I love her ring 🙂  I got emeralds in my wedding band partly because of that (a little part, but still!)

We have the same birthday and my whole life my family and friends have commented on my love of sunglasses, purses, coats and boucle jackets as being my Jackie O’ problem.

This is a great post! Add Princess Di/Kate Middleton to the famous ladies with coloured rings. (or ring, seeing as it is the same one)

I like the Kennedy ring far more than the Onassis ring, personally. Man, that diamond is an egregious monster!

I am a big time Jacqueline Kennedy fan.  I thought I would share a tidbit I heard while watching something about her.  After the death of JFK she tried to have the redesigned ring put back the way it was when JFK gave it to her.  Apparently there was not enough gold in the redesigned ring to put it back the way it was (she didn’t want new gold added) so she had another ring made that duplicated the original engagement ring in everyway except that the diamonds surrounded a pear shaped emerald instead of an emerald cut emerald.  She wore it as a right hand ring.  Interesting, huh?

Yowza!  If I had that second ring it might go into a vault too!

If I had the second ring, I’d wear it every day–no one would think it was real:)
