Kim Kardashian thinks of herself as "the glitzy, glam one" among her famous sisters.

The reality star turned fashion personality introduced her newest collection -- Kim Kardashian for bebe jewelry -- midday Tuesday at the company's flagship on lower Broadway in Manhattan to a crowd of several hundred who waited in line under rain-threatening skies.

"My sisters and I design clothes for bebe, but I wanted to branch off and do something on my own," she told StyleList. "I travel the world and always rip out tears[heets] and find beauty and jewelry inspirations. I took these really cool designs and made them wearable."

The jewelry is just what you'd expect from the glam Kardashian -- lots of sparkle, lots of jewels and not an understated piece in the bunch. Prices for the collection of rings, bracelets, pendants and earrings range from $24 to $98.

Kardashian, who has been working with bebe for five seasons, said the relationship will come to an end sooner than later (the Kardashians have already branched off with a QVC collection), but working with the contemporary retail chain has proved educational.

"At one point, all of my sisters and I have worked as stylists," she said, adding, "This deal with bebe has really awakened my designer self."
