While shopping with her sister in London, Jackie spotted the Sunburst Pin in an antique shop and instantly fell in love with it. The Sunburst was the symbol of King Louis XIV of France, the Sun King. However, when informed that the brooch cost over $50,000, she knew she had to find an independent solution! She returned to the USA after securing the shop owner's promise to not sell the piece, and went about quietly selling other jewelry. Jackie thoroughly enjoyed her new Sunburst Brooch and wore it constantly - on the shoulders of overcoats, on dresses, and even in her hair. It fast became, along with her Waterfall Earrings, one of her signature pieces. One historical occasion the Sunburst Pin was worn by Jackie in her hair during an official State Dinner held for the Shah of Iran and his empress. The theme of the event was Modern Dance and Jazz.
The Pin is 2 3/4 inches wide. Crafted in Platinum Plated Metal (pure rhodium) and is set with 155 Swarovski Crystals. Camrose & Kross Certificate of Authenticity Included. Romance Card is also Included - Interesting factoids about Jacqueline Kennedy and the Sunburst Pin.
