SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- JewelMint introduces Studio Series, an ongoing collaboration program featuring exclusive jewelry collections designed by some of fashion's most coveted names at JewelMint's accessible price point. The limited edition collections are available only at JewelMint.com.
Studio Series debuts with Giles & Brother x JewelMint, an exclusive collection by CFDA award winning designer Philip Crangi of Giles & Brother and Philip Crangi Jewelry.
Philip Crangi commented, "This collaboration with JewelMint is really interesting because it allows me to open Giles & Brother to a broader audience; an audience that may not have known they were Giles & Brother women. I think the pieces I created seamlessly merge the attitudes of JewelMint and Giles & Brother and convey the sort of realness we strive for every day."
The G&BxJM collection includes necklaces, bracelets, a ring and a pair of earrings, that retail from $30 to $90. The designs, in finishes of rose gold, antiqued brass and rhodium, some incorporating leather and dark crystals, reflect Crangi's signature style blending both tough and delicate elements. The collection has two themes; one more tribal with iconic spear shapes and hammered textures and the other originally inspired by an equestrian bit, which Crangi then simplified into a more abstract utilitarian shape with smooth finishes.
BeachMint CEO, Josh Berman, stated, "JewelMint has always been about bringing our members a fashion forward aesthetic at an accessible price point, and we couldn't have found a better designer than Philip and Giles & Brother to launch our Studio Series. We are thrilled to be introducing our community to Philip's work and look forward to continuing the series with many talented designers."
