Bridgewater, Connecticut (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
East Coast jewelry line Alexis Gopal Jewelry (http://www.alexisgopal.com) will have its “Gold Cascade” bib necklace showcased on display at GBK’s Luxury Gift Lounge for the 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival, while its “Druzy Quartz” Men’s Cuff Links and Women’s “Luxe” Earrings will be included in The Artisan Group’s celebrity swag bags. The Gift Lounge takes place May 17-20 at an exclusive location in Cannes, France.
Alexis Gopal, designer/owner of Alexis Gopal Jewelry, designed and handcrafted the one-of-a-kind bib necklace especially for Cannes. The bib, composed of golden leaves, white freshwater pearls and varying shades of Pink Swarovski Crystals, cascades gracefully from a thick, 14K gold filled chain. “This is a necklace for the woman who is not afraid to make a statement,” said Gopal. “The overall effect is luxurious and a bit romantic.”

Celebrities receiving the coveted Artisan Group swag bags will find nestled inside either a set of Gopal’s Men’s Cuff Links, which are set with genuine Druzy quartz gemstones or for the ladies, a pair of gemstone and crystal encrusted drop earrings from the “Luxe” collection.
“For Cannes, I wanted to present handcrafted statement jewelry that would be eye-catching, glamorous and suitable for such a prestigious and elegant event,” remarked Gopal.
Collectors from around the world appreciate Alexis Gopal Jewelry for its smart, elegant style; provocative lines; bold colors and heirloom quality. Others love the energy that seems to emanate from the carefully selected gemstones and crystals Gopal favors in her designs. Some wear Gopal's inspirational pieces as a kind of talisman.
This last does not come as a surprise to Gopal, a former physician who is driven to create jewelry by her desire to empower women. "I believe that healing comes not only in medical terms but also in the symbolism of the adornments we select and the emotions they evoke in us," said Gopal. “For me, beautiful objects symbolize a brighter tomorrow. I want my jewelry to have that significance for women; to act as a touchstone of sorts.”
In addition to its inclusion in the Cannes Film Festival Celebrity Gift Lounge, Alexis Gopal Jewelry was also selected for The Artisan Group's 2013 Earth Day Gift Bag and has been showcased on display and included in GBK’s celebrity swag bags for the 2012 Golden Globe Awards, the 2012 Oscars and the 2012 MTV Movie Awards.
Gopal has gifted custom jewelry designs to Ginnifer Goodwin, Rachael Ray and Paula Abdul and the jewelry has been photographed on Penelope Anne Miller. The line has also been showcased at the 2012 Elle Style360 Accessory Lounge at New York Fashion Week.
