Jacqueline Kennedy Goldtone Paperclip Necklace
Lovely addition to my collection
The Jacqueline Kennedy line was truly one of my favorites of all time on QVC. So, when I heard the sad news that this exquisite line was on it's way out I decided to order a few pieces that I had admired for years. This was one of them. While yellow gold isn't really my favorite, I decided to go with the yellow over the silver to stay closer to the original design. Let me tell you, I am not disappointed. This is a versatile, well made, beautiful necklace. I have gotten a lot of use out of it, and received compliments as well. I have had absolutely no trouble with the gold tone tarnishing. I recommend this piece. I'm certainly glad I finally decided to purchase it. I will miss this line of jewelry, and continue to hold out hope that it may return someday....
versatile "go to" piece
I purchased this necklace for the Coco Chanel design and later bought the bracelet and silver set. Although I prefer the silver, both sets go with everything and the necklace can be worn long or short, single or double strand or as a belt. My jeweler made dangle earrings from 2 links of the bracelets in both silver and gold. Rated this a "4" due to my preference for silver over gold and the blue stones over the diamond look. Miss the JBK collection on QVC!
must be polished
I purchased this necklace the first time QVC offered it. The initial wearing brought many compliments and then the necklace was returned to its original case. Tarnish appeared immediately after and the coloring has remained "off". Today I was using polishing creme on some stainless flatware pieces and noticed that the creme's manufacturer claims it can be used on any metal jewelry. Feeling there was nothing to lose, I carefully cleaned and polished every link and finding on the necklace. It took a couple of hours (while watching football), but the piece is now restored to its original color and shine. Not wanting to repeat this experience, the necklace is now stored in an anti-tarnish jewelry box. QVC would do well by their customers to note the need for such storage of this piece.
ordered one for Mom after she saw mine
I ordered one for me and then when my mom saw it she decided she wanted one for Christmas.
Preview Your Review
I've had this necklace for a while now & purposely held off writing a review until I could see if it discolored as some reviewers have stated. I live in Hawaii so it is always directly next to my skin (i.e.- not around the collar of a blouse, turtleneck, etc.# and mine is as beautiful as the day I got it. I KNOW for certain that metals #even gold# can be affected by a person's body chemistry, so perhaps that's the problem some women are having. #My dad turned a 14 K gold necklace almost black, and the color & shine could not be brought back. Jewelers said they'd never seen anything like it before.)
This is truly a beautiful piece. Every time I wear it I get rave reviews. It is the perfect weight and my husband thought it was real gold, I wish! I am happy with it and would recommend it to others.
The gold tone falls/wears off and all you have left is a dirty brownish color chains. Very serious disappointment. The hype of Chanel is what pulled me in. Purchased other pieces on the same day. Had nothing but trouble. If you email the company, you do not hear back. Once the 30 days are up, monies are gone and all you have is a pile of trash. And to think this co is a rep for one of our first ladies. UGH!!
Heavy but Elegant Vintage & Fun Piece All in One
I sat on the fence for a long time about this necklace, I loved the look of it, it's the perfect 1920s' style flapper necklace, chic and fun, but was worried because of some reviews about the finish wearing off. I can't afford to throw money away like that. But when I heard this line was retiring I knew it was now or never and, also encouraged by the easy pay offer on at the time, I ordered both silver and gold versions of this necklace. I love them both. I don't wear them everyday, and don't plan to, as I only wear heavy necklaces on occasion, but so far both are holding up beautifully.
On The Fence
I bought this necklace and returned it after wearing it once. I am considering buying it again since the collection is being retired. I have been more than satisfied with previous JKC pieces but is a little skeptical about this piece. I am considering purchasing it again. It is a beautiful piece but not sure it is a good value.
Fabulous, Fabulous, Fabulous!!!
I am so glad I got this Coco Chanel famous necklace and bracelet!! I recently showed my granddaughter all my Jackie pieces and she was very taken with them. I told her one day they would be hers which delighted her. I know she will appreciate and enjoy them as I have.
I bought this over one year ago, wore it 3 times and just threw it away. The gold-tone covering immediately wore away at the clasp and down both sides. What an expensive price for cheap costume jewelry. My only purchase from QVC that I regret.
Sad and Dissappointed
This necklace is cheap looking, but the price is high. I was SO disappointed and would never wear it, it's a shame because I was CERTAIN that it would be wonderful, costume, but wonderful. Jackie Kennedy deserves better than that. This looked like cheap bargain basement jewelry for a high price.
