Serena Williams has already ventured into the fashion industry but now its time to add something new as she releases a jewelry line!
Serena Williams is not just an amazing tennis player, shes a mother, a wife, a fashion designer and now she can add a jewelry designer.
When Williams takes to the court, it’s not only about her fashion that has the fans admiring her look, its also the fact that she wears necklaces and earrings, bracelets and rings during just about every game.
“I am obsessed with hearts,” she says. “If you go back and look at photos, pretty much all my matches—99% of the time—you see me wearing some sort of heart necklace.”
So it only made sense that she release Serena Williams Jewelry this month which features pieces like rings, bracelets, and necklaces, a diamond-encrusted dog tag, and diamond earrings that spell out SEXY as well as LOVE. Altogether, there are 70 core pieces in this collection with a price tag ranging from $299 to $10,000.
“I remember a long, long time ago I wore this diamond star ring on my right hand that everyone looked at and was like, ‘How do you play wearing that?’ ” She’d said about a piece she bought at 17.
“It wasn’t anything super-fancy—it had a really interesting shape; it almost looked like a starfish, but with four arms instead of five. But it was fine. I’ve always worn crazy jewelry on the court—massive rings, diamonds, necklaces. I mean, most people like jewelry, but I love jewelry.”
While the pieces might be a little bit pricy, it due to the fact that Williams is allergic to a lot of metals so she wanted pieces designed with real gold or silver but still “price-friendly.”
When talking about her collection to Vogue, she mentioned that all of her pieces are meant to be diverse being able to take pieces from one event to the next.
“I’m a little bit everywhere” she says. “on the red carpet and the tennis court,” as she puts it. “You don’t have to change pieces, but you can add pieces—something more bold, or more strong, or even something with a word on it—even if it’s a more delicate piece. It’s just about expressing yourself.”
But her love for fashion is not just her, it dates back to her mother, grandmother, and sisters.
“Their ability to play with accessories and use different statement pieces has always had an influence on me. It’s amazing how each of us are influenced by each other—yet our style remains unique,” she says.
