Carol Brodie and her dream job

Of course, everyone loves their work in the jewelry and gems industries. But how many in the industry can lay claim to—and be recognized for—having their dream job?

Carol Brodie can.

Brodie, communications director for Harry Winston, is featured in the June issue of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine as having one of seven dream jobs in the country.

The cover story describes Brodie’s work as making sure “Harry Winston jewelry bedecks celebrity bosoms, ears, and wrists, and travels the requisite red carpets. She frequents A-list parties on both coasts, dishes about diamonds on TV, and comes to work every day dripping with company rocks.”

In addition, the story says, she is “expected to put the glitter on the glitterati by lending jewelry to the stars on movie sets and TV shows and at award ceremonies.”

“I wanted a TV career and had experience working with celebrities and fashion designers,” said Brodie, in discussing why she accepted the position at Harry Winston seven years ago.

Playing host to celebrities, attending A-list parties, having access to some of the most beautiful jewelry in the world. Living the dream.
