Glitterati: Gas Bijoux
Has anyone else been eyeing Eva Longoria's exotic jewelry lately? I did a little digging to find she has recently taken multiple trips to Gas Bijoux - a French jewelry house originally from the south of France. Fabulous.
Andre Gas, designer and founder of Gas Bijoux, was born in Marseille in the South of France. At the age of 16 he studied at the famed Beaux Arts and learned the business of costume jewelry. By the time of the swinging 60s he had mastered the craft and was selling to all the PYTs on the beaches of St. Tropez.
His whimsical, gypsy-influenced jewelry quickly became all the rage and in 1971 he opened his first retail store in St. Tropez. Today the flagship boutique is still going strong and there are additional boutiques worldwide.
With an obvious celebrity following, Gas Bijoux is sold exclusively in their boutiques worldwide. Prices range from $145-$225 for earrings to $175 for necklaces.
