Now women everywhere can add a touch of luxury to their everyday lifestyle!"
In the New York City Collection, the "Fifth Avenue" watch includes genuine mother-of-pearl dials, princess-cut crystals and a signature design bracelet. In the Palm Beach Collection, "Ocean Boulevard" watches feature European crystals and leather straps in classic black in addition to rich jewel tones. The sparkling Paris "Champs-Elysees" timepiece is glamorous and jewelry-inspired while featuring mother-of-pearl dials and European crystals. The jewelry collection is as versatile as Trump's lifestyle, with bold, chunky chain necklaces that are perfect for a casual day of shopping and sparkling statement pieces that are ideal for red carpet events in Paris.
"We are excited to bring Melania's exquisite collection to QVC," said Debra Puzio, director of merchandising for QVC. "Each piece is as stylish and stunning as Melania and I believe that her personality and aesthetic will truly resonate with our customers."
