The Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Returns to QVC with a Chanel Classic
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.
