If you've been reading me for a while, you know that I really admire Loren Ridinger. She's a woman that truly believes in her dreams, made them come true by starting an incredibly successful company called Market America. She also has her own makeup line Motives and a high-end jewelry line as well. When people ask me about starting a vision board, I always direct them to Loren's own post where she talks about how everything on her vision board came true. You can click on that post here. Anyway, Loren is now starting a more affordable jewelry line, exclusively being sold on HSN beginning December 12. Today we're talking to Loren about the line, and one of you girls will get the chance to win a bracelet from the line exclusively on beautylogic before it's debut on HSN. You lucky gals!! Click below to read more about Loren's new line, her advice to anyone who wants to give up on their dreams, and find out how you can win the bracelet.
1) You already have a jewelry line, what made you decide to launch your more affordable Yours by Loren line?
I have always dreamed of having an affordable, fine jewelry line for women everywhere. Not everyone has the luxury of spending a fortune on jewels, but with Yours by Loren™ you can look like you did at an affordable price! The collection has been a fantasy for me and I am so excited to see everything come together. All of the pieces are beautiful and people can create the look and feel that works for their personal style. I love offering inspiration and motivation in everything I do which is why I made sure that every piece is as incredible as the women who will be wearing them. Yours by Loren is my gift to you this holiday season and I hope the collection inspires you to be your most glamorous everywhere you go!
2) We spoke to you last year when we featured you as our first and only entrepemom, what has been going on with you since we last spoke?
It’s been a really busy year! In February I launched a new solution oriented product line, called Fixx™, a mineral line for my cosmetic line, Motives® by Loren Ridinger, a new unisex fragrance called Ours™ and of course Yours by Loren™ for HSN. I am also getting ready to launch MeetON.com, a new and leading live interactive social streaming platform that will bring people together around shared interests for amazing live, interactive experiences that build and maintain relationships through the social streaming platform. I also managed to find some time away for vacation and to spend with my family.
3) Tell me what we'll be able to find in the Yours by Loren line?
The collection has everything from fabulous cocktail rings, to bangles, cuffs, necklaces, earrings, there is a variety for everyone and for every occasion. I made sure to involve my friends in the creation of the line, to make sure I was including enough variety, as everyone has unique tastes and a different preference when it comes to jewelry.
4) What are some of your favorite pieces in the line?
I adore the Vermeil Smokey quartz/white quartz "couture" bangle because I originally made this bracelet for my dear friend Eva Longoria for my Loren Jewels line, everyone loved it, but it was not affordable for everyone. I decided to create this piece for the Yours by Loren line so that every woman would have the opportunity to own such a beautiful bracelet but at less than a fraction of the price. The Black rhodium white zircon “Bridge" ring is an amazing piece, the architecture of the ring reminds of all of the beautiful bridges in the world and the design of the ring is very unique. The moonstone and black onyx ring is incredibly chic and can be worn from day to night-it’s also the perfect accessory for the upcoming holiday season and will add the PERFECT amount of shimmer to any outfit. I will definitely be wearing it this holiday season!
5) How long did you work on the line?
I have always wanted to create an affordable jewelry line for women, but the intense planning, designing and creating took me about 6 months. I am so excited for it to go live on Dec. 12 on HSN. I will be live on-air from 10pm EST-12am EST.
6) What made you decide to exclusively sell it on HSN?
The demographics of HSN are unbelievable. It’s a network geared mostly towards women and is seen in 97 million homes. There is an affordable price point of the products sold on the network and I happen to love the variety of products they sell. When we first spoke about a potential partnership, I had already envisioned the pieces in the line and this whole concept came together seamlessly. This is also the first time HSN is allowing a partnership on their portal, so it’s really exciting. Yours by Loren™ will be sold on-air and exclusively online at www.hsn.com and SHOP.com (www.SHOP.com). Consumers benefit even more with cash back earnings when purchasing Yours by Loren™ thru SHOP.COM and then purchasing at HSN.com as they are a partner store.
