Nikki Reed: Turquoise necklace is so special

Nikki Reed

Nikki Reed has shared which items from her personal jewellery collection mean the most to her and named an item she inherited as her most precious.

The star has teamed up with 7 For All Mankind on a special capsule collection of necklaces, bracelets and earrings.

The 24-year-old shared which jewellery items in her personal collection mean the most to her.

“When I was a little girl my grandmother gave me a beautiful turquoise necklace that she got in New Mexico like, 30 years ago. I’m too scared to wear it though!" she exclaimed to Hollywood Life. "I don’t want to lose it!”

The Twilight star married American Idol contestant Paul McDonald in 2011.

Another piece of jewellery she owns, an inexpensive necklace from a vintage store, means a lot to her as it is something Paul picked out.

“Obviously my wedding ring is very special to me, but I’ll never forget the first piece of jewellery he bought for me. It’s a $10 bird necklace from a vintage store he got while he was doing a show in New York," she gushed. "I still wear it all the time! I knew he got my style right away!”

Nikki has her own successful jewellery label Mattlin Era.

Her collaboration with the denim retailer on the five pieces was inspired after seeing its Spring 2013 collection. Nikki revealed where she usually gets her jewellery design ideas from, admitting she sometimes asks her fashionable husband for his opinion.

“Paul is always happy to let me bounce ideas off of him. He obviously has great style and great ideas," she laughed.

“With some of the pieces I used patterns in the new denim collection as inspiration. I also designed a few of the pieces, for example, the Starry Night Necklace, because I felt I was missing them in my own jewellery closet.”
