Can you tell/show more?I mean the amethyst neckalce that Camilla wore.Well, I don't know much about it. I know that the necklace is featured in either Field or Menkes' books (or both) with a slightly wrong describtion and no photos. The necklace, as given to Lady Elizabeth, has been sketched in the ILN of the time and it's from this photo/sketch that we draw our conclusion that Camilla wore a redesigned version of it. Also, there are photographs of Queen Alexandra wearing a large heart-shaped coloured stone in a frame of diamonds pinned on the collar of her day dress. In the same photograph HM's also wearing a very long necklace, which might've been the source of the amethysts and pearls fro the later jewel. As of 1923 the necklace consisted of two lines (one shorter than he other) of three rows of seed pearls. The shorter line is divided in equal part by 9 stones, while there are 11 the longer (outer) line of pearls. Both a joined at the front by the large amethyst heart.

Written by lambskin » November 1st, 2012, 8:18 am:The ruby earrings are amazing. But not a fan of the wedding-like dress with the pearls-not a great fashion choice. I love the crown the Queen is wearing-my favorite in the next post.
Written by sunshine996 » November 1st, 2012, 2:26 pm:I will always love the Vladmir tiara! What is the Canadian Aquamarine tiara? Is it the one with one large central stone?I hope everyone is okay up in North East America! Sorry I haven't posted for a while.
Written by laurensmama » November 8th, 2012, 2:29 pm:Hello everyone, I realize that QE II received many jewels from Queen Mary either as personal gifts or because she is the Queen. However, I was wondering what did QEII receive (in either capacity) that originated with Queen Alexandria. There is so much history attached to some of these jewels, I was hoping to learn some more. Thanks.
Written by laurensmama » November 13th, 2012, 6:03 pm:Hello everyone,On the Sartorial Order blogspot, I saw a few small photos of Princess Maxima wearing a red dress and some lovely emeralds (a few posts ago, not too many). The pictures were not the best, so we may have already discussed them, but I was wondering if anyone had any additional information on them. Have always been partial to emeralds as they are my birthstone. Thanks.
