The Family Jewelers

Meet two designers with Hollywood pedigrees

Jennifer Meyer

Lineage Daughter of Ron Meyer, NBC Universal’s president and chief operating officer

Inspiration “I love movies, but it’s more the people like Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn or Grace Kelley that inspire me.”

Style Yellow and rose 18-karat gold nature-inspired shapes such as leaves, acorns, primitive discs and wishbones. Some pieces are accented with rubies, diamonds and turquoise.

First Break Meyer worked in fashion PR with designers Giorgio Armani and Ralph Lauren. “I literally knocked on downtown jewelers’ doors to learn this process.”

Screen Time Her distinctive leaf designs were spotted on Jennifer Aniston in “The Break-Up.” “I never thought I would be in the film industry,” says Meyer. “I always wanted to do fashion.”

Next Up Look for her dainty gold heart locket on Kirsten Dunst in “Spider-Man 3,” which stars Meyer’s fiance, Tobey Maguire. In the meantime, find her designs at West Hollywood’s Kaviar and Kind ($300 to $11,000, Kaviarkind.com) or Maxfield on Robertson Boulevard.

Liz Goldwyn

Lineage Samuel Goldwyn’s granddaughter

Inspiration History, science and natural elements. “My dad was really into Fellini films when I was little,” says Goldwyn. “He would show me ‘Roma’ or ‘8 ½’ and I remember the costume design.” Her love of costumes also led her to direct the HBO documentary “Pretty Things,” which examines the golden age of burlesque.

Style Unique, one-of-a-kind necklaces and earrings made from mined copper and accented with geodes, arrowheads, enamel and found links. “I have a copper nugget necklace that is inspired by the phrase, ‘worth your weight in gold.’ ”

First Break Goldwyn was asked to curate a Chinatown art show and added her own antique-style charm bracelets with gold-painted seashells. “I put them on display as art work,” she says. “Shockingly, people bought them.” Goldwyn’s background includes stints at French Vogue and Sotheby’s.

Screen Time Annette Bening will be spotted in one of her designs in “Running with Scissors.”

Next Up A possible partnership with a fashion house for her jewelry collection, a book about burlesque history for Regan Books and a novel. Her jewelry ($600 to $6,500) sells at Barneys New York in Beverly Hills and Manhattan, as well as Kaviar and Kind.
