Mary J. Blige is expanding her repertoire and she is doing so with her best friend, Simone I. Smith. Together, they are launching a new jewelry line appropriately named Sister Love.
Blige and Smith, who is also LL Cool J’s wife, released their debut accessory, the “Queen Hoops Earrings,” at the 2018 Essence Festival this past weekend. The earring were a huge hit, selling out rather quickly. There are still a limited amount available for purchase at SisterLoveMJB.com and they retail for $199.
“What made me want to work with Simone is 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 said 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.”
With Sister Love, Smith and Blige want to spread a message of positivity and empowerment. “We are working together with this collaboration to celebrate our friendship and successes and empower others from our strength of supporting each other.”
