Shop the Look: Diana & Lydia


Meet Diana & Lydia

Diana Gabriel

Diana Gabriel is a 70-year-old fashion influencer and jewelry designer from New York. Always a creator, she transitioned from painting to sculpture to making jewelry, which she thinks of as “sculpture for the body.” She was featured in Ari Cohen’s book Advanced Style, and has been included in multiple fashion editorials.

Lydia Gobena

Lydia Gobena is an intellectual property lawyer who started making jewelry because she has very small wrists and fingers, and couldn’t find bold designs that would fit her. She met Diana, her best friend, in a jewelry-making class. Lydia currently lives in Harlem with her husband and two daughters.
