Description

Stunning gold brooch and necklace worn by the beloved fashion icon and kept until her death in 1994

Kennedy’s personally-owned and -worn brooch and necklace. Gold gilt metal cross brooch measures 3 x 3.5, has a horizontal pin-back and is marked on the back, “Christian Lacroix, Made in Paris.” The gold gilt metal bead necklace measures 22″ long, with the cross measuring 3 x 4.75, with no visible maker’s marks. In fine condition. Though Jackie Kennedy owned some of the finest jewelry in the world, she also had a great fondness for relatively inexpensive costume jewelry. While some were designer costume pieces, such as this stunning brooch from renowned French designer Christian LaCroix, some were simply beautiful pieces that caught her eye. These two items, straight from Jackie’s estate, are dazzling reminders of the First Lady’s iconic style. Provenance: From the collection of John Strangi, purchased through Sotheby’s 1996 auction of The Estate of Jacqueline Kennedy. RR Auction COA.
