Jackie Kennedy Interchangeable Dual Faux Pearl Floral Leaf Pierced Earrings
These replica Jackie Kennedy Interchangeable Dual Faux Pearl Floral Leaf Pierced Earrings feature hand-painted and removable faux glass pearls, 36 cubic zirconia, and 18k gold- and rhodium-plated settings. A first anniversary gift from her husband Senator John F. Kennedy, the original diamond-encrusted pair with black Tahitian pearl drops was made by Tiffany’s New York. A year later Jackie had Tiffany’s redesign the pair so that white glass pearls could be interchanged with the black ones and the studs could be worn without pearls. Hypoallergenic posts. Elegant presentation case. Certificate of authenticity. 0.75"l.
Jackie Kennedy’s fashion choices were so stylish—glass pearls, statement jewelry, a simple tank watch—they are as on-trend today as in the heyday of Camelot. New to our collection are her spectacular interchangeable pearl earrings, and two stunning bracelets (one with matching earrings). These exquisite and timeless reproductions recall many of Jackie’s personal items (including her signature faux pearls) in First Ladies, one of the most popular exhibits at our National Museum of American History.
Every Smithsonian purchase will arrive with a museum provenance card explaining how it is adapted from or inspired by an object or objects in our collection.
Additional Gemstone InformationThe only gemstones made by living creatures, rare NATURAL PEARLS are produced by mollusks who layer calcium carbonate around a microscopic irritant. Most pearls used commercially today are FRESHWATER PEARLS, cultured or farmed by implanting a grafted piece of shell into freshwater pearl mussels. SHELL PEARLS, also known as simulated or replica pearls are made from mother-of-pearl. Pearl is the birthstone for June.
