With 50s and 60s inspired clothing, jewellery and accessories the height of retro fashion right now, it's a great time for The Jacqueline Kennedy Collection to be airing on QVC.

We've picked a few key pieces from the upcoming shows, and here are the stories behind the designs.


Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Emerald Green Crystal Ring

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Emerald Green Crystal Ring This ring is based on an early piece of jewellery from Jacqueline's own collection. It was specialy commissioned by her family to celebrate her return from France, where she'd been studying.

The green crystal is a perfect replica of the stunning emerald in the original. Jackie wore this ring on her right hand, as at this time she was yet to meet John F Kennedy.

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Crystal Bracelet

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Crystal Bracelet This gorgeous bracelet is truly fit for a princess. The Kennedy family originated in Ireland, and they favoured emerld-set jewellery as a reminder of their link to 'the Emerald Isle'.

From humble begins, the Kennedy clan rose to prominance and power in both the business and political arenas, yet they never forgot their proud Irish heritage.

Our version of this famous bracelet features vivid green crystals, giving you the look of fine emeralds for less.

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Double Strand Glass Pearl Necklace

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Double Strand Glass Pearl Necklace Jackie's famous necklace can be seen in many iconic photographs of the First Lady, including the picture top left.

This perfect recreation of the necklace features lustrous ivory glass pearls and a fancy clasp decorated with a sapphire-coloured crystal and simulated diamonds.

If you've got a special occasion to attend, this is the ideal piece to finish off your outfit.

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Linked Circles Bracelet

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Linked Circles Bracelet The above picture also shows Jacqueline Kennedy wearing her linked circles bracelet, which was one of her favourite pieces of jewellery.

Jackie was a fan of the circle motif, with its clean lines and symbolism of eternity. Our version of this Kennedy classic is smothered in Swarovski clear crystals and simulated rubies, so you're sure to stand out from the crowd whenever you wear it.

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Black Leather Tank Watch

Jacqueline Kennedy Collection Black Leather Strap Tank Watch A truly stunning timepiece, this iconic photograph was taken whilst Jackie was still in mourning for her first husband, US President John F Kennedy.

This classic watch has been faithfully reproduced with the fine gold-tone detailing and the highest quality crystals replacing the diamonds to give you the luxe look of the original.

With its simple, chic design and genuine leather strap, this is a watch that you'll love to wear time and again.
