The world may know her as the better half of iconic entertainer LL Cool J, but Simone I. Smith has made a name for herself as an inspirational jewelry designer after having battled a debilitating cancer diagnosis prior to the pandemic that left the Mama Said Knock You Out rapper’s wife fighting to stand on her own two feet.

See how her signature lollipop jewelry line was inspired by her illness and shop the Simone I. Smith collection today in the video below

Since Mrs. Smith’s harrowing recovery, she has went on to launch a successful the Sister Love collection with her friend, the Queen of Hip-Hop Soul Mary J. Blige and the Black Love collection in partnership with Color of Change.

“Black love is unity. Black love is freedom. Black love is God’s love,” says Smith.
