The Gifted JFK

June 9, 2009

These two exquisite pairs of earrings arrived in the mail last week from QVC. Both are from the Jacqueline Kennedy Collection- best described by QVC as “style that transcends the generations”. The collection offers amazing reproductions of Jacqueline’s jewelry, and QVC offers videos of Kennedy historian, Philip Katz, recounting the stories and significance behind each piece.

The earrings on the left were JFK’s 1959 birthday gift to Jacqueline. The second pair was JFK’s gift to her as a token for his appreciation for her help during his presidential campaign. In the video on, there are multiple photographs of Jacqueline wearing these earrings dressed up in a gown to dressed down in a pants suit. These earrings are versatile classic pieces that I’ll be keeping in my jewelry box for years to come.
