Eight weeks to go before the Olympics and celebs have medal fever. At the recent L.A. premiere of The Craft, medallion necklaces had such stars as Clare Danes and Kathy Najimy looking like winners. Danes picked up hers, an Our Lady of Guadalupe amulet, while filming Romeo and Juliet last winter in Mexico. Najimy’s pendant was a Lebanese religious medal. ”My auntie Alice left it to me,” she says. And actors like Johnny Whitworth, who wore a St. Christopher medal, and Days of Our Lives star Austin Peck, who sported an Arabic coin on his chest, made the trend unisex. ”I’m doing lots of custom coin items,” says Jennifer Kaufman, whose L.A. store sells to such stars as Courteney Cox and Cameron Diaz. ”Jewelry is becoming more intimate. Something with personal meaning will always be a hit.” Whether in gold, silver, or bronze.
