'RHONY' Star Kelly Bensimon Says YOU Can Be A Fashion 'Chameleon' With Her Jewelry!

The model, magazine editor and reality star gave us a sneak peek at her brand new jewelry collection!

Kelly Bensimon,Real Housewives of New York reality star, sat down with and gave us the exclusive scoop on her super-chic new jewelry collection! She gave us a glance at her line and shared her passion for crafting jewelry.

Kelly, 43, has been making jewelry for a long time — but she says her most recent collection is inspired by youth culture. “What’s on the streets is urban, modern, and young, and that is where fashion comes from,” she says.

Her down-to-earth, effortlessly chic style is also reflected in her jewelry. The collection is full of large statement pieces, lots of different bold colors, and also has a funky 70’s vibe that I can’t get enough of! Kelly said the reason she’s so found of her recent collection is because of it’s versatility. “The jewelry has legs — it has day to night mobility and allows you to be a chameleon,” she says. Kelly clearly knows the importance of jewelry and that it can make or break an outfit!

Her biggest tip? “Channel the icons that you love! Whoever it is that you emulate, just think, ‘What would they do?'” I think that’s what I love the most about Kelly — she always seems to follow her own advice, even when it comes to style.

For those looking for an edgier vibe, I’m sure they can appreciate how fun the collection is — almost all the pieces are named after rockstars from the 70’s and 80’s! Some of her personal favorites include Steven Tyler and Led Zeppelin, and their inspiration is definitely evident in the collection.

Aside from being totally wearable and chic, the collection is also super-affordable, with pieces starting as low as $50. “Looking good doesn’t have a price point if the quality is there, and the quality of all of my items is 100%. I wouldn’t make something that I wouldn’t wear and I wear all of my pieces,” Kelly said.

We love Kelly’s jewelry and her attitude! Not only are you a great jewelry designer, Kelly, but you seem totally fun — we can’t wait to pick up a few of your pieces ASAP!
