If there’s one thing Honey Minx designer and style maven Nicole Richie loves more than her clothes, it’s her costume jewelry.

“Jewelry, I think, is really fun, especially costume jewelry. I mean, I’ve been wearing costume jewelry for as long as I can remember,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle. The fashionista says she prefers it over fine jewelry because of its versatility when it comes to styling an outfit. “If you’re somebody who layers like me, I think it always just adds a nice extra layer to a look that you are already doing.”

As part of Richie’s Honey Minx collection, the designer made sure to include a wide-ranging collection of costume jewelry, including earrings, rings, necklaces and bracelets. She admits she loves baubles so much, she can count on her secret stash in her purse if she needs a last-minute piece to layer on. “I wear a ton of jewelry, so yes, I always have jewelry at the bottom of my bag,” she says.
