The Jewelry Insider

March 9, 2009

A while back I shared with you that Nicole Richie was yet another star getting into the celebrity jewelry business by creating her own boho chic line, House of Harlow 1960. The good news is – the line is actually quite good.

This weekend, House of Harlow 1960 officially launched at the exclusive West Hollywood boutique, Kitson Melrose, and the famous mom-to-be was there to drum up the jewelry buzz.

“I am so excited to be launching House of Harlow 1960,” Nicole told JustJared.com at the event.

“This is a chance for me to personally thank the people who have supported the line and supported my dreams. I am so blessed and am so thankful everyday that all of my dreams are coming true.”

Currently expecting her second child with rocker, Joel Madden, the former “Simple Life” star greeted fans and posed for pictures while wearing her signature styles.

House of Harlow 1960 is named after Richie’s daughter and celebrates the period fashions of both the 60s and 70s. Think art deco meets bohemian chic.

Price points are reasonable, from $30 – $250 and the line is only available at Kitson storefronts and on their website.

I applaud you, Nicole, for going from an annoying Paris Hilton BFF to a brick house in the fashion world. Her jewels are ‘mighty mighty’ in my book.

What do you guys think of her line? Over the top or just the right celebrity statement?

Reality wild child turned style icon, Nicole Richie, has set her sights on a new venture: jewelry. Richie’s new line, House of Harlow 1960, is named after her daughter and celebrates the period fashions of both the 60s and 70s. Think art deco meets bohemian chic.

The 27-year-old celebutante partnered with celebrity jeweler, Pascal Mouawad, to bring her vision to life, and the collection takes inspiration from her sought-after style. Using leather, silk strings, chains, rivets, gold plated metals and a jewel-toned color palette, the jewelry explores “every theme true to the bohemian look; from gypsy to tribal, flower child to edgy street wear,” according to a press release.

October’s InStyle Magazine features Nicole and her baubles, and in it she describes her jewelry philosophy:

“I don’t like anything tiny. I guess it would make more sense for me, but I’m drawn to large, eclectic pieces.”

Lucky for us, the price tag is not large or eclectic with a reasonable range of $30 – $250. We’re sure these well-designed, yet affordable, baubles will make her target audience of teens to 30-somethings loosen their purse strings – or dance on the ceiling (couldn’t resist).

But don’t look for House of Harlow in mass market outlets like Target or Kohls. The collection is only available at the famous LA boutique, Kitson, when it opens its new store in November. Not to worry, though. For those not living in la la land, you can shop Harlow online at www.shopkitson.com.
