Since marrying Prince Charles in 2005, she has donned numerous noteworthy items, many of which belonged to the Queen Mother, while others are either family heirlooms or gifts from her spouse.

She wore the intricate Greville diamond parure during her first state visit to Uganda in 2007. 

In November 2022, she chose a sentimental parure for her first home State Banquet with the King, the George VI Victorian Suite, featuring diamonds and sapphires.

The Belgian Sapphire tiara, part of the George VI Victorian Suite, has a fascinating history, originating with Princess Louise of Belgium. 

The Duchess frequently wears the Greville Diamond Tiara, an extravagant piece loaned to her by the Queen. It was created by Boucheron in 1921 and is also known as the Boucheron Honeycomb Tiara.

Camilla often sports a pearl choker inherited from her mother, Rosalind Cubitt, with a gemstone clasp that varies to coordinate with her attire. As Queen Consort, she has paid tribute to the late Queen by selecting significant pieces for relevant occasions. She is expected to wear Queen Victoria's Coronation Necklace and Earrings during her coronation to honor Queen Elizabeth II, who wore them in 1953.
