Badgley Mischka to launch fine jewelry
The boys at Badgley Mischka seem to be branching out into all areas of fashion lately, first it was a wedding dress line, then a swimwear line (or was it in the opposite order?), and now comes the news that they're branching out into fine jewelry. WWD reports that the first collection will include 37 styles of engagement rings, with prices starting from $2,000 for a small diamond and pearl piece to $250,000 for a ruby and diamond suite. "We're diamond fanatics," said Mark Badgley. "Fine jewelry is such a logical expression of luxury. Customers of our couture all wear fine jewelry." The collection, which was created with Zalemark Corp. will launch this September. I wonder if you buy one of their engagement rings, if you could get a deal on a wedding dress? No doubt BM fan, Teri Hatcher, will be spotted wearing a piece on two on the red carpet soon.
