Jacqueline Kennedy Egyptian Style Simulated Pearl Necklace
I love Egyptian items, and Egypt itself. This is a necklace that you won't see yourself coming and going. I plan to wear it with my Bob Mackie maxi dress to my son's Wedding.
Can be worn many different ways
I have been on the fence about this piece for a long time but when it dropped in price for lunchtime special, i decided to take a chance. I am glad I ignored some of the negative reviews.
The pearls are outstanding and the 'multi-functions' of this piece are an added benefit. I just unclipped the pendant caerfully, since my eyes aren't as good as they used to be, but it come off successfully and hooked the pearls together. The pstrand is now just the perfect length to me to take on and off over my head. The peals are the heavy glass quality of the 3 strands pieces.
Looking at the pendant, I feel it is well made but not really my style since I don't wear much Eyptian. However, it I decide to wear it, it can easily be put on a chord or chain through the bail without using o-ring clips. I may surprise myself and select it more often that I think!
I am sorry to see the JBK shows end as I along with many, many others enjoyed the highly interesting & historical aspects presented along with insight into the lives of JFK & JBK. Hopefully, I gave some ideas for people thinking of picking this up.
SO UNUSUAL & LOVELY!!!
I am glad I ignored some of the negative reviews and ordered this beautiful JBK necklace. The pearls are just outstanding and the 'multi-functions' of this piece are an added benefit BUT most of all it gives a touch of history that will probably never be duplicated. So sorry to see the JBK shows end as I along with many, many others enjoyed the highly interesting & historical aspects presented along with insight into the lives of JFK & JBK. Thank you.
Beautiful and Unusual Piece !
I didn't know what to expect from this piece taking into account the mixed reviews. I can only speak for myself but the one I received is perfect and beautifully made. I like the fact that it can be worn without the pendant but probably wouldn't because that is what makes the necklace special. It seems to hang straight although I haven't worn it over a long stretch. I just find it so enchanting that I can't stop looking at it. Plan to wear with a boat neck little black dress. As always, JBK jewelry packaging is flawless as is the documentation.
Got my attention because it was unusual. But when it arrived, it just looked extremely cheap! Pearls are nice. I like that you can unhook the pendant. BUT pendant looks like it was bought at a $1 store. What a disappointment! How do they make something like this look so nice on camera?
Excellent costume jewelry!
I have several pieces of the Jacqueline Kennedy collection of jewelry. All of it is made very well and very beautiful for what it is - costume jewelry. It is not "fine jewelry" made of gold, real pearls, diamonds, etc. That being said, some pieces may "fool" some folks but that is not why I purchased this item and others of the collection. I love the uniqueness of the designs such as this Egyptian style necklace. I have a real 22k cartouche necklace purchased in Egypt but lots of people have cartouche necklaces. This necklace is striking and different!
This necklace is gorgeous! The pendant looks to be the highest quality in craftsmanship and the gold looks to be the real thing. I walked in to my local jeweler and they thought that it was made of real gold and they raved over it's uniquesness and quality. Right now as wearing this lovely piece - I feel like the lady in the Straight Talk commercial who is feeling RICH. Next I will be mistaking my Pontiac for a Bentley. Great job Camrose and Kross.
Love, Love, Love it!
I just received this necklace today and WOW! Just stunning. It reminds me of jewelry my mom use to wear. Updated by with a vintage feel. It has such a beautiful classic feel. Could be worn dressed up or casual. Highly recommend.
Costume Looking and Over Priced
I thought I would like the pendant because it is unusual but the pendant, pearl combo didn't appeal to me and the this piece looks like cheap costume jewelry; it is not a good reproduction and over priced. I returned it.
WHAT WAS I THINKING?
AT FIRST THIS CAUGHT MY EYE BECAUSE IT IS UNUSUAL...WHEN IT CAME HOME TO ME....IT IS JUST REDICULOUS LOOKING.......I WOULD NEVER WEAR THIS......IT IS SO LARGE....BACK IT GOES........
I'm on the Fence...
Yes, this is pretty, but the pendant is very lightweight and thin - it seems that it could be more substantial without making it too heavy. The pearls are terrific, but the clasps are very difficult to use because they are so tiny. It is an unusual necklace, which attracted me to it in the first place. I'm undecided if I'll keep it or not - $80 is a lot of money for something I don't love! Also, this doesn't seem like the same great quality as the other JBK items I've purchased over the years.
I was first attracted to this necklace because of its versatility. Once I opened the box and saw how lovely the pearls were, I knew it was a good buy. I wonder if Jackie had other pendant pieces that she attached to the pearls. I would buy other pendant pieces that are from the Kennedy collection or not from the collection, if the buyers were to bring it to QVC. This would make a perfect TSV with 3 auto purchase on the pendants
