Jessica Simpson adding jewellery line to fashion collection

Jessica Simpson is expanding her fashion empire to include her first jewellery collection.

The blonde beauty has turned her Jessica Simpson Collection company into a billion-dollar firm, encompassing clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories.

Now Simpson is adding jewellery designer to her already-impressive resume with a line called Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.

She tells WWD.com, "This collection has allowed me to create pieces that truly reflect who I am, and that can become a keepsake for a lifetime. The designs are airy and artistic and so easy to wear."

The 31 year old's new range features necklaces, earrings, bracelets and rings made of silver, gold and diamonds. The collection will go on sale in October (11), priced between $79 and $999.
