Nicole Richie: Gem of Jewelry Partner

Sure, you’ve enjoyed watching Nicole Richie’s antics on The Simple Life, look for her blazing red carpet looks and can’t resist a good shot of a Sunday with Harlow, but what’s it like working with Joel Madden’s main squeeze?

“Effortless,” says Pascal Mouawad, Richie’s partner in her contemporary fashion jewel line House of Harlow 1960.

“She’s a style icon, and the line is very much her,” Mouawad tells Celebuzz.

No kidding.

Featuring cuffs, bracelets and cocktail rings, the collection evokes the glamourous but etherial look Richie has become known for.

“We did a great job at designing something that was super fashion forward and very affordable, ” Mouawad said of the collection, which retails for $30-$150, available at Kitson.

And there’s more on the way. Mouawad said they’re looking to do three full releases, including the maiden voyage which is already sold out, with two to follow in Spring and Fall of 2009.

“Right now we’re just focusing on fashion pieces, but we could potentially design something on the high end,” Mouawad said.

Well we know how Nicole feels about diamonds.
