|Van Cleef & Arpels Dragonfly Brooches|
They were created by Van Cleef & Arpels in their signature dragonfly theme, and were a gift from the Prince of Wales to his wife.
The brooches, or rather clips, are made of white gold. One of them is studded with blue sapphires, the other – diamonds. They are designed as a tribute to the lightness and femininity of Nature.

Because of the excellent craftsmanship and beautiful design, the dragonflies’ wings seem to be in motion. It’s almost as if they just stopped by to have a little rest and will take off at any time.
The Duchess has worn the brooches only a few times, including for Sandringham Flower Show in 2010, and a visit Channel Islands in 2012. Camilla usually dons them with blue outfits. Usually, she wears them together, one just below the other.
