From Jackie Kennedy’s Watch to Princess Diana’s Cross Pendant, Inside Kim Kardashian’s Museum-Worthy Jewelry Collection

Clearly drawn to important pieces in fashion history, Kardashian also bid $379,500 for Jackie Kennedy’s Cartier Tank watch at a Christie’s auction in 2017. Engraved with “Stas to Jackie” on the back, the timepiece was gifted to the first lady by her brother-in-law, Stanislaw “Stas” Radziwill. Kardashian later revealed that she wore the watch when she met former US president Donald Trump at the White House in 2019, telling Vogue: “It gave me some power: let’s get in there and get this done!”

Kardashian’s penchant for auction hunting actually began more than a decade ago, when she spent $65,000 on three gold and jade bangles by Lorraine Schwartz, which previously belonged to her “idol” Elizabeth Taylor.

It seems that the love of collecting runs in the family, too, with Kardashian buying her daughter, North, a custom velvet jacket that was worn by Michael Jackson to Taylor’s 65th birthday (see the connections?) from Julien’s Auctions in 2019 for $65,625. She also bought a white fedora hat that Jackson wore in his “Smooth Criminal” music video for North, along with a pair of Elvis Presley’s rings for her brother Rob for $15,000 in 2020.

What will Kardashian acquire next? We’re betting on Carrie Bradshaw’s feathered bridal headpiece, which is going up for sale at Sotheby’s next month with a price tag of between $40,000 and $70,000.
