Fans of big rocks and fashion history, prepare to drool over QVC's latest collaboration.

Starting this fall, you'll be able to wear the Hope Diamond.

The television shopping giant is teaming up with the historic Smithsonian Museum to reproduce a jewelry collection inspired by the National Gem and Mineral Collection at the National Museum of Natural History.

The National Gem and Mineral Collection contains over 375,000 rare pieces, including the famous deep blue 44.5-carat Hope Diamond and the storied Marie Antoinette Earrings, a gargantuan pair of pear-shaped diamonds that were given to the extravagant royal by Louis XVI and are said to have been snatched from her during the French Revolution.

The QVC-licensed line, which will start at $85 and launch this fall, will feature reproductions of these two pieces, as well remakes from some of the museum's other highlights, such as a 75-carat emerald brooch said to be part of the belt buckle of a Turkish sultan, a dazzling emerald and diamond necklace from the Spanish Inquisition and the 23.1-carat Carmen Lucia Ruby Ring, a Burmese ruby set in a platinum and diamond bezel, that was donated by philanthropist Peter Buck.

The selection of earrings, rings, bracelets, pins and brooches on sale -- which give one the sense of browsing in a high-end jewelry store -- will be made with genuine gemstones, many of which are rare and collectible, including Smithsonite, amazonite, alexandrite, garnets, topaz, beryl, tourmaline and Bisbee turquoise.

If you can't wait until fall for these big baubles, you're in luck.

Next week, Melania Trump will be on QVC, hawking goods from her glamorous jewelry line, based on recreations from her extensive personal collection.
