Focus on. Camilla's Jewels: Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra Earrings

Another Van Cleef & Arpels pieces from the Duchess of Cornwall’s collection are these beautiful earrings.
Van Cleef & Arpels Magic Alhambra Earrings
Ever since 1968, Alhambra – Van Cleef & Arpels’ symbol of luck – has appeared in a variety of elegant guises, inspired by different materials and occasions. All of these Magic Alhambra pieces are individually numbered and signed by Van Cleef & Arpels.

These stunning drop earrings are executed in the firm’s traditional Magic Alhambra motif. They consist of three clips made of 18kt white gold pave-set with a total of 4.5 carats of diamonds. The earrings have an approximate lenth of 70mm and are 20mm in diameter.

These earrings appear to be recent acquisition because I have never seen the Duchess wear them prior to 2012. Among the few events Camilla opted to wear these ear clips was the Prince’s Trust Comedy Gala at the Royal Albert Hall in November of 2012.

I hope we’ll see more outings of this pair because, in my opinion, these are some of the most beautiful earrings in the Duchess’s collection (I’ll be covering my most favourite pair tomorrow – the wonderful Diamond Drop Earrings).
