As most of us know by now, comedienne Joan Rivers died last week at 81 years old. We wanted to take a moment to highlight her jewelry line and the personality behind it.
Joan Rivers, the entertainer, seemed to spend as much time on the QVC home shopping channel as she did telling jokes and critiquing celebrity fashion. For years, she ceaselessly hawked her line of jewelry, clothing and beauty products on television.
It worked. In 24 years of appearances on the channel, she managed to sell over $1 billion in merchandise, according to QVC.
Her big-sellers included the Pave Crystal Lovebirds Brooch, (shown below) for $150 and the Starlet Style 20 necklace (also shown below) for $112. Shoppers – or at least those claiming to be – inevitably left positive comment on the website about her products. For example, the necklace garnered a 4.8 out of 5 rating, including 98 five-star reviews.
