HSN Diamond Girl Carol Brodie Rocks Accessory, Home Decor Collection

Our girlfriend Carol Brodie is branching out on HSN.

Blonde beauty Brodie, who does one of HSN’s top-selling brands — Rarities: Fine Jewelry — is launching a collection of home decor and fashion accessories this Friday on the home shopping network.

Here’s the dope from the press release Tuesday:

The Carol Brodie Collection includes a home decor assortment inspired by her favorite jewels. Collaborating with high-end home fragrance company D. L. & Co., the line features candles and diffusers adorned with evil eye and peacock feather jeweled pendants with an intriguing scents of Amethyst Dahlia, Sapphire Spice, Ruby Jasmine or Emerald Rose.

The assortment also features decorative throw pillows, jewel encrusted picture frames and plush throws — from $29.95 to $99.95.

The Carol Brodie Collection also features on-trend yet practical accessories ranging from $29 to $448, including leather handbags with coordinated wallets and wristlets, fashionable sunglasses, nesting cosmetic cases and jeweled key chains that make a statement — everything a woman needs to organize her life and look fabulous doing it.

“Every accessory in a woman’s life should create a moment, a memory and have a story to tell,” Brodie said in a statement. “My collection includes pieces that range from affordable to aspirational, all inspired by the designs featured in my fine jewelry line. The HSN customer appreciates the unique designs and craftsmanship of Rarities Fine Jewelry… my new line will build upon the top-selling styles that resonate with my customer.”

Here are some of Brodie’s claims to fame:

Brodie was the mastermind behind some of the most memorable red carpet styles, including the custom-designed cognac and orange diamond jewels, worn by Halle Berry as she captured the 2001 Best Actress Award for Monster’s Ball; and Gwyneth Paltrow’s winning look as she nabbed the 1999 Best Actress Award for her role in Shakespeare in Love.

Her work on the red carpet during her nine-year tenure at Harry Winston earned her the moniker, Queen of Diamonds, as well as numerous awards and accolades throughout the fashion and fine jewelry industries.

“Carol has impeccable taste and knows what our customer craves to enhance their own personal style,” Anne Martin-Vachon, HSN’s chief merchandising officer, said in a canned statement. “Rarities: Fine Jewelry with Carol Brodie has become one of HSN’s top-selling fine jewelry brands and we know that her new line of accessories will continue to expand her impressive following of loyal and devoted fans.”

Brodie debuts her new collection during the “Carol Brodie: Accessorize Your Life” premiere Friday at 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.

    Inside story…
    Skip Borghese’s Wife “Katie” Who is one of the most amazing women of all times…(who had a fabulous line of home decore at HSN, was told to ” Hit The Road”…Now we know why!

    Let’s Just say…The All American Dream, of having an idea/product, is down the old toilet for anyone of Mid-America status at HSN. It’s not what you know, or how hard you work…it’s about “Who can rub elbows with who”…and at who’s expense. “Are you ALREADY a somebody?”…and if your Not, then you probably don’t belong at HSN.

    Getting an item / BUILDING a brand on HSN now a days, is all about “Star Endorsements”…

    Just remember one thing, most of these celebrities are “ACTORS / ACTRESSES”, let me repeat… Actors and Actresses!!!

    Hopefully her home decor line is better quality than her jewelty line.

    I found Carol’s home decor and accessories much like her jewelry line..stylish and on trend, but a tad pricy for what it is. I’ll wait until it goes on sale…

    This is late to the post, but no less relevant. It’s time for Brodie and all her starlet name dropping to hit the rode!!! I used to be a fan of hers and God only know how much $$$ I’ve spent. Not because she knows movie stars, or is called the queen of Diamonds. I used to buy her jewelry because it was unique, well-made, quality. Not anymore!! This last visit she actually stood up and yelled at the producers that the prices were wrong on her items and she’s not making money!! How disgusting! Be a lady! She also has started berating other jewelry vendors on HSN. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you Carol!!
    The quality of her ” fine jewelry” has gone down. So much so, that I’m wondering if she sold the company and its being manufactured elsewhere?
    She also credits so much to her tenure with Mr. Winston. I don’t think she even has a JPC from the GIA! I am so tired of Ms. Brody and her mediocre jewelry.
    Time for her to shut her loud mouth and get back in the studio!
