The Lariat Patrol

Most jewelers probably know that the lariat necklace is the hottest thing in jewelry, but the style may get a boost. Enormously popular People magazine noted the trend in its May 7 issue. A full page of pictures of celebrities wearing the diminutive chains is accompanied by an article in which Hollywood jeweler Cathy Carmendy says lariats are fun and can be worn with anything.

Pictured wearing lariats are Nicole Kidman, Helen Hunt, Marg Helgenberger, Angie Harmon, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Lara Flynn Boyle and Charlize Theron.
