L.A.'s "It" girls ensure that your jewelry box is fitted with a muse-worthy mix of bijoux. With their exceptional eye for trends and matched affinity for a classic aesthetic, Brokaw and Lerman have perfected the intersection of uptown chic and downtown cool. These A-Listers are giving everyday girls a taste of luxury. The best part? The line is budget friendly.
Rich Skinny Pretty gets the exclusive on the line as the girls dish on their personal style and give the skinny on Stella and Bow. Their line delivers allure, charm and is the ultimate in versatility. You can spot them dashing from afternoon meetings to evening cocktails without every missing a step. Of course, with Brokaw adorning the Cassat earrings while Lerman layers the Bazille necklace. You can thank me later for the intro...
