Now we’re talking: Some news about a new jewelry collection on HSN.
On Wednesday HSN announced that it has partnered with Universal Pictures to launch an exclusive collection of fashion jewelry inspired by some of Universal’s most iconic films. It debuts tomorrow, May 10.
“In celebration of the studio’s centennial anniversary, The Universal Vault Jewelry Collection — consisting of necklaces, bracelets, rings, earrings and pins — is designed to bring to life the romance, adventure and prestige of the past 100 years in film,” HSN said in its press release.
In 2012, Universal will be restoring and re-releasing 13 of its most well-known films.
“Films have influenced fashion trends for decades,” John Bosco, HSN’s senior vice president of apparel, accessories and jewelry, said in a canned statement. “Having access to Universal Pictures’ rich heritage of iconic films has given us an amazing opportunity to create a one-of-a-kind collection of timeless designs that celebrate the glitz and glamour of Hollywood.”
The Universal Vault Collection is inspired by Universal Pictures’ archives and the debut, themed after the “Glamorous Women of Hollywood,” with new themes and designs being added throughout the year based upon additional films.
The debut collection will feature more than 40 unique pieces ranging in price from $22.95 for a pair of button pearl earrings with a pave frame to $199.95 for a canary-and-clear pear-shaped drop necklace.
Other collection highlights include a regal emerald necklace, an aqua-and-jonquil burst ring and multicolored cluster earrings with pearl accents.
The collection is both glamorous and fashionable, pulling inspiration from Universal’s classic films such as ‘Pillow Talk,’ ‘Female on the Beach,’ ‘Lover Come Back,’ ‘Madame X’ and other iconic films that starred legendary actresses including Joan Crawford, Doris Day and Lana Turner.
“Universal’s library proudly houses some of the most iconic moments in film history, brought to life by the most stunning stars of the past 100 years,” said Stephanie Sperber, President of Universal Partnerships & Licensing. “Through The Universal Vault Collection, HSN continues to bring our classic titles to life with the same detail and care that we put into restoring our films for generations to come.”
The Universal Vault Collection will launch across all of HSN’s multiple platforms including television, online and HSN Mobile on May 10, at 2 a.m. and 10 p.m. Hollywood costume designer Debra McGuire will appear on HSN to showcase the collection.
