gives it an airing this year.

I've said before I have a large piece of amber set in a silver brooch that's similar to this but these days I don't have enough occasions to wear it.

I think a trip to Waitrose might justify an amber brooch, don't you?

I'm shielding (mostly) as I care for my elderly Mum so I'm not going into shops but I'd consider wearing it when their delivery van arrives (next due on Sunday).

Once a week outing for the brooch, done!

They come once a fortnight but I'm definitely warming to the idea (would have to change out of the gardening togs I seem to be living in & find something decent to pin it on).

I'm sure Camilla used to have a similar problem because she lived in gardening / riding clothes but she can go from that to looking regal, which I suspect is a lot harder than it looks. She has a fabulous jewel collection now but she never looks overwhelmed by them, which a lot of people would be.

I looked up my files on the large piece Camilla wore. Many years ago possibly around 2007 Majesty magazine wrote that the central piece is Amber surroundered by diamonds and belonged to the Queen Mother.
It is possible that Royal jewels of the World Message Board has also written a provenance on the piece. Just type in RJWMB and that will get you to this excellent site.
It is not topaz.

Thank you. Unfortunately, RJWMB no longer has its old archives online.

The Order of Sartorial Splendour identifies the brooch as being Diamond and Citrine which to me sounds pretty right.

Since the outrageously gorgeous Aquamarine Pearl Choker is described as a family piece, it's certainly possible that both of these pieces have from an earlier time and while stunning, are not in the same value area as those in HM's private jewel collection.

It is being reported on Twitter that the new necklace worn yesterday by Camilla in Cornwall appears to be this blue topaz Apollo pendant from @kikimcdonough
