It is unknown exactly how many jewelry sets exist, however the Imperial Sell Sheet states 24 Assorted Styles. One of the main reasons for the confusion is it appears the placement of the rings and necklaces in the package were completely random. Each package contains 1 necklace and 2 rings, so the combinations could obviously be much more than 24.

The necklace is made up of a cheap gold chain with clasp, and an oval pendant attached to the bottom. Each pendant features a character from Series 1 or Series 2. The rings are identical to those sold individually in the Fashion Ring Box and feature one character from either Series 1 or Series 2 on a cheap gold ring.

In 2014 I was fortunate enough to track down a FULL BOX of Jewelry Sets. This particular box features the French-Canadian text, and is extremely rare. The box contains a total of 24 unopened Jewelry Sets (a total of 24 different characters on the pendants)
