We may not be able to get our hands on the minimalist Donna Karan dress that Cameron Diaz sports on our May cover, but her gorgeous gilded jewelry by Jennifer Zeuner is another story. Our style director Melissa Rubini layered Zeuner’s “Penelope” bar necklace ($198) over the longer “Paloma” lariat necklace ($253) and added the “Sahara” bangle to finish off the simple, yet modern look (that also included a Jennifer Fisher bracelet, and rings by Bijules and Dailylook).
It turns out that Diaz, who naturally loved the Jennifer Zeuner pieces, has an even cooler connection to the designer than just our cover. “Two weeks after I sold my very first items to a boutique in South Beach, I got a call that Cameron had stopped in and purchased three necklaces,” Zeuner told InStyle.com. Flash forward 10 years, and the two got a chance to chat face-to-face when they ran into each other at Barneys New York where Diaz was having lunch. “I had a feeling she would enjoy knowing that she unintentionally encouraged me to pursue my dream to be a jewelry designer. And of course, I was right! She was so excited.” We think it’s a match made in accessory heaven.
