The Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Returns to QVC with a Chanel Classic

Pictured: Mi Amour, The QVC version of Chanel’s Paperclip necklace is part of the Jacqueline Kennedy Jewelry Collection.

If you don’t already know this, and you love to shop, it can be extremely dangerous to be home sick and watch QVC.  Between doses of Nyquil, I had to tune into the midnight show tonight of the QVC Jacqueline Kennedy collection.  If you haven’t check this out, QVC has a costume jewelry collection that is comprised of reproductions from the exquisite collection of the former First Lady.  The show will air again tomorrow (Sunday, June 27) from 4 pm to 6 pm EST/ 1pm to 3 pm PST.  But you won’t see my latest shopping trophy on the show, because it is already sold out (at least that is what QVC said on air.)  I just snatched up the QVC reproduction of the rare Coco Chanel paperclip necklace that Chanel designed in the 1920s.  It’s very beautiful, with Art Deco styling on the filigree clips accented by simulated gems. Apparently Jacqueline Kennedy wanted the necklace for years, but was not able to find one.  Her daughter Caroline found one of the necklaces at Sotheby’s when she was working there, and purchased it for her mother.  Thus,  the Chanel Paperclip necklace found its way into Jackie’s jewelry collection, and then later into QVC’s reproductions. The QVC version is selling for approximately $87.00 US.  If you have time tomorrow, and you are a fan of fine jewelry, reproduced at reasonable prices, check out the Jacqueline Kennedy collection. Many pieces are specially priced for the day because it is the sixth anniversary of the collection on QVC.  Among the items in this Anniversary special are an Art Deco simulated diamond brooch, the trademark Jacqueline Onassis square rimmed sunglasses, and a white & black bangle bracelet that was a gift from Truman Capote. All the Jacqueline Kennedy reproductions are made by jeweler Camrose & Kross.  They do an excellent job. I own several of the pieces, and always receive compliments when I wear them.

    The shows are fun to watch, too, because they tell the story behind each piece and show photos of Jackie wearing the jewelry. Congrats on the necklace!

    The comment about not buying Jackie Kennedy reproductions is ridiculous! It's not about making the Kennedys richer, it's about the timeless classic that Jackie Kennedy, herself, was. It's about what good taste and elegance were like in that time frame. Jackie personified grace, poise, elegance, and was a true “classic.” All of us who own her reproductions loved Jackie Kennedy and what she represented as a woman. It had nothing to do with her or her family's financial status. The jewelry reproductions-most made in China, but some still are made in the USA–are well made. If you ever do not like a piece or consider it cheaply made, you can return it to QVC! Just the stories about Jackie and the Kennedy family by Phil Katz are worth tuning in to QVC alone! So, forget about the money, and enjoy the ambience that Phil Katz creates about Jackie and her classic jewelry! It's about treasuring a piece of history tied to Jackie and that “Camelot” era!

    The Jackie pearls are not made in China. They are handmade glass beads covered in a pearl coating and still made in Czechoslavakia exactly as they were made for Jackie many years ago. In fact it is a limited amount of people who still make those glass covered pearls. They are not plastic like the ones made in China. Once those glass makers in Czechoslavakia die, they will no longer make those Jackie pearls made of glass.
