Q. Stars always seem to have the coolest jewelry. Which brands are big with celebs?

A. Celebs have their pick of West Coast-based brands, but two of the most popular are Jennifer Meyer and Cathy Waterman. Both are talented, stylish designers, not to mention well-connected -- Meyer is married to actor Toby Maguire, and Waterman has close friendships with many actresses, including Jamie Lee Curtis.

Aside from those, big-name retailers like Cartier and Van Cleef & Arpels continue to dress actresses for appearances and big events. Blake Lively recently wore a butterfly pendant from Van Cleef & Arpels while filming the upcoming season of "Gossip Girl."
