Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen aren’t the star designers to try their hand at a jewelry line these days. Beyonce and mom Tina Knowles are adding a jewelry line to their already-successful brand House of Dereon. The mother-daughter design team have partnered with jewelry company Carolee, who also produces jewelry for Lauren by Ralph Lauren, ABS by Allen Schwartz and Brooks Brothers, to create a complete collection of jewels consisting of necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings. All the pieces will incorporate various metals, man-made pearls, crystals and more. “I am so passionate about jewelry. As both a designer and a stylist, I know the important role jewelry plays in completing your total look, ” Tina Knowles said in a released statement. What’s better, the line will be completely affordable, with prices ranging from $16- $68.
