The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are currently in Oman, on the first day of a multi-country tour of the Middle East. We'll cover the daytime events from today on Monday, but the jewelry from tonight was just too good to make you wait!

Camilla dipped into her collection of Van Cleef and Arpels jewelry for an official dinner in Muscat, choosing her Magic Alhambra diamond earrings from the jeweler. But the earrings aren't the story for me...

...it's THIS. Check out this enormous, diamond-encrusted cuff bracelet! Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't recall Camilla wearing this piece in public before. It's not her usual style -- though I think she wears it quite well -- so I'm speculating that it may have been a gift from their host. So wonderful!

Update: The bracelet, while still exciting, is not new -- Camilla previously wore it during a visit to Saudi Arabia. Still thinking it's probably a Middle Eastern gift!
