The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall are currently on a visit to several African nations, and on Monday, their tour program included a state dinner in Ghana.

For the occasion, Camilla reached into her extensive and growing collection of pieces from Van Cleef and Arpels, choosing a necklace and coordinating earrings from the firm's Snowflake range.

We've seen the earrings before: Camilla wore them in the summer of 2017 for the Spanish state banquet at Buckingham Palace.

On this occasion, though, she wore the earrings and necklace together as a matched set. The necklace features a pendant set on a thin diamond chain.

Camilla also wore a diamond tennis bracelet on her left wrist.

The Duchess is a devotee of Van Cleef and Arpels -- and, if I'm guessing correctly, her husband enjoys purchasing her pieces from the firm. What do you think of the Snowflakes for an important night in Ghana?
