Looks like Rebecca Romijn won’t be needing to hire designers for her jewelry line anytime soon. Her daughters are already practicing their sketches.
PureWow sat down with the actress to get all the details on her new line of gems, Charlie Dolly. The floating diamond collection includes a range of earrings, necklaces, bracelets and rings that are laser-pierced to give the floating diamond effect—AKA there’s no setting included.
During the interview, Romijn revealed how she originally got involved in the world of diamonds. “Living a very free-spirited, bohemian upbringing in Berkeley, California, raised by artists and activists, I’d never seen a diamond in person until I started modeling in Paris in 1991.”
The 47-year-old mother of two also opened up about the process of designing each piece and the role her twin daughters Charlie and Dolly (who the line is named after) play.
“As I learned about the technology of laser piercing diamonds, I immediately started sketching my designs,” she said. “When I bought my design book, it came in a pack of three and my kids were like ‘Can I have a design book? I want to draw jewelry.’ Then they started sketching also and some of their designs were good. I told them ‘Girls next up we’re going to start putting yours into the collection.’” We can’t wait to see what they came up with.
One thing’s for sure—our 11-year-old self was making macaroni necklaces, not diamond necklaces.
