Kendall Jenner, seemingly, is someone entrenched high enough in the clouds of fame that anything she can imagine, she can have. And she often does: Coachella weekend one VIP bracelets, a radio talk show, a collection of vintage cars. But as it turns out, she also keeps her eyes on an even bigger prize: Mom Kris’s extensive watch collection. “She has really good watches,” explains Jenner over the phone. “Like, really, really nice watches.” It’s one of the top things she wants to inherit from her Momager. But the 23 year old’s love of jewellery spans far behind Kris’ collection. Since she began working with Tiffany & Co, her current obsession is the brand’s new collection of stackable rings and the stackable luggage collection she was gifted this past Christmas.
In this exclusive interview, the model talks calling dibs on her mom’s good pieces, the kind of ring she hopes she sees when one lucky man eventually drops to one knee, and more.
What made you want to work with Tiffany & Co?
Tiffany’s been a brand that I have loved since I was a baby. I would get gifts from either my mom’s friends or my mom since I was really little. I’ve always loved Tiffany because it truly is a classic jewellery brand. I was always a fan of the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s and Audrey Hepburn. I just like the whole vibe that they have.
What’s one piece of jewellery you can’t leave the house without?
If I’m going to leave the house and feel a bit spare, I’ll usually throw on a pair of earrings. I think that’s the easiest thing to get away with if you don’t want to wear too much. I have a lot of jewellery that I’ve had since I was really young. One of them actually is a Tiffany’s piece. It’s a little silver heart that my mom got me when I was young that I still have.
Do you and Kylie have any matching jewellery? Did you guys ever do BFF bracelets?
Yeah, we definitely did a lot of that. My mom would also dress Kylie and I up as twins when we were younger. My mom would get us a lot of matching stuff. She has boxes of stuff that we had as babies and I’m almost positive my mom would have that somewhere.
Do you have any bracelets from your famous friends or matching bracelets with your other sisters?
Sadly a year or two ago someone broke into my house and stole a lot of my jewelry. I have some of my stuff because it was in a different place in my house during the burglary, but only a couple of things. I think all of that stuff might have been taken. It’s okay. It’s all just material things. The only things I was really upset about was anything sentimental.
Do you want to inherit any jewelry from your mom?
Oh my God, yes. Of course. I think we all kind of call dibs on certain things. I know it’s kind of a weird thing to call dibs on, but my mom’s very giving, and she loves to hand them over to her daughters even when she’s just over things. So we’re all kind of waiting for one day for her to feel generous and be like, “You guys want this stuff?”
Do you have anything you really want to get your hands on?
Shoot, not really that I can think of right now. She has really good watches like, really, really nice watches. I’d want something from her watch game.
What are some of your favorite Tiffany & Co. pieces right now?
I really like the Tiffany T Collection. I think it’s really cute. The rings in particular I love to stack, I think they’re really good simple rings. My sister just got me this Tiffany trunk set. It’s the most amazing Tiffany blue luggage pieces, and they’re all different sizes, so they stack really amazing, and they go all the way up until the size of a jewellery or a makeup bag. Kim got them for Kourtney and I for Christmas.
Are you someone who wants to pick out your engagement ring or do you want to be totally surprised?
I mean, I kind of love the idea of letting the man pick it and having it be that pretty thing that he kind of thought of himself. And having the feeling of like, oh, he made this with me in thought, kind of a thing. I like thinking that just the way it was made reminded him of me. That to me is kind of romantic. But at the same time, I’m the type of person that would give hints, and be like, “I kind of want this.”
You could DM him your potential rings?
