Early life

Meyer is the daughter of Ronald Meyer, who currently serves as the Vice Chairman of NBCUniversal and was previously the President and CEO of Universal Studios, and his first wife, Ellen. Her stepfather, from her mother's re-marriage, is Rabbi David Baron (head of the Temple Shalom for the Arts),[1] and her stepmother, from her father's re-marriage, is Kelly Chapman. She got her start in jewelry making alongside her grandmother, Edith Meyer, who taught her the basics of making enamel jewelry when she was just six years old.[2]

As a young adult, Meyer studied Ralph Lauren.

Meyer returned to her jewelry making roots in 2004 when, frustrated by a search for a leaf charm for a necklace, she decided to make her own. After taking several jewelry making classes and consulting with other jewelers, Meyer designed her trademark leaf-shaped 18-karat gold charm, which to her represents "turn[ing] over a new leaf".[3] Though Meyer has extensive Hollywood connections—her father is Universal Studios President Ron Meyer; her husband is actor Tobey Maguire—her jewelry made its national debut when a stylist picked out one of Meyer's leaf pendants for Jennifer Aniston to wear in The Break-Up. The exposure led to Meyer founding her own company, Jennifer Meyer Jewelry, and her line of rings, charms, pendants, and necklaces is distributed through such luxury stores as Barneys New York, Roseark in Los Angeles, California, and Maxfield in Beverly Hills, California.[2]

She was named "2007 Jeweler of the Year" in the Us Magazine "Hot Hollywood Style" issue.[4] Her heart-shaped locket adorns the neck of Kirsten Dunst's character Mary Jane Watson as a gift from her boyfriend Peter Parker (Tobey Maguire) in Spider-Man 3.[5]

Personal life

Meyer met Tobey Maguire in 2003 while Maguire was shooting the movie Seabiscuit at Universal Studios, and became engaged in April 2006. Their daughter Ruby Sweetheart Maguire was born November 10, 2006.[6] Ruby's middle name comes from a childhood nickname of Meyer's given to her by her grandmother, who died a few months before Ruby's birth. Meyer and Maguire married on September 3, 2007, in Kona, Hawaii.[7] Their second child, son Otis Tobias Maguire, was born on May 8, 2009.

Meyer is Jewish and occasionally wears a Kabbalah bracelet placed on her "as a protection" by a friend of hers.[2]

Meyer and Maguire are both Los Angeles Lakers fans and can frequently be seen courtside at Lakers home games.
