According to belief, talented people are talented in everything. And that no doubt applies to Jackie. Everything she did was great, whether it was writing a book, cooking dinner, or designing jewelry.
In 1965 she married an artist and art connoisseur Oscar Lerman, and it was he who instilled in her the passion for collecting. In search of antiques, they visited flea markets in Paris and London together, and her passion for collecting began. She loved art and objects that sparked her imagination. A special hobby was big cats – panthers, leopards and tigers. Later, she embodied these images in her author’s designs. Passion jewelry lover, she had an extensive collection of jewelry made by world’s famous designers. In particular, Cartier, Carolee, Nolan Miller, Trifari, Christian Dior, Lori Rodkin, David Yurman, Stephen Webster and many more. As for Collins, she preferred oversized jewelry, and leopard, panther and cheetah jewelry was her signature style.
Jackie until the very last days showed incredible resilience and love of life. Unfortunately, in September 2015, Jacqueline Jill Collins died of breast cancer at the age of 77. After her death, auction houses sold off her vast jewelry collection.
