MEET THE PANELISTS
MARLA AARON | Jewelry Designer
Marla Aaron launched her eponymous collection in 2013 when her combined obsessions with bridges, hardware and jewelry could no longer be ignored. Marla’s work is sold in select retailers, with customers throughout the world buying her work at www.marlaaaron.com. What began with one lock is now an entire collection designed to be worn in infinite ways and used as “jewel tools” with individuals’ own collections—to redefine the “precious” in jewelry with individuality.
JENNIFER GANDIA | co-owner of Greenwich St. Jewelers
After forging her path in fashion marketing, Gandia, along with her sister, Christina Gandia-Gambale, reinvented their family business, Greenwich St. Jewelers, in 2004, creating a modern jewelry emporium with a contemporary store environment.
