eBay was my new best friend these past weeks–just me searching for back issues of InStyle magazine. Why? Because of the special article in a few issues, titled “My Jewel Box,” where you can get an inside look into celebrity jewelry boxes. InStyle featured Christina Aguilera, Kimora Lee Simmons, Donatella Versace and Nicole Richie. Each article shows pictures of their jewelry, often featuring their collection in their own jewelry boxes and each lovely lady describes several pieces.
I love Nicole Richie’s large Louis Vuitton jewelry case, full of jewels from all over the world. She says her travels have helped her collection grow–always stopping by shops and boutiques in hopes of that special piece. A few items have been passed down from her mother, which is an important aspect of the unique history behind jewelry. Someday she will pass along her collection to Harlow.
Christina Aguilera’s jewelry is both sentimental and reflective of her changing style. A favorite of hers is a ruby and white gold locket, with “Max” written on it, with a photo of her son in it. She has necklaces of all kinds draped on gorgeous picture frames. Many of her pieces are designed by Stephen Webster–whom she appears in many ad campaigns for.
Kimora Lee Simmons never fails to disappoint when it comes to anything sparkly, so why should her jewelry box be anything less? She pulls out some stunning pieces in her spread, even discreetly keeping mum about how much certain rings cost (like that huge yellow diamond ring). She declares her love for Hello Kitty and even promotes her malachite charity bracelet, that I featured in my favorite charity bracelets post.
