"A Gift From a Queen" - A Beautiful Cross and A Piece of Land Within Britain
The UK's Queen Mother gave Jackie this stunning sapphire and gold cross, one of the most beautiful in her collection of more than 200. This cross was accompanied with a gift of land to the American people from the people of England on May 14, 1965. The single acre at Runnymede in Surrey is situated next to the location where the Magna Carta, the foundational document for English - and American - civil liberties, was sealed by King John in 1215.
The memorial site, 20 miles west of London, was dedicated to the memory of John F. Kennedy following his assassination and is actually United States soil. It features a stone inscribed with words from the president's inaugural address in 1961 and flies the American flag.
For this cross, the Queen Mother chose sapphire stones from her own jewelry which were originally a wedding gift given to Queen Victoria.
Wear an expression of timeless beauty with this reproduction of the Queen Mother's cross. An oval, sapphire-colored Swarovski crystal in the center is complemented by clear and blue round Swarovski crystals on the arms of the the Byzantine Cross. From the Jacqueline Kennedy Jewelry Collection. It is reproduced in the exact design, weight, measurement and color of stones as the original.
