Naming anything — from your pet to your company to your future babies — can be a harrowing task. But luckily for Kristin Cavallari, the TV star-turned-businesswoman had a little help when picking out the moniker for her first-ever solo jewelry line.
Given the oh-so-chic name of Uncommon James, Kristin joked to PeopleStyle that her husband, former Chicago Bears quarterback Jay Cutler, “would kill me if I didn’t give him credit for the ‘uncommon’ part.”
She told the mag,
She also mentioned that a plain-and-simple ‘James’ jewelry line would’ve been “impossible to patent.”
Gotta give credit where credit’s due!
While Kristin’s more than dipped her toe in the designer pool, having a shoe line with Chinese Laundry and also, at one point, a joint jewelry line, Emerald Duv, with friend Chelsea Bulte, this is her first solo foray into the design world. Which means that she’ll be integral in every part of the business, from design decisions to social media — the whole shebang!
“I really wanted to do a line that was really personal and a true reflection of my style, and I wanted to be really involved,” Cavallari told PeopleStyle. “I wanted to have a hand in every facet of the company.”
And now that Uncommon James has launched (and already acquired more than 50K Instagram followers, not too shabby!), Kristin is even more thrilled than ever that folks are flocking to her jewelry line.
We’re on cloud nine too…partially because we’re happy for you, Kristin, but mostly because we can’t wait to get our hands on your gorgeous goods!
