Jewelry designer Simone I. Smith and her husband legendary emcee television star of NCIS: Los Angeles LL Cool J made an appearence to Macy’s Fine Jewelry department at the Cross County Shopping Center for a dazzling jewelry show, Saturday. Fans and customers alike filled the Main Floor of Macy’s Fine Jewelry department to meet Simone I. Smith and LL Cool J as they showcased Simone’s latest collection of SIS by Simone I. Smith earrings, bracelets, and pendants.
Each piece embodies strength, integrity and style, and is available in 18K gold, platinum or rose gold over sterling silver.
The first 200 customers who made any SIS purchase were given the opportunity to meet the jewelry designer and LL in person and have their picture taken with the couple. Simone, a 10 cancer survivor, tells BW $1 of every purchase will go towards supporting the American Cancer Society.
In 2004, Simone was diagnosed with stage III chondorosarcoma- a rare form of cancer. Her treatment required an invasive surgery that altered the appearance of her lollipop tattoo. “It literally looks like someone took a bite out of it,” says Simone. Inspired by her experience, the lollipop now represents Simone’s journey to getting well and staying well, and has sparked a desire to help other cancer survivors.
LL who can be seen on NCIS: Los Angeles, Monday nights 10PM/ 9C Monday nights shares with BW that he is currently working on his next album, GOAT 2.
