When the couple arrived in Bordeaux for the final day of their trip, the Queen stepped off the plane wearing a turquoise coat dress by Anna Valentine, a diamond brooch that belonged to the late Queen Elizabeth II and some of her longest serving earrings.
Leading diamond experts at UK retailer Steven Stone have revealed everything there is to know about the pieces.
Turquoise & Diamond Earrings
Estimated Value: £15,000 ($20,000)
Queen Camilla was wearing a pair of turquoise and diamond drop earrings that she often wears with a matching necklace.
Set in a flower design, the earrings feature turquoise in the centre, surrounded by round cut diamonds.
Nineteenth century creations, both the earrings and necklace are thought to be an inheritance from within Camilla’s family.
Friday wasn’t the first time that we’d seen these particular earrings and Camilla has been wearing them at important events since before her marriage to Charles. In 1999, she wore them and the matching necklace to the then Prince of Wales’ 50th birthday celebrations at Highgrove. More recently, she wore them with her Golden Kiwi Necklace for a visit to Basseterre in 2019.
Diamond experts at Steven Stone estimate the earrings to be worth £15,000.
Art Deco Brooch
Estimated Value: £200,000 ($250,000)
Queen Camilla was also sporting an eye-catching diamond brooch on her last day in France.
The rectangular shaped brooch features four triangular panels set with diamonds, with a large stone set where the panels join together.
It was previously worn by Queen Camilla for Christmas at Sandringham in December 2022 and Royal Ascot in June 2023. In fact, it was a tweet from the Ascot Twitter account that confirmed that the platinum piece previously belonged to Queen Elizabeth II.
Both Princess Anne and Camilla are known to wear the same brooches to races and it’s possible that Camilla now sees this particular piece as a lucky charm as when she wore it at this year’s Royal Ascot, her horse Desert Hero came first in the King George V Stakes.
Diamond experts at Steven Stone estimate the brooch to be worth a staggering £200,000.
