Queen Camilla and King Charles landed in France this afternoon for their three-day visit, where they’ll receive a ceremonial welcome at Paris’s Arc de Triomphe and attend a state banquet at the Palace of Versailles.
Camilla never fails to dazzle with her outfits and she looked elegant as ever in a light pink coat dress by Fiona Clare. As always, it was her jewellery that caught our eye and she was sporting what’s thought to be her favourite pearl choker.
Camilla’s necklace features four strands of cultured pearls, linked by a round clasp of round Edwardian cut diamonds, with a combined weight of 3 carats.
Cultured pearls are genuine pearls, produced by an oyster or mollusk, but with human assistance. Though cultured pearls are genuine pearls, they’re much less rare than natural pearls, which means that they’re worth less.
Long associated with royalty, pearls symbolise class, luxury and femininity – making the choker a particularly fitting piece for Camilla, who is a powerful and prominent social figure.
Edwardian jewellery also represents femininity, adding to the symbolic nature of Camilla’s necklace that sat perfectly alongside her pink coat dress.
