The Hope Diamonique


In an effort to make money educate the public, the Smithsonian sold its soul to the home shopping gods.

This fall, QVC will be selling faux copies of the priceless jewels housed at the Smithsonian. So get ready to buy more and save! The Marie Antoinette Earrings on three easy payments of $29.99 -- that's less than a $1 a day! And you don't even have to get your head chopped off to enjoy them.

Smithsonian curators will have a part in creating about 30 pieces for the QVC collection. However, unlike the Jacqueline Kennedy collection, the pieces won't be exact replicas of the originals, instead they will be interpreted for a more modern aesthetic. In other words, the Hope Diamond won't be 45 carats of faux fabulousness since that would obviously be waaay too flashy for everyday wear. Twenty carats would be so much more understated.

Check out the jewels of the Smithsonian (why is there a Spanish Inquisition Necklace???)

  1. I'm rather partial to the Napoleon I Diamond Necklace. These days faux ain't cheap; let's hope for mucho flex-pays!

    BTW, glad you're back in the saddle, QB... we missed you!

  3. I own one of each already. I wear them with a crisp white blouse when out to feed the animals in the zoo-like atmosphere, here at my home.
