Gadbois Jewelry embraces their tagline of Timeless Elegance, by designing pieces of jewelry that are for everyday wear. Gadbois Jewelry established by a mother-daughter team was formed in 2014 by Frances Gadbois and daughter, Charlotte. This dynamic duo is one of the many reasons my mother and I love this jewelry company. They share the same qualities, values, and everlasting love that we want to instill in our store. Frances & Charlotte have combined their love of color and sophisticated design expertise to create a fresh and vibrant luxury jewelry line.
"I would like to think of Sloane Street as the black handbag of any woman's closet. Their "go to" pieces they're easy, wearable, comfortable, and versatile."
Two Brands One Love
Gadbois Jewelry is composed of two brands, Sloane Street and Charlize Gadbois, that cohesively go together. Both jewelry brands incorporate their signature textured strie finish. The strie finish, hand etched by a master jeweler, can be found in each and every piece of jewelry. Some of their jewelry can take up to two days to be completed! Talk about a labor of LOVE! I can hear you now- "What is the difference in the brands, Torri?" So glad you asked!
Sloane Street is the foundation of the Gadbois Jewelry company. Made of 18k white & yellow gold, Sloane Street is loaded with one-of-a-kind stones. Charlotte & Frances travel the world in search of the rarest stones to be the headliner of their elegant collections. One of my personal favorite stones that they include in their jewelry is the electrifying green/blue Paraiba. (I could go on and on about this stone, but I'll save that for another post). Frances’ European heritage and architecture appreciation inspire many of her designs. God gifted Frances with an authentic talent of design that has made her one of the top fine jewelry designers in the industry. The icing on the cake for the Sloane Street brand is that Frances specializes in custom design. She believes that "jewelry has the power to recover memories you never knew you had." If you have a piece of jewelry that you never wear, Frances wants to work with you to craft something updated that you will want to wear, while still keeping the sentimental value. I have had the pleasure of watching Frances sketch, and it is truly something remarkable.
Like any great entrepreneurs, Frances and Charlotte noticed a gap in the jewelry market that left out young female girl bosses. Charlotte wanted to create pieces of jewelry that would compliment their confidence, so Charlize was born! Charlotte believes in "empowering each other to build an empire, with an armor of jewelry that empowers other women." Each of the pieces of Charlize jewelry is crafted with attention to detail by the same team as Sloane Street. All of Charlize jewelry is made of sterling silver. The Charlize brand can be broken down into two lines, two-toned and gold-plated. The two-toned jewelry is made from solid 18k yellow gold and sterling silver. The gold-plated collection is made using the finest quality of sterling silver, and they use three microns of 18k yellow and rose gold plate. Every diamond Charlize uses is triple sifted and inspected by the state of the art DeBeers diamond quality sorting machine. The icing on the cake for Charlize is that they manufacture with high-quality materials and attention to detail as the elite jewelry lines, but with a fashion jewelry price! They also believe in their product so strongly that if the gold plating ever begins to show signs of wear and tear, they will repair it free of charge.
If I haven't won your love for this brand yet, just wait! Gadbois Jewelry was founded as a result of a creative calling from within, which blossomed a deep drive to give back. After losing a mother and grandmother to the awful disease of Alzheimer's, Frances and Charlotte Gadbois vowed that in the formation of Gadbois Jewelry, they would never lose perspective of what was important to them. Gadbois Jewelry has partnered with two incredible organizations, Alzheimer's Research and CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates). Sloane Street has designed two exclusive collections that give 100% of the profits from each piece sold back to its represented cause. I was thrilled to learn about their partnership with CASA. CASA holds a special place in my heart because it was my sorority's philanthropy in college.
These two lovely ladies are paving the way in the jewelry world. Gadbois jewelry not only has high standards for quality and classic designs but believes in empowering strong women that leave a legacy. They genuinely embody their tagline timeless elegance.
