Garcelle Beauvais isn’t just holding diamonds anymore — she’s actually designing jewelry.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star, 54, launched a collaboration with Roni Blanshay this week, inspired by her “modern, classy and chic” personal style.
“This is so organic for me. I love jewelry,” Beauvais told Page Six Style in a recent interview, crediting her mother with instilling her attraction to all things sparkly.
“The first thing she put on was jewelry and the last thing she would take off is jewelry,” she explained.
“And I think nowadays, especially since we’ve dealt with COVID, putting on something that makes you feel good — whether you’re going to the store, picking up the kids or meeting friends, socially distanced — you can always put on something that makes you happy.”
While her Garcelle x Roni Blanshay collection just launched online at GarcellexRB.com, Beauvais’ “RHOBH” castmates and “The Real” co-hosts will be getting their hands on the pieces first.
“They’re all getting gifts. Absolutely. Even the ones that I’m not so fond of,” she laughed. “No, I’m kidding, I’m kidding!”
Beauvais told us she was heavily involved in the design process — she wouldn’t slap her name on anything that wasn’t the best quality — and she enjoyed every minute of it.
“Fashion is all about having fun, right?” she said. “It can lift your mood. It can set the tone to how you want to walk into a room. I think that’s what fashion is for. And accessories! We get to play dress-up and have different personalities.”
When it comes to the “Housewives,” however, sometimes those personalities can merge; while Lisa Rinna and Erika Jayne matched in pink blazer dresses and pajamas last year, Beauvais teased that Rinna winds up twinning with Kyle Richards this season.
“We kind of all shop at the same place a little bit!” she quipped.
Unfortunately, fans won’t see footage of Beauvais designing the jewels on Season 11 of the show, which premieres on Wednesday at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
“Because of COVID, we couldn’t do a lot of things. I mean, the fact that we shot the season during COVID, in quarantine — and even [with] some of the girls getting COVID — was really kind of tricky,” she explained.
“So, no, you won’t see the collection on the show. But, you know, I’m excited for the world to see it. I think a lot of women are really going to love it and be inspired by it.”
