Our story begins with two dynamic and talented brothers, Jack and Dominick, who saw an unfeeling jewelry industry that needed new vision. They understood why unique, quality jewelry is important to people in the first place: to celebrate the special occasions, to commemorate the momentous accomplishments, to honor the deepest relationships, and to capture the unspeakable beauty of life and those who matter most.
As young apprentices to their father, master jeweler Elias Gabriel, they learned the exacting art and science of combining precious metals and stones to make a creation greater than either element alone. Committed to making their vision come true, the Gabriel brothers followed in their father’s footsteps and formed Gabriel & Co. in 1989. With their carefully selected and talented team, they devoted themselves to the production of the finest quality jewelry and unparalleled service.
Today, Gabriel & Co. has earned the reputation as being passionate, dependable, and artistic designers, creators and manufacturers. Our extensive line of timeless pieces encompasses classic and fashion-forward design, ultimately bringing together impeccable artistry with enduring technology, perfect for every unforgettable moment.
“In 1972, two brothers with a background in diamond cutting opened Spark Creations in New York selling quality diamond jewelry. Little by little they added color to their designs and fifteen years later the company moved into color in a big way. The message was clear…color was the wave of the future. Why color? Jewelry has become a fashion item. When the company introduced colored gemstones into their lines, they made a fashion statement.” – Spark Creations

Lika Behar was born in the magnificent city of Istanbul.
With roots in ancient Anatolian civilizations, this former Byzantine capital has evolved into a cosmopolitan metropolis which juxtaposes sublime historical architectural expressions within a modern skyline. As such, Istanbul is known as one of the truly great romantic destinations of the world and is the fundamental source of inspiration for the Lika Behar Collection.
Lika’s family lineage is one of storied gold coin dealers; a trade long believed to be the lifeline of the Mediterranean. Her collection elegantly reconciles the rich inspiration of ancient jewelry traditions, utilizing only pure and nimble 24 Karat gold. The results are pieces wrought with a sensual and tactile modernism. The 2008 collection is also infused with brilliant gemstones reflecting the varying hues that recall the depths of blue waters that cradle Lika’s birth country. Her workroom in Istanbul deftly reconciles ancient history with the sensibility of the modern world.
Each piece from the collection is uniquely hand wrought with the exquisite precision once celebrated by ancient artisans; yielding a tawny luxury fit for the modern woman whose jewelry reflects, at the same time ancient history, and the art that is the modern feminine spirit.

FACET, headquartered in Barcelona, was founded in 1987. Our activity was exclusively the trade of cut diamonds. The evolution of the market in 2005 led us to establish a jewelry factory in Asia which employs over 400 people. Under European management, we started as suppliers to key accounts and in 2007 we created our own collections for the retail market. This initiative is a great success thanks to the teamwork of the 70 people who make up the organization in our offices in Europe, USA and Brazil.
