Get the Look of Estate Gems: Jewelry from Ramona Singer’s New Line on HSN

Between wrapping up filming for Season Five of the Real Housewives of New York City and launching a new wine, one of our favorite housewives and my friend Ramona Singer has also added a new collection to her jewelry line for HSN.  This new collection includes some fun art deco pieces inspired by old Hollywood glamour — just like the ones you saw all over the red carpet this past awards season. If you miss seeing Ramona in action and are waiting patiently for next seasons RHONY, check out her third year anniversary show with HSN on March 14th at 5 pm.  You can also shop her collection online.  Here are some of my favorite pieces:

White Topaz & Diamond with Black Enamel Sterling Silver Earrings, $339.90
These dramatic earrings are perfect if you need a great pair of earrings to wear to a cocktail party or a black tie. I love how the black enamel makes the silver and diamonds pop.

White Topaz Sterling Silver Oval Pendant, $399.90
This statement pendant is special and looks very vintage chic. Wear it with a shift dress or even a crisp white button down and pants — a great addition to any accessories collection.


Bezel-Set Gem Station Sterling Silver Necklace, $374.90
Ramona gave me this gorgeous necklace for my birthday and it became my go-to piece during fashion week.  It’s so on-trend, goes with so many outfits, and is great for layering with other jewelry.


Ramona Singer is an astute businesswoman and a true aficionado of fashion with a passion for being a wife and mother. In addition to her role on BRAVO’s The Real Housewives of New York City, Ramona has taken the beauty and accessory industries by storm.

Her businesses include Tru Renewal skin care, True Faith Jewelry, Ramona Singer Collections on Amazon and most notably, Ramona Singer Jewelry for HSN. Her line of pendants, bracelets, earrings and rings, priced $200 and up, was inspired by her love for estate and art deco, which she says she adores because it is timeless. Having conquered the design world, Ramona was inspired to create a skin care line, Tru Renewal, after struggling to find products she herself could use that were effective, yet free of chemicals that could potentially harm and irritate her skin.

Ramona’s newest venture has her expanding to the wine world with Ramona Pinot Grigio.

Tiffany & Co. New Collections Two Thousand and Ten Preview: Fall into Tiffany’s

Whoever said diamonds are a girl’s best friend definitely knew what they were talking about! While at Tiffany & Co.’s New Collections 2010 Preview, I fell in love with the Micropave diamond bangle set in platinum. SO chic! The cuff—drenched in 3,330 diamonds for a total of 61.37 sparkling carats—is out of this world, and so is the price. At $150,000, it’s beyond the budget of most people. Tiffany’s fall and holiday collections have plenty of other amazing pieces at more accessible prices. I love the Elsa Peretti starfish pendant in black jade, $475, perfect for summer. If you don’t like the black version, it comes in rock crystal and sterling silver too! And I can just see myself living in the fun, flirty, and elegant Paloma Picasso rose gold “Love” diamond pendant, $1,600. Without sacrificing style for affordability, try Picasso’s equally elegant “Kiss” pendant in sterling silver, a gentler $150.—Melissa Meyers
