Who's Behind Madonna's New Necklace?

02/24/2007 at 01:30 PM ET

Diamonds may be a girl’s best friend, but this Oscar weekend, some A-listers are snapping up pieces minus the bling– thanks to Kathleen Cavalaro’s hand-made gold jewelry. Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow and Hilary Swank walked away from the Adwil suite yesterday with one-of-a-kind wire-wrapped necklaces that Cavalaro designed especially for them. Madonna received an ornate, asymmetrical Cleopatra Necklace, $850. Swank’s necklace features a freshwater pearl centerpiece surrounded by both wire and chain; Paltrow’s features a handmade hoop wrapped in tiny citrines around a large faceted citrine. Also from Kathleen’s collection, Swank received a pair of Carnelian wire-wrap earrings, $195 (already a favorite of Grey’s Anatomy star Kate Walsh), while Paltrow received a delicate chrysophase necklace. Or if those are a little pricey, pick up the more affordable Sophia Necklace, $175, which has already been seen on stars like Kristin Cavalleri.

Just because a Celeb wears it doesn’t mean it’s cute. This thing is 800 dollars? No offense to the street vendors on Telegraph Ave in Berkeley, CA but that looks like an item I could have purchased there for less than 100 bucks. I don’t particular like the piece but if you do, support your local jewlery makers and you can get something similar for less than a fraction of the price.

Hey KC,

Well said!!! I completely agree with you 100%, especially the bit about supporting your local jewelry makers……..
You know the kind, the artisy store where you walk in and there is a table set-up for “learn how to make your own jewelry….just like Madonna’s!” all for under $50.00.

Make some art, save alittle cash!

Enjoy and Cheers!
