Last week I had the pleasure of attending the HSN accessories preview event held at their headquarters in NYC, and meeting some of the fabulous faces behind the brands, which I love! One of the collections that caught my eyes was AKKAD jewelry, and luckily the creator himself Ahmed Akkad was on hand to give me a short story about his gorgeous pieces. Akkad has been a designer for over 20 years and his work spans from fashion, jewelry, fabric, home, accessories, furniture, interiors to decorative objects. The AKKAD Collection, available exclusively for HSN, is an affordable price version of his main line. I was mesmorized by the statement rings (which look so much better in person, in my opinion). I think they have that unique "it" look that I'm often looking for in accessories, not to mention you'd never be able to tell their low price... Check out my favorite - Crystal North South Ring (on the left), coming to HSN/HSN.com in August!
