Gara Post started making her own jewelry because she wanted something different. She craved pieces that captured her personal sense of style, feminine, eclectic and heavily influenced by her upbringing in New York. Gara developed her sense of chic from an innate passion for the quality and hand of vintage jewelry she found in dusty shops and ramshackle flea markets, once the hub of creativity on the island of Manhattan.
Gara softened her approach to design with a move to Los Angeles, dusting her palette with a laid back and sun drenched patina. The result is Gara Danielle Jewelry, a fusion east coast precision and refinement with the ease and natural beauty of the west.
In 2008 she launched Gara Danielle Fine Jewelry, a collection of post modern estate pieces, made from 18KT yellow and oxidized gold, mixed with rose cut diamonds of varying hue, including cognac and black. The fashion line consists of 14KT gold-filled, sterling silver, mixed metal overlay (gunmetal, rose gold, yellow gold, and rhodium), all mixed with semi-precious stones including but not limited to; amethyst, natural carnelian, chrysophrase, quartz, and chalcedony.
Her jewelry has been continuously featured in magazines such as In Style, Lucky, Vogue, Marie Claire, US Weekly, and Harper’s Bazaar, perfectly punctuating editorial under the discerning eye of noted stylists; George Cortina, Jessica Paster, Lori Goldstein, and MAUDE (Merrit Elliot/Emily Current).
Celebrity clientele includes Angelina Jolie, Gwenyth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Sarah Jessica Parker, Halle Berry, Cameron Diaz, Scarlet Johansen, Liv Tyler, Charlize Theron, and Uma Thurman- each woman the beneficiary of custom pieces.
The collection can be found at an eclectic mix of retail outlets including Ikram, Chicago and Broken English, Los Angeles.
