Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Erika Jayne was flaunting her jewelry for the world to see — only months before her husband Tom Girardi was accused of buying expensive earrings for her with his client’s money.
A 2020 video of the Bravo star being interviewed by Marie Clarie has resurfaced days after the Bravo star was hit with new legal docs.
Jayne appeared in the magazine’s video series Precious Metals. She showed off various pieces from her collection. “I’ve always like jewelry,” the RHOBH star explained.
She said her collection started when she was 30 when her husband Tom started gifting her pieces. In the 3-minute clip, Jayne showed off a pair of diamond Cartier hoops that her husband gifted her.
Jayne then displayed a pair of diamond earrings — that appear to be the set at the center of the current legal war — that she said were stolen and replaced.
Another item she pulled out of her vault to brag about was a $168k Panthère de Cartier ring — that her husband bought for her.
The video wouldn’t be a problem if Girardi isn’t accused of buying earrings for Jayne with his client’s cash.

As RadarOnline.com first reported, the trustee presiding over the bankruptcy for Girardi’s law firm is demanding Jayne hand over earrings worth an estimated $1.4 million.
The firm owes around $101 million to various creditors. Girardi is accused of running his law firm like a Ponzi scheme. Many former clients claim he failed to pay them money owed on settlements.
The trustee — who was put in place by the court to take over control of Girardi’s finances — claims bank statements show Girardi used his client’s money to buy Jayne a $750k pair of earrings in 2007. The problem is the jewelry was purchased with client’s money.
“Erika is completely innocent,” her attorney wrote. “Not even the trustee alleges that Erika knew the source of funds that her wealthy husband used to buy her a gift of earrings 15 years ago (which replaced a prior set of earrings bought years prior to that)."
The judge has yet to rule.
