Gabriel & Co. Debuts Amavida Jewelry Collection

08 april 2014

Gabriel & Co. launched its Amavida bridal jewelry collection in March, which is described as a fashion-forward assortment of engagement rings and fine jewelry, including earrings, bracelets and necklaces. Amavida is made with platinum, 18-karat gold, diamonds and precious gemstones, Rapaport reports.
Meaning “love for life” in Latin, Amavida will be available shortly at retail counters in fine jewelry boutiques. Retail prices for the settings begin at $2,500.
“I designed Amavida for passionate, confident and stylish women who appreciate the finer things in life. Amavida is more than just a symbol of an eternal bond shared between two people, it is a reflection of the lifestyle they create together and the many moments that make up a lifetime,” said designer Dominick Gabriel.  
The collection offers a diverse range of designs that were created for younger brides who may favor delicate, vintage inspired details as well as styles for the established woman, who might prefer larger stones with larger settings that have more modern, clean lines.
Additionally, Amavida includes a selection of statement earrings, layering and pendant necklaces, bangles and bracelets. Gabriel's signature style incorporates subtle details such as engraving a ring’s shoulder or sprinkling hidden “peek-a-boo” diamonds strategically in places that only the wearer can see.
