First we had a chance to sneak a peek into The Real Housewives of New York alum Bethenny Frankel's closet, (opens in new tab) and now we're checking in with The Real Housewives of Atlanta star Cynthia Bailey. Bailey, who is the latest guest to appear in Marie Claire's Precious Metals series, walks us through her favorite jewelry pieces. Like Frankel (if you've watched her video already (opens in new tab), which, if you're a true ROH fan, you've definitely watched) Bailey boasts an amazing watch collection.
She shares that she first started building her watch collection at 19 and has a particular fondness for Cartier styles, though her husband is a Rolex guy. (She's trying to draw him to the other side, she explains.) She got her first Cartier watch from an ex and now has a variety of designs from the famous label. "Jewelry is important to me," she says. "It contributes to my personal style because it becomes a part of me...it becomes a part of your soul, who you are."
Aside from her precious watches, Bailey has a few sentimental pieces in her collection, like a Versace bracelet that her daughter gifted her and her first wedding ring, which she said she'll never sell or give away as it was a part of her journey and story. She also has a giant pair of gold hoop earrings with her wedding date on them (10/10/20) and always wears this dainty necklace Bravo (home to the ROH series) gifted her years ago. "I've earned this necklace. A lot of drama came behind this necklace," she says. "I love to incorporate different jewelry in my style when I need it to feel a certain way. It definitely enhances my moods when I wear a certain pieces of jewelry." Check out all of Bailey's beautiful baubles in her video above.
