There was a nice breath of fresh air on HSN last night: gorgeous jewelry.
We’ve barely been watching HSN or QVC, since with our DNA a new iPod or Nook doesn’t really float our boats.
But yesterday a new jewelry line called “Yours by Loren” debuted on HSN, featuring a collection by Loren Ridinger. Her pricey couture pricey line has a celebrity following, and last night her clients actress Eva Longoria and reality TV star Khloe Kardashian called in to wish her well.
Loren, a gorgeous cat-eyed brunette, had some striking gemstone and sterling pieces, which host Colleen Lopez showed off nicely.
Our favorites were two go-big-or-go-home rings, “honkers,” as former QVC host Kathy Levine would call them. First, there was a 24 carat smokey quartz ring, which was enormous. And then there was a 12.6-carat crystal quartz ring that Loren said was exactly modeled after a real diamond — yes, I said diamond — ring that her husband gave her to replace her original CZ wedding ring.
Now that’s a good husband. Those big rings were $200, on special.
We also loved a white topaz heart pendant, for $160.
There were other pieces we loved, as well. Check out the link:
