I knew it as soon as I saw Angie step onto the red carpet. I knew it!
The race to be the first to sell the knock-off of Angie's ginormous emerald earrings is ... HSN's Roberta Chiarella!
You can check out the Angie earrings and the coordinating gargantuan ring on Roberta Chiarella's site. Roberta's Academy Award Collection was featured on the Today Show and US weekly, but so far not on HSN. I don't know what's up with that other than the fact that they are already having trouble keeping up with the demand.
According to Roberta's blog, Not Bad, For a Girl from Queens, "We've been working overtime in the studio, shipping out our "angie" earrings and rings as fast as the factory gets them here from Rhode Island. Bob is doing such a great job with these beautiful swarovski crystals! Who would have thought these items would be so popular, but considering the images we have of Angelina Jolie at the Academy Awards, I am not surprised."
Where do all these non-Oscar-attending ladies wear these earrings???
