Mary J. Blige launches jewelry collection with LL Cool J’s wife

ID PRMary J. Blige and LL Cool J’s wife, Simone I. Smith, have launched the Sister Love jewelry line.

“What made me want to work with Simone is that she already created an amazingly successful jewelry line and all the pieces are things that I love, and she also has an amazing fashion sense,” Blige says in a statement. “I wanted to add to that by sharing some of my fashion sense with her and creating some things I dream about and I know other women are dreaming about.”

Smith adds, “It’s an exhilarating and proud feeling to partner with my girl, a divine woman full of black girl magic. As women working together, it’s important to be able to adjust each other’s crowns, instead of tearing each other down. We are working together with this collaboration to celebrate our friendship and successes and empower others from our strength of supporting each other.”  

Smith posted a teaser video for the line on Instagram utilizing the music of Blige’s song, “Strength of a Woman.”

Sister Love is part of the Simone I. Smith Jewelry collection launched in 2011. The line’s first accessory,  Queen Hoops earrings, are 18 karat gold over sterling silver. They are available on the Sister Love website.
