Will it be the antique or modern turquoises?
Camilla’s Turquoise Necklace vs. The Jordanian Turquoise Necklace
Though the Duchess of Cornwall has added many royal pieces to her jewelry collection over the last decade and a half, some of her jewels have come to her through her own aristocratic family connections. Among them is this suite of jewels, a distinctive set of turquoise and diamond jewels includes an elaborate necklace and a coordinating pair of earrings. The necklace features diamond and turquoise clusters and pendants interspersed with diamond fringe sections. She’s been wearing the demi-parure in public for almost two decades.
Queen Elizabeth II received this suite of diamond, turquoise, and sapphire jewelry from a fellow monarch, King Hussein of Jordan, during a state visit to his country in 1966. The set includes an intricate necklace and coordinating earrings. The necklace incorporates interesting festoon and pendant motifs in its design. Unfortunately for royal jewelry lovers who want to see more of the Queen’s lesser-worn jewels, the Queen rarely wears the demi-parure, although she has sometimes brought it out of the vaults at Jordanian-related events.
