Tell us about your jewelry line House of Fine Gold.
House of fine gold is a jewelry line for everyone. We have pieces for men and woman at all prices points and all styles.
What are some of your favorite pieces in this collection?|
Some of our favorite pieces would have to be the diamond cross pendant, all of our medallions, they are in style, and we both love wearing them. We just came up with new hair accessories that look really cool in a pony tail, it’s kind of like a fine silver extension.

What challenges come with being in the industry?
Christina and I have such great chemistry, we’re always laughing and we both are very creative. Working together is a lot of fun.
The jewelry industry is very competitive, as all industries are, but I feel especially with jewelry. You have to have a good understanding of the customer and what they are willing to spend on a trendy necklace.
Which celebrity would you say is the greatest muse behind your designs?
Obviously, Christina Milian. She is an incredible muse to have.
Buying a piece like this qualifies as an investment, what makes this line unique?
What makes this line unique is that we have jewelry for every woman and every occasion. We wanted to make sure everyone could find a little something!
What can we expect from House of Fine Gold in the future?
Lots of new pieces, and we also have a couple other surprises up our sleeves
As someone who designs for celebrities, which has been the most interesting piece of jewelry you have had to make.
I loved creating the paw print necklace for Khloe Kardashian when her dog passed away.
After working with the Kardashians, what do you admire most about them?What I admire most about the Kardashians is that they always are giving back. Even Malika, Khloe’s BFF, took the time to write me a thank you letter for the pieces I put together for her. They are very appreciative.
As someone who is in the beauty industry, how do you define beauty?
I believe everyone is beautiful. Everyone feels good when they get a piece of jewelry. That’s what I love most about this business is the smiles that come with it.
