Lily & Co. Jewelers has introduced its exclusive pendant, The Lily Starfish, by renowned designer Gurhan. It’s set in GURHAN’s signature hand-hammered 24k gold; features a natural white druzy stone; and handcrafted in GURHAN’s workshop for assurance of impeccable quality.
“We are elated to introduce this gorgeous piece by Gurhan, who is a brilliant designer and become a good friend. We always enjoy his visits to our island store,” says Dan Schuyler, who owns Lily & Co. with Karen Bell. “It’s truly an honor to have Gurhan create this unique pendant for Lily & Co.”
Gurhan, a world traveler, has visited some of the most spectacular and exotic places on the globe. Yet, every year when he visits Sanibel Island, he is struck by the natural beauty and the feeling that washes over him when crossing the Causeway. He often refers to Sanibel as one of the prettiest places in the world.
“Because of the warm welcome I receive on my visits, I am thrilled to create this exclusive collection just for Lily & Co,” says Gurhan. He has developed a close bond, not only with the Lily team, but with the many wonderful clients he’s worked with throughout the years. “So, to celebrate this relationship, I wanted to present a special design that is symbolic of the island’s idyllic setting,” he says.
The natural druzy is a beautiful stone that Gurhan has been working with more and more over the past year – mostly because of its incredible versatility and inherent beauty. “It’s available in several colors, including black and silver, but one look at the white druzy used in the starfish collection and you are instantly reminded of warm sand, gold and glittering sun,” says Gurhan.
Druzy and starfish create a look that is both a little bit dressed up, but reflective of the laid back style that gives Sanibel its appeal. The Lily Starfish blends beautifully with the GURHAN collection that guests will find in Lily & Co., 520 Tarpon Bay Rd.
