Iconic singer LL Cool J's wife Simone Smith recently flaunted her attractive dressing rings and bracelets as she shared a touching post, alongside a picture of her hands.
In the United States, so much is going on right now, amidst the novel coronavirus pandemic, which has pushed the death toll to over 100,000.
On Monday, a Minneapolis man, George Floyd, died as a result of high handedness by four police officers, which sparked massive protests nationwide.
Reflecting on everything going on, award-winning rapper LL Cool J's wife Simone Smith posted a picture with an apt but inspiring message that summed up the thoughts of many, given the reactions in her comments section.
In the picture, the jewelry designer had her hands clasped together as she flaunted her fancy rings and bracelets. She also showed off her flamboyant locks and glittery nail extensions. While sharing the picture, she wrote:
"Even in this time we are still BLESSED and the days ahead are bright! @simoneismithjewelry."
Simone wore a neon green top in the picture, and she has her own jewelry store that designs most of the accessories she and her husband wear.
In 2018, award-winning singer Mary J Blige, a known lover of big hoop earrings, teamed up with Simon Smith to launch a new jewelry line, "Sister Love."
Simone was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer and had to undergo invasive surgery.
The hot new jewelry line debuted on July 6, 2018, at the Essence Fest, with the launch of the "Queen Hoop Earrings." The earrings cost a princely $199.99.
Simone Smith and Mary J Blige have been friends for many years and have supported each other through the years, so working together on this project wasn't so difficult. Speaking about their friendship, Simone said:
"We support each other in everything we do, and in the ways we help each other grow from our individual strengths..."
Simone and LL Cool J, whose real name is James Todd Smith, met in 1987 and later got married in 1995.
The couple share four children, son Najee Laurent Todd Eugene Smith, 31, and daughters Italia Anita Maria Smith, 29, Samaria Leah Wisdom Smith, 25, and Nina Simone Smith, 20.
In 2004, Simone was diagnosed with a rare type of bone cancer and had to undergo invasive surgery, which was successful, but it took her almost three years to learn how to walk again.
Simone and LL Cool J are one of Hollywood's longest-running couples, and the mother of four has admitted that putting God first has been key to their successful marriage.
