The Jewelry Insider

October 11, 2010

Jewelry lines and the Real Housewives franchise go together like D-listers and Dancing With The Stars. And while Atlanta’s Lisa Wu Hartwell and New York’s Ramona Singer actually have a dash of designer street cred to back up their baubles, Jersey’s Danielle Staub?

She seems better suited to peddle a line of cat-fight-proof hair extensions. Or stripper poles.

But, alas. Luxist reports the woman who inspired the table flip heard ’round the world is entering the jewelry fray with a line of cross styles she hopes to launch in time for the holiday season.

Staub says the crosses are “an insignia of just being close whether it’s a religious thing or a relationship thing.”

Manhattan-based jewelry house, Versani, is her named collaborator and they plan to offer rings and cuffs in addition to the cross necklace collection.

Thuggy body guards and frivolous law suits, not included.

For those of you who just can’t wait to get ‘close’ to the cross craze, I found a drama-free Joan Jett-inspired rocker style in sterling silver with diamond accents in JewelClub’s coffers for just over $80 ($168 off retail).

Wonder what the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will have to offer us in the diamond department? My DVR is already set for this Thursday’s debut. And my brain cells are already rotting.
