Ivanka Trump’s brand took a one-two punch over the weekend with a “Complicit” perfume sketch on “Saturday Night Live” and news her fine jewelry line is being shut down.
“Abigail Klem, president of the first daughter’s brand of companies, confirmed to The New York Times Monday that Ivanka Trump Fine Jewelry is being discontinued,” CNN reports. “Instead, the company will focus its efforts on costume jewelry, with a more accessible price point.”
In a statement to the Times, Klem didn’t mention Neiman Marcus, “or any of the other retailers that had recently backed away from carrying Ms. Trump’s increasingly politicized products. The decision to discontinue Ms. Trump’s fine jewelry line was reported on Friday by Vanity Fair.”
CNN added: “The fine jewelry line, whose website featured black and white portraits of Trump modeling her pieces, encompassed rings, bracelets, pendants, earrings and necklaces. On the high-end is a woven diamond necklace for $19,500, and the lower side, a simple rose gold ring with a price tag of $940.
“Ivanka herself often wears the $2,900 ‘Patras’ studs, but who can forget the $10,800 bracelet debacle from November?” when After Trump wore her jewelry during a “60 Minutes” interview on CBS.
