|The Turquoise Demi-Parure|
The style of the necklace was very popular in late Victorian and early Edwardian times so in all probability it (and presumably, the earrings as well) is a late 19th or early 20th century design.

One of the first occasions Camilla wore this necklace to was Prince Charles’ 50th birthday celebrations at Highgrove in 1998. Camilla wore the demi-parure with a velvet peacock gown by Antony Price that had been specially designed to showcase the magnificent jewellery. Since her wedding, the Duchess has worn the set on various occasions, from day to evening events, and even with a tiara.
