Upscale Jewelry Designer Carol Brodie Sourced Jennifer Lopez’s Pink Diamond For Ben Affleck, And Mentioned Our Blog On HSN

Brodie's HSN amethyst ring, not the pink diamond

Harry Winston jewelry house veteran Carol Brodie was on HSN Thursday night with her Rarities line, and we heard a tidbit we didn’t know about her.

Brodie was the jewelry person who sourced the famous — or infamous — pink diamond that Ben Affleck gave Jennifer Lopez during their ill-fated romance, according to host Connie Craig-Carroll. She didn’t name names, we knew what celebrities she was talking about.

Brodie referred to the Lopez pink diamond engagement ring as “the ring that helped put me on the map.”

The topic came up when Craig-Carroll and Brodie were talking about a 4.3 carat Rose de France amethyst ring, with micropave diamonds, whose color was very similar to a pink diamond. It was $100 on HSN.

Brodie said the amethyst in her HSN ring was “cut like a fine diamond,” and that “I took a personal loss on this” by selling it at the $100 price point on HSN.

The pendant that prompted the poop headline

Brodie then made mention of a blog we did about one of her appearances a few months back. She was talking about a tusk pendant on that show, and described an African safari she’d been on. Brodie joked that she never saw an elephant, but did see mounds of steaming elephant dung.

Last night, Brodie was selling the same tusk pendant, and told viewers that a blog — namely us — had talked about her giving the “poop” about elephants during that prior appearance. Guilty as charged. We put “poop” in that headline.

And feel free to mention our blog name, Homeshoppingista, on your next appearance Carol!
