On a break between performances in New York and Dallas (and on her way home from “a nice little lunch at Lisa Rinna’s house”), Erika Jayne, the singer and jewel of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills plays with five gems that will dominate any selfies you plan on taking this holiday season.

VAN CLEEF & ARPELS, $43,600

“Van Cleef always screams ‘class’ to me. And this earring — she’s a girl who’s paid her dues. She’s very Upper East Side, old dough, but not in a mean way, if you know what I’m saying. These are heavy — but that doesn’t matter. Even if they pull your ears in half, you’re still dripping in rocks.”

“These are for a girl who’s already made it — a real Oscars moment. I cannot believe you let me play with these! Are they Burmese or Kashmir sapphires? It’s important to make the distinction because you never know if these are heat-treated. I have a lot of sapphires in my collection. White diamonds can get boring, so I love a colored stone.”

LOUIS VUITTON, price on request

“These big Louis Vuitton hoops are about having a good time. With a costume earring like this, design and personality are really important. You can get away with being subtle if your stones are fierce and flawless. But when you go costume, you better bring the drama because that’s what it’s all about.”

VINTAGE CARTIER from Belladora, $6,250

“I’m not allowed to buy my own jewelry, but fortunately Tom [Girardi, her husband] has an incredible eye. He’s gotten me vintage Cartier bracelets, some beautiful Boucheron — I’m shocked at some of the shit I have. But Cartier is my favorite. No matter what city I’m in, I’m always trying to run down a new Panthère ring.”

MSGM, $175

“These are big, they’re loud, they’re in-your-face, and they are glamorous. Like, what is this little scarf on the bottom? And I think it’s even more cool that there’s only the scarf on one side. I love costume jewelry, because, listen, you can’t pick a real jewel every day. And these are really dope.”
