John Fitzgerald Kennedy proposed to Jacqueline Bouvier on June 24, 1953 with an upcoming wedding date set for September 12, 1953.  He asked for her hand in marriage with a custom designed Van Cleef & Arpels engagement ring jewelry.  This unique crossover design features a 2.84 carat emerald and a 2.88 carat diamond with baguette cut diamond accents. Later on, she had her engagement ring jewelry redesigned replacing the baguettes with marquis and round diamonds.  After JFK’s death, Jackie decided to have her engagement ring jewelry reset in the original design.
