Real Housewives of New York City star Kelly Bensimon, who was spotted at many New York Fashion Week shows, has burst into the design world as well. Bensimon has launched her own jewelry line in collaboration with the Mouawad brand. The line consists of fashion necklaces, cuffs, earrings, and rings.
The pieces are made with pavé diamonds, which makes them very flashy, says Bensimon. think it’s safe to say this is a ‘bling’ collection. Bensimon says her inspiration for the collection was to, “take Pocahontas out of the canoe and into the disco.” None of the designs on the pieces are actual Navajo symbols, and Bensimon says that she just wanted to have fun and play with color.
She says her former husband Gilles Bensimon really inspired and enhanced her love of jewelry. “He’s always really, really, really pushed accessories,” says Bensimon.
The collection ranges from $30-$300 and is now available in stores such as Kitson, Intermix and on Kelly’s website. What do you think of Kelly Bensimon’s jewelry line? LIKE Us and Share on Facebook and @NYGirlStyle
