THE red carpet at the 50th Annual Grammy Awards threw into sharp relief just how safe female musicians are required to play it these days. The steady stream of jewel-toned gowns, softly waved tresses and unremarkable diamond baubles was eerily similar to the red carpet scene at the Screen Actors Guild Awards a few weeks ago. Since when did pop and rock stars start dressing like actresses?

Back in Hollywood's heyday, when glamour was part of the job description, leading ladies dripped with precious gems and 18-karat gold. Unlike some at this year's Oscar ceremony who topped off a Gap T-shirt or Armani gown with borrowed rocks from Van Cleef & Arpels or Harry Winston, these ladies owned. So when the jewelry from the estates of four former Hollywood stars goes on the Christie's auction block Oct. 3, more than diamonds and gold will be up for sale to the highest bidder.

Mae West was the genuine article--even if not all her diamonds were real. Such were my thoughts as Joe Gold and I, both longtime friends of Mae's, went over the jewelry and memorabilia that her longtime companion Charles Krauser had stored after her death in 1980 at 87. Krauser, who died last year at 76, and Gold, founder of Gold's and World gyms, were in Mae's fabled muscle man chorus line in her '50s nightclub act. "Goodness, what diamonds!

When it came to Jessica Chastain's hair for the Golden Globes, it was all about highlighting her vintage diamond Bvlgari necklace. "Jessica wanted her hair off of her face and [wanted it] wavy," said her hair stylist, Oribe. Not surprisingly, Oribe used products from his eponymous line to achieve Chastain's hairdo. He started by blowing out her hair with his Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse for texture and movement, and then added Thick Dry Finishing Spray for fullness. Once the hair was smooth, he used his Soft Lacquer Heat Styling Spray and curled sections of Chastain's hair with a 2-inch curling iron, for waves that looked soft yet would last throughout the night.

Goodwin, who was dressed in a dark gray jacket and had brown-rimmed glasses perched low on his nose, showed no reaction as Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge Teri Schwartz sentenced him. A jury in the same Pasadena courthouse had convicted him Jan.

When a woman wears jewelry by Brian Reichenberg, she usually doesn't bandy his name about. "She might tell a couple of friends, but that's about it," boasts the former gem salesman, who specializes in fake diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds. People who want copies of real baubles (their own or someone else's) have been known to arrive at Reichenberg's Beverly Boulevard shop disguised in large hats, sunglasses and using pseudonyms, he says. Other clients summon him on the q.t.

Dana Shanler hated borrowing her mother's jewelry for special occasions. So she did what was once considered unthinkable: She bought an expensive diamond necklace for herself. "I knew I could afford it, and I decided that I could buy it for myself if I really wanted it," said the 34-year-old attorney. "Now, every time I wear it I get a real charge out of it." Jewelry isn't just the gift of love anymore.

The Swiss branch of the famed art auction house Sotheby's sued palimony lawyer Marvin Mitchelson Thursday, claiming that he failed to pay $1.1 million he owes for Cartier jewelry that belonged to the Duchess of Windsor. The flamboyant Mitchelson purchased the jewelry at a Sotheby's S.A. Geneve auction last April 2 and 3 at the Hotel Beau-Rivage in Geneva, Switzerland, according to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. Mitchelson reportedly agreed to pay 1.
