Jackie O's treasures

The World went crazy about famous pearls these days! Two strands of Jacqueline Kennedy's faux pearls and a pair of her simulated pearl and diamond ear-clips went up for auction this Monday, just two months after the London's exposition of MM's famous pearl choker.

Bonhams auction house was organising the sale. The jewelry was presented as a part of "Pioneers of Popular Culture" collection, and all items were sold for an astonishing US$ 24,200 for the ear-clips, US$ 14,900 for the single strand, and US$ 46,600 for the triple strand! Jackie O's iconic style with A-line dresses, clean-cut suits, and yes, pearls, continues to be so universally admired that even her costume jewelry is worth a fortune. 

The 18-inch triple strand received special attention from the buyers. It is the very same necklace that Jacqueline Kennedy was wearing while living at the White House. It incorporates champagne-colored  faux pearls and is adorned with a simulated emerald and diamond sterling silver clasp.
