RAPAPORT... Former supermodel Kathy Ireland has entered the diamond jewelry market, a journey she recounts in an exclusive interview with Rapaport Magazine.

Ireland, famous for her iconic appearances on the cover of Sports Illustrated: Swimsuit Edition, found similar success in the business world through her holding company, kathy ireland Worldwide (kiWW). Her dealings span a diverse range of industries, including fashion, home furniture and weddings.

In her interview, published in the redesigned August issue of Rapaport Magazine, Ireland relates how she built a career on “finding solutions” for everyday people. To that end, she launched the Diamonds by Kathy Ireland collection at JCK Las Vegas in June.

The idea of the collection is to create the look of a larger solitaire by using a cluster of smaller stones, enabling consumers to buy at lower price points than a solitaire that size would fetch, she explains.

“Every girl deserves a big diamond,” Ireland says. “Our goal is to present beautiful jewelry at affordable prices.”
