Jacqueline Kennedy Egyptian Style Simulated Pearl Necklace
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
Lovely & Cool @ The Same Time
Ladies I think you will really like this; it's super cool and the pearls make it lovely at the same time. It seems like good quality and it looks very unique.
Timelessly Classical and Mysterious
This is just exceptional! All the elements are perfect in my opinion. How can you go wrong with pearls? And as Philip tells us, they are of such a high quality. The length is very flattering as well and a nice focal point for various styles of tops. The pendant has sparkle to it and in just the right amount, not too over the top , nor too subdued. And then the figure of the Egyptian! Who ever sees that? So extremely unique, and if you are a fan of Egyptian history, as I am, it makes this even more desirable. Then, add in the Jacqueline Kennedy factor, and it is a must have purchase. If you are on the fence about this, don't be. No one else will have this and everyone will ask where you got it ,and they may even think it's an Estate piece. It is absolutely unique!!!!!
Striking, elegant, absolutely beautiful: Those were the compliments I received upon wearing it yesterday. The detail and symmetry of the Egyptian pendant creates a uniqueness of its own. I listened to Philip Katz describe it as one of his favorites and now it has become mine. I love the history behind each of JBK pieces. Well done.
