Gabriele Frantzen Costume Jewelry

by Charlotte Olsson Bauer

Gabriele Frantzen is one of the jewelry industry's next superstars and has been dubbed as one to watch by the fashion elite! Her unique designs are bold, chunky yet intricately linked together and encrusted in stunning gems in warm, rich hues from orange to ocean blue.

Her pieces evoke a multitude of emotions and are definitely not made for those among us with a love for simple, clean lines but for those who like to be a little different - feminine yet bold, all rolled into one.

Gabriele began her career in Munich with Frantzen&Frantzen and then opened a distribution agency Best of 19, which she still runs today. Along side that, she is also brand ambassador for brands like Philip Lim. In 2009 she started her own line of unique costume jewelry and within one year had acquired a showroom in New York City, and success soon followed. Her line was quickly snapped up by top retailers around the world including, Harvey Nichols in London and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York.

A self taught designer, she is not afraid to let her unique sense of style lead the way. She has a commendable way of being able to combine trends, mix the feminine with the bold, industrial with the delicate and create eye catching pieces again and again.  Quirky yet sophisticated, the odd piece has certainly been added to my wish list!! #StyleFleur
