"The Indian culture there has definitely influenced my personal style. The vibrant colors, bold prints and the jewelry! Oh, the jewelry!" Gabby says of her multitude of accessories. "My best friend jokingly calls me the Sultan of Brunei," she laughs. "Every piece has a special memory and I have to wear them all at once, every day."
"This one was custom made for me by my boyfriend — I described to him what I was looking for and he got it done," Gabby says of the long rock charm necklace (at left). "The large circular initial necklace (right) was made by my friend’s mom who is a jeweler at Scala Jewelry on the Bowery. The sideways cross necklace was another gift from my boyfriend from Phoenix Roze, this amazing jewelry store on Hudson street in the West Village. The diamond pendant is from Tiffany’s — my dad bought it for me when we were in Florida. The horseshoe necklace is from a jeweler in my hometown in Indiana. My mom bought it for me for Christmas because I was obsessed with the necklaces Carrie Bradshaw had from Sex and the City."
