This replica was made
from Jacqueline Kennedy's personal jewelry collection.
John Kennedy was so elated that
Jackie had accepted his proposal of marriage that he purchased
this very special 'second' engagement present for her on July
11, 1953. The original bracelet came from Van Cleef and Arpels
on Fifth Avenue in New York. Jackie was elated with the
bracelet and was very moved by her fiancé’s thoughtfulness. In
fact, when she was designing a bracelet for her wedding day,
she decided that this bracelet would serve as the basis for
its design. Jackie would wear both the Engagement Bracelet and
the Wedding Bracelet for the rest of her life. The engagement
bracelet is currently owned by Caroline Kennedy.
This platinum plated
engagement bangle bracelet has 38 Swarovski crystals and a box and
tongue clasp. Bangle is 2 1/4" across, with a hinge opening.
7/16" wide. Great for weddings, anniversaries,
birthdays or "just because."
