Landing on the internet this fall, exclusively at Endless.com: Nicky Hilton's foray into costume jewelry. Yup. The socialite sister-of-Paris has teamed up with Titan Baubles to create pieces that are wholesaling for between $35 and $480 (that'll probably work out to between $100 and $1,400 retail at a standard-ish markup).
"I’m a crazy jewelry collector. I've always known since I was a teenager that I wanted to do a line. Whenever I bought something, whether at a flea market in Paris or a bazaar in India, I've been collecting pieces," Hilton said.
Here's a sampling of the first collection (above). What do you think?
On a tangent: Does anybody remember Hilton's short-lived clothing label, Chick by Nicky Hilton? Or how about back when Nicky was the designer behind Samantha Thavasa handbags? Well, you know what they say: If at first you don't succeed, keep beating that dead horse. Or something like that.
