Kate Hudson's Mom Inspired Her Jewelry Line

Kate Hudson remembers admiring an heirloom choker belonging to her mother, Goldie Hawn. “It was one of the first pieces I ever remember my mother wearing,” she tells ELLE, “and it was like, Wow, I hope one day I get to wear jewelry like that.”

In fact she did — Hawn gave Hudson the choker on her 21st birthday — but the piece meant even more: it inspired Hudson’s new jewelry collaboration, CH+KH, a capsule collection for Los Angeles-based jeweler Chrome Hearts. The brand’s co-owner, Laurie Lynn Stark, happens to be one of the actress’s closest friends, so Hudson says working with her was only natural. “It occurred to us, we spend all of this time together — why don’t we make something?” she says.

The result? A line of 18- and 22-karat gold rings, necklaces, bracelets and earrings set with white diamonds, fresh water pearls, green tourmaline, peridot, citrine and aquamarine gemstones. Many of the pieces — more delicate than Chrome Hearts’s heavier gems — reference 1970s vintage pieces that Hudson collects. But they also reflect the tastes of the actress-turned-designer, too.

“We use a lot of aquamarines because Kate loves them,” Stark says. “But to me they also evoke her personality. She’s so open and light.”
