CEDRICK TRADES DOWN: Los Angeles-based jeweler Cedrick Jihanian — a favorite of Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, Mariah Carey and Felicity Huffman — has added lower-price styles to his 140-piece signature collection, sold exclusively at Saks Fifth Avenue. The line, which used to hover around $14,000 retail, now includes pieces starting at $4,000, such as gold and diamond hoop earrings. “I wanted more women to be able to wear my jewelry,” said the Paris native. “I grew up looking in the windows at the [jewelry stores on the] Place Vendôme, and I always wanted to design beautiful things.”
At 17, Jihanian enrolled in the Ecole de Rue du Louvres, then was hired at Van Cleef & Arpels, followed by Boucheron and Cartier. He moved to Los Angeles 15 years ago to start his own line, which is inspired by French gardens, Greek motifs and lace. The four groups in the collection — Signature, Envy, Heiress and Sparta — are made from 18-karat yellow gold, diamonds and gemstones.
