Girl's Best Friend Lorraine Schwartz

Lorraine Schwartz is a well-known American jeweler who helps super-celebrities sculpt their signature style.She’s made house calls to Elizabeth Taylor and has fashioned diamond tiaras for royalty. Years in the jewelry design business, Schwartz caught the eye of the Hollywood A-list crowd when Halle Berry chose one of Schwartz’s designs at the Golden Globe awards in 2002.

Three generations in Schwartz's family have worked in Manhattan’s diamond trade, she tells NPR. And she’s not really sure what her grandfather would think of her: some rap stars have given her the moniker, “Queen of Bling.”
