JACKIE'S JEWELRY FETCHES NEARLY $80,000
London, England - World renowned auction house, Bonhams, reported that on Sunday they sold two faux pearl necklaces and a pair of faux diamond and pearl earrings previously worn by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy for approximately $80,000.
The costume jewelry had a value of only several hundred dollars but sold for approximately 10,000 times their value due to the ongoing legend still associated with Mrs. Kennedy's status as a respected fashion icon.

A Bonham's jewelry expert said, "it's fair to say that 99.9% of the value is because they belonged to Jackie Kennedy."
The jewelry was sold by an unidentified British collector after first being purchased at Sotheby's 1996 auction of the Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis' estate.
The Bohams auction was the culmination of the first Vintage at Goodwood Festival, a three-day event celebrating all that is best about British popular culture in music, fashion, art, design and film.
