While window shopping on Coast Village Road in Santa Barbara, the Peachy team came across a stunning tanzanite ring. We stepped inside the beautiful Daniel Gibbings store to take a peek. Daniel Gibbings Jewelry features exotic, bold and elegant high-karat metalwork, fine colored jewels and time-intensive fabrication. The exquisite ring that caught our eye, now sold, was a showstopper along with Gibbings’ other beautiful treasures.
Daniel grew up in South Africa where a rich tradition in craft sparked his interest in design. He later traveled extensively, soaking up the beauty of the various locales and visiting museums, which deepened his growing appreciation for metalwork. Through his training at Jaffa School of Art in Israel and Sir John Cass Faculty of Art in London, Daniel has mastered the techniques of jewelry design.
When Daniel decided to call Santa Barbara home, he teamed up with businesswoman and entrepreneur Setenay Ozdemir-Osman. Their partnership has enabled Daniel to exercise his artistic passion while Setenay handles the business side.
Each exquisitely handcrafted piece is made in Santa Barbara using gemstones such as rubies, sapphires, tourmalines, Zultanite, pearls and diamonds. Daniel chooses his own stones and has them cut to order instead of using standard cuts. Known for his beautiful metalwork that combines the old world with the new, Daniel braids, carves, hammers, scrolls and weaves the 18K gold to create masterpieces. The result for his clients is jewelry that is unique, exotic and elegant. Daniel’s one-of-a-kind pieces are worn by sophisticated and stylish women around the world.
