At Chit Chat Cafe Live, Lisa, Nancy, and Betty Anne are excited to talk to Melania about these favorite pieces from her collection:
Island Watch (Palm Beach Collection): Inspired by the chic and vibrant Palm Beach Island, FL...this watch is the perfect everyday must have. While shopping around the island that I consider to be my second home, I always need something that is elegant and fun to wear. The circle watch face is meant to represent the feeling of being on Palm Beach Island, where beach chic meets glamour.
Engagement Ring (Paris Collection): This piece is one that is close to my heart that I couldn’t wait to share with all of you! Modeled perfectly after the beautiful engagement ring my husband gave to me when he asked me to marry him. It was one of the happiest days of my life and I am so excited to offer you again something inspired from my jewelry box. It is beautifully cut and sparkles just like mine!
The Eiffel Tower Watch (Paris Collection): The inspiration for this timepiece came to me while look at the magnificent and intricate architecture of the Eiffel Tower. With its crisscrossing beams it stands strong, and bold, but has a gentle beauty to it. Its metal sparkles in the lights of the city much like this timepiece will as you wear it.
The Pyramid Watch (Paris Collection): Much like the intricate glass pyramid shapes to the sculpture outside of the Louvre Museum in Paris, this watch has beauty and uniqueness all over it. Each of the small pieces were specifically placed to give the watch depth and prominence. They are slightly raised to really catch the eye and glistens just like the sun hitting the glass of the Pyramid.
Barron’s Bracelet (Paris Collection): This is one that you all love and keep asking for again and again. Its one that I also love very much too! The cut and design is inspired by the bracelet that I received from my husband when our beautiful boy Barron was born. It symbolizes the wonderful gift of being a mommy. This stylish sparkler is perfect for a night out on the town. Its delicate yet fashionable and makes a great gift for someone you love.

It truly is a magnificent piece of architecture and the long, strong yet delicate tassels of this necklace represent the same beauty that is found in the building.” We also can't wait to Mrs. Post Ring, and everyone at Chit Chat Cafe Live is thrilled to hear Melania tell us, “Before my husband purchased our Palm Beach home, Mar-A-Lago, it was once owned by the fabulously elegant Mrs. Marjorie Marriwheather Post.
