Style icons tend to live on forever through their cultural influence on fashion. One such icon, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis managed to do that and more, as she is remembered for her grace, beauty and impeccable style. Even in 2012, Jackie O. is still a household name when it comes to style and it is very clear that refuses to loosen her grip on the world of fashion.
Luxury costume jewelry brand Ben-Amun has announce the launch of their exclusive collection on Amazon.com. Over 20 years ago, former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was photographed wearing a gold cuff designed by Ben-Amun to dinner at the Kennedy Library. That same cuff was later sold in her estate auction by Sotheby’s for $29,900. Now, Isaac Manevitz, Ben-Amun founder and designer has created a capsule collection inspired by this exact bracelet.
The Fall 2012 Gold Ball Collection will be sold during the month of September only on Amazon. Twenty percent of the wholesale cost of each purchase will be donated to Robin Hood, the New York City charity that John F. Kennedy Jr. served as a board member from 1991 to 1999.
The Ben-Amun pieces are handmade by a team of skilled craftsmen in their factory located in the garment district of New York City. The Gold Ball Collection pieces are made of gold plated pewter and brass and range from $170 to $750 for earring, bracelets and necklaces.
Ben-Amun’s Gold Ball Cuff, $745, will be available at www.Amazon.com. Visit Ben-Amun Jewelry on Amazon during the month of September to purchase pieces from this collection.
“Selling this new collection that was inspired by a piece of Ben-Amun jewelry worn by one of the most iconic trendsetters of our time just makes sense,” says Manevitz.
