Nicole Richie’s Surprisingly Cute & Affordable Jewelry
In the midst of adjusting to motherhood, Nicole Richie seems to have found the time to design a line of 60s- and 70s-influenced accessories. The line, House of Harlow 1960, just launched at Kitson in Los Angeles in conjunction with the boutique’s opening a new Melrose outpost, borrows its name from Richie’s daughter with Joel Madden. The celebrity-turned-jewelry designer phenomenon is nothing new; Jamie Lynn Sigler just announced plans to launch a collection, and meanwhile Heidi Klum has been selling her namesake line for some time. But Richie’s line isn’t your typical celeb pet project. Not only is it cute — it’s relatively cheap to boot.
Marked from $30 to $150, the line targets teens through 30-somethings. Highlights include pyramid bangles (priced at $68), antique-inspired gold bangles (a mere $35), and a black leather ring ($38) that’s inspired by African jewelry. Next up for Richie: a maternity line, which according to WWD, was inspired by the fact that she wore a lot of Balenciaga while she was pregnant. While I’m not exactly grasping the connection, I suppose a Richie-approved maternity line that channels Balenciaga can’t be all bad.
