DWTS’ Maksim Chmerkovskiy To Launch Jewelry Line

Dancing With The Stars jewelry usually comes in the guise of the big, bold and blingy ballroom baubles found on the show’s leading ladies. But hunky dance pro, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, isn’t one to be left out of the mix.

The hottie hoofer and Kirstie Alley-partner tweeted that he’s,

“VERY EXCITED to announce that my jewelry line “MAKSIM” is being launched at the end of May! Amazon.com and Endless.com Retailers all over the country shortly after!”

No word yet on price points or design elements, but he promised to post some teaser pics soon. Stay tuned. He also tweeted that while MAKSIM is a men’s jewelry line, women will be able to sport his styles too.

“My jewelry line is predominantly for men, but women can certainly wear it. Pictures coming soon so you can tell me what you think.”

Somehow, I don’t think he’ll have a problem attracting the female audience.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Jewelry

Who was the lucky recipient of a floating diamond necklace from Jason of Beverly Hills, a Louboutin Spike Purse, a pair of Gucci Anaconda, Louboutin BoBo and Let Me Tell You Something shoes? All of this loot went to one lucky Cheryl Burke on her birthday – all gifts from her Dancing With The Stars partner, Chad OchoCinco! This on TOP of the $10,000 diamond ring he gave her a few weeks ago.

I guess this Twitpic Chad took of the lucky lady says is all.

All this dancing diamond hoop-la got me wondering about the other contestants on the show, who are often seen in bling worthy of their own body guards. But I was pleased to discover that much of the jewelry they wear on the dance floor is both affordable AND available for fans to purchase. Designer, Anne Koplik, is the exclusive source of jewelry for DWTS contestants and has a gallery full of styles you can bring home to your own jewelry box. These red crystal-embellished earrings for $38 are like those worn by Cheryl Burke this season, according to the Anne Koplik website:

Or these spider-web styles for only $60 are just like the earrings worn by Shawn Johsnon as she was crowned the winner of season 8.

There are over 60 styles to choose from – all reasonable ways to bring a little DWTS bling to your life. Unless you can get Chad’s number. And give it to me.

Diamonds on “Dancing With The Stars”

Dancing With The Stars is known for its gaudy display of costume jewelry, but this latest DWTS diamond ditty is my favorite so far.

Cincinnati Bengal superstar, Chad OchoCinco, gave dancing partner, Cheryl Burke, a huge diamond ring ‘thank you’ after last night’s rowsing Paso Doble performance according to Us Weekly.

Said Cheryl of the surprise stash,

“At first I was like, Is this even real?…not even any of my boyfriends have given me anything like this! Ochocinco likes the bling!”

So what’s the final carat count? Ocho only told US “A lot”, but a source revealed the icy ring set in platinum came from Jason of Beverly Hills and cost more than $10,000.

Child, please!

Full disclosure: The Bengals are my hometown team and Chad is either a “love him or hate him” kinda player. But after this shiny gesture not only is he my favorite footballer – he’s the one I’m rooting for to take the DWTS crystal ball.

What do you guys think? Do you think he’s trying just a little too hard? Does he have a chance to beat that skater guy and the former Pussycat Doll? Will he win Cheryl’s heart in the end? Weigh in!
