A Brooklyn native and creative. Gwen has always loved fashion– from clothes, to jewelry, to décor, you name it. At a young age her style was heavily influenced by accessorizing. Shopping for clothing wasn’t always easy. Gwen found it difficult to find stylish clothing that fit well as her weight often fluctuated. As a result she fell in love with jewelry. She used accessories to make statements with her look.
Gwen’s experience with fashion is what led her to create her own line. She taught herself the art of design in both apparel and jewelry before being formally trained.
Today the brand’ features an assortment of golden jewels. Gwen has a particular affinity for gold. The very first piece of jewelry she designed was a gold necklace with her beloved city of Brooklyn spelled across the front, that she still wears to this day. She would go on to design other pieces, prioritizing style and quality equally. The aesthetic of the jewels is a step above minimalist, they can be worn stand-alone, and are also perfect for layering and stacking to achieve a more statement look. Gwen Beloti jewels are made from primarily gold filled material with a selection of brass and gold dipped items. Most of the designs are made here in the US.
The chain is assembled locally in Brooklyn, NY. Most of the hardware is designed in NYC and produced in the U.S. The pieces are produced in small batches, much of which is handmade. Quality is of utmost importance to the brand. Gwen is fortunate to work with a great team to bring your jewel experience to life.
Gwen's love for this experience of adorning yourself, paired with rave customer feedback, inspired her to launch the brands's featured product, Golden Stories Accessory Box. Golden Stories is a quarterly box of gold jewels designed to build a perfect and complete collection for members. Learn more at GoldenStoriesBox.com.

CREATIVE AT HEART
Gwen earned her design certification at the Fashion Design Studio and the New York School of Design under the tutelage of FIT professors after completing her Master's Degree in Psychology. She values her education but attributes her ability to really connect with her customer to her own experiences as a woman, shopper, and lover of fashion. It’s her creative spirit that has cultivated her style endeavors. When Gwen isn’t designing, she’s still designing, her food that is. Gwen now follows a plant based diet and to keep it fun and spicy, no pun intended, she curates colorful and aesthetically appealing meals.
Gwen's foundation in apparel design forged her relationship with the non-profit, Little Dresses for Africa. Gwen's love for creating and empowering women motivated her to form her own initiative in support of the organization. Annually Gwen organizes a group of volunteers to assist with making and designing 100 dresses for little girls across the globe who are in need of them. The project is currently funded largely by Gwen Beloti Collection, a portion of every sale helps to fund the initiative. In theory and in practice Gwen Beloti customers are key contributors in serving the community.
To date the brand has donated over 500 plus dresses to Little Dresses for Africa. To learn more visit our Community page - Learn more.
