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.

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.

countess felicitas 02-07-2020 02:09 PM

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. :ermm:

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.....

MARG 02-13-2020 05:32 AM

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!

A very beautiful and regal collection of amethysts.

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.

SLV 03-09-2020 11:29 PM

I think it is a sailers knot.

Countessmeout 03-10-2020 12:19 AM

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

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

King of the Jungle 03-10-2020 12:34 AM

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.

MARG 03-13-2020 11:24 AM

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.

Princess Larisa 06-21-2020 03:42 PM

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.

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

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.

Camilla also has a Van Cleef & Arpels Ballerina brooch.

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!

Tarlita 06-24-2020 06:40 AM

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.

An Ard Ri 06-24-2020 08:16 AM

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

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? :flowers:

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). :lol:

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.

Tarlita 06-25-2020 06:24 PM

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.

MARG 06-26-2020 08:22 AM

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.

muriel 07-21-2020 08:27 AM

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

MARG 09-16-2020 05:48 AM

And whi6she is wearing hanging pearls, they are NOT her everyday pair. It is relatively rare that she wears something else, especially during the day. I can't believe I missed it.
