Designer jewelry collections are a dime-a-dozen these days. From Real Housewives to Bachelorettes and beyond, it seems every C-list reality star with 15 minutes of fame thinks they have the fashion smarts to design bling real women want to wear.
It ain’t that easy, folks.
So when I see a designer jewelry collection with REAL fashion street cred behind it? It’s like finding a needle in the proverbial fashion haystack – and I have to share it with my fellow jewelry hounds.
Yes, THE ELLE – as in the iconic Paris-based, fashion magazine that started during WWII and evolved into the world’s #1 fashion publication. Not only was ELLE responsible for encouraging the ‘pants revolution’ back in the 40s, freeing women from the confines of stockings and skirts (huzzah!), they were the first publication to be founded and run entirely by – women. Love it!
I love their fashion credo even more:
“We believe clothing without accessories is like a party with no cake” (or champagne, as the case may be…)
Long story short? If you have the ELLE fashion juggernaut behind a jewelry collection? You know you’re going to have well-designed, versatile, stylish pieces at price points every woman will find worthy of their hard-earned cash.
Here are some of my favorite pieces from the new boutique:

And, as always, weigh in with your thoughts about the line here. I love to hear the jewelry hounds bark!
