Thanks Crowne for posting these pictures. The Belgian sapphire suite complements Queen Camilla but due to her bouffant hairstyle it should have been raised in height say on a set of single chain link old cut European diamonds. It kind of gets lost in her hair. The Queen consort head and hair is suited to bigger tiaras. I gather that the dark sapphires still signals a British Royal Court in mourning.
Those sapphire earrings are rocking it' they seem to be designed to carry larger sapphires or diamonds at the top as well. The British Royal vaults are deep.
Queen Camilla wearing QEII's Belgian sapphire tiara with the George VI sapphire necklace and matching bracelet. Sapphire earrings that I don't recall seeing before:
