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.
