Southamptonite Ramona Singer goes on HSN Wednesday
Ramona Singer Jewelry for HSN: back by popular demand. The feisty star of Bravo's "The Real Housewives of New York City" will be live on HSN from noon to 2 p.m. Aug. 11 debuting about two dozen new designs and talking to fans.
The part-time Southampton's estate-inspired, accessibly priced line has become a multimillion-dollar brand. Plus, she says, “designing it is very exciting.” And, we love to see Singer excited.
What’s new? “I brought in turquoise,” she tells us. You can find her signature cuffs and matching rings in turquoise and amethyst. “There are also earrings inspired by Van Cleef and Arpel’s floral motif. I’m always getting ideas from famous jewelers. I want everyone to have that elegant look.”
But it’s not too new to make the old pieces obsolete. “All jewelry from this collection can be paired with the last,” she wants you to know. “ It doesn’t have to be matchy matchy.”
The collection is made with real diamonds and gemstones. The pieces sell from $200 to $599.
“My theme is the red carpet, Madison Avenue look without paying a ton of money,” Singer tells us. To prove the point, she walks the red carpet in nothing else.
Even more affordable, the Truefaith Jewelry line, which she launched with husband, Mario, using CZ diamonds and selling from $49 to $189. Her skin care line, Trurenewal sells on Amazon as well as on her website ramonasinger.com.
This weekend, Singer wore her jewels to the Midsummer Garden Fete in Water Mill to benefit the Princess Grace Foundation. She mingled with Prince Albert, Christie Brinkley and Rick and Kathy Hilton. “Christie’s son, Jack is the same age as my daughter Avery, and has been to our house in the Hamptons, “ Singer tells us. “I told Christie what a gentlemen he is. ‘It’s nice to get a compliment about my son,’ she replied, ‘but I have to tell you, my daughter Alexa loves you in the show and imitates you all the time.’ I told her one day Alexa has to come over and show me that imitation.” Wouldn’t we all like to see that!
