The Jewelry Insider

June 28, 2010

Jewelry and the New York Housewives go together like pinot grigio and ‘turtle time’ – so it comes as no surprise that Hamptons hottie, Kelly Bensimon, is adding more trinkets to her celebrity jewelry line.

While Bensimon described her previous jewelry offering as ‘Pocahontas goes to the disco’ (huh?), her recent bauble collection has a more bodacious provenance:

“One of the most influential icons for me has always been Raquel Welch,” Bensimon, 42, tells in a statement. “Wrapped in suede and golden-tanned skin, Welch in One Million B.C. epitomized raw beauty.”

The creatively named, “Kelly by Kelly Killoren Bensimon” collection mixes metals, leather, feathers and crystals and ranges from $50 to $150 at Intermix stores across the country.

Bensimon also designed a limited number of baubles for charity, with 100% of the proceeds going to Feeding America.

At least she’s not dropping a dance tune.
