Reproduction Engagement Ring

History of the Original

John F. Kennedy went to shop for Jackie’s engagement ring with a dear friend from his Navy years named Lem Billings. They had spent hours looking through rings at Van Cleef & Arpels in New York when Senator Kennedy finally asked for one of their top designers to help design a ring that was traditional in style but that no one else had. After a few weeks, a series of designs were submitted to JFK, and he immediately picked out his favorite. He thought it best to surprise Jackie and did not ask her for her thoughts on the matter – a slight miscalculation. Jackie had long dreamed to pick out an engagement ring with her intended. Although she had to admit it was one the most beautiful rings she had ever seen, Jackie was disappointed in what she called Jack’s “old-fashioned” ways. Incidentally, Jackie also wanted a sleek and modern wedding dress but finally succumbed to Jack’s wishes for a more traditional, frilly dress.

The original ring was made with a flawless Colombian Emerald, surrounded by fine, flawless diamonds, including a marquise-cut lower row and a round-cut upper row. The emerald was Jack’s choice, as it represented the “Emerald Isle” of Ireland. The emerald would show up in a few more very important gifts he would present to Jackie.

The replica is made in sterling silver with more than three microns of 24K gold (120 mils. thick), a style known as vermeil. The stones in the replica are cubic zirconia, cut by one of the finest stonecutters in Asia, while the center emerald was created especially for this ring by Swarovski.

The original ring was remodeled by Jackie in 1962, using the services of Van Cleef & Arpels to make it a bypass design. Jackie was so unsure of the redesign, she had a paste model made and wore it for six months before deciding to go ahead with the changes. The completed ring, along with Jackie’s Berry Pin, is kept behind bulletproof glass at the John F. Kennedy Library in Boston.

10 Stars! This ring is much more beautiful in person than in the picture! I've been looking at this ring for a long time & finally got it on Leap Day when I could get it for 4 Easy Pays & I'm so glad I did. It's the birthstone ring I've always wanted...I also got the JBK Kunsite ring the same day. That one's gorgeous too! 03-18-08

better in person Love it . So glam. Ladies this one deserve a 10. The stone in the middle is so sparkly and the color is right. 01-08-08
Classic Beauty What a gorgeous ring. Have had it for years. I had priced one very similar that was at least half the size and 10 thousand dollars in a local upscale jewelry store.- not worth it on many levels for me. I wore this ring on vacation at the Ritz. Even my jeweler friend was fooled in the bright light of the sunny beach. Its big but not unbelievable when worn in the correct places and with appropriate clothing. Fun! I actually would have preferred it and paid a little more to have it set in real gold or an 18k overlay. 12-27-07
Emerald Beauty This is very classic and bold emerald look ring, I am petite and this is absolutely stunning. I just love the piece. I can imagine how stunning this ring looked was on JBK hand, the real one must be out of this world. I recommend it for is beauty and for it history. John F. Kennedy knew how to impress a lady! 12-19-07
Too big I liked the emerald color of this stone but that was about it. I returned this ring. 10-30-07
" A BEAUTIFUL, BREATHTAKING RING " IT WAS SO BREATH TAKING WHEN I OPENED THE BOX!! I CAN'T IMAGINE THE REAL ONE LOOKING ANY PRETTIER THAT MINE!! THIS IS A REAL WINNER!! Jo Ann , Clearwater, Fl. 10-19-07
Average Purchase I received this ring and fell in love with it. I had it for a few years and only have worn it on special occasions. When putting it on for a wedding I noticed that one of the stones was missing. It is very noticeable and the ring is now useless. Please be very careful and have the stones checked. 09-17-07
Beautiful I bought this ring because of the story -- love Jackie! It is beautiful. And I appreciate that it is prong set, unlike a lot of the other Jackie jewelry. It is large but I love big rings! Amazingly, I have a look alike about 1/4 this size. I got it about 30 years ago. 09-01-07
you will not believe your eyes I purchased this ring hoping it would look as good as it does on TV, but imagine my surprise when the ring looked even better in person. I love this ring and people are always grabbing my hand to take a closer look. When my sister saw this ring she almost fainted and to this day does not believe that the ring is made of CZ's and metal, which is just fine by me. Buy this ring and enjoy it and the compliments that will come with it! Have a blast! 08-31-07
gorgeous I am tall and have long fingers so can wear the big rings. I hestitated because I was afraid it would look too fake. But, when I received it, I said who cares. It has a lovely brilliance to it and is comfortabel. I love the JK pieces and the stories. She was and is a wonderful piece of history and brought grace and dignity to the White House and I didn't even vote for President Kennedy. 08-28-07
