Intimate, original, eternal. Introducing Laurel & Bleau, a collection designed with you in mind. Founded by Lori Gilman, Laurel & Bleau is a line of exclusive jewelry set to make a lasting impression.
Laurel & Bleau was named after two hotels owned by Gilman's family in the 50's and 60's, one being the famous Fountain Bleau in Miami. Like Laurel & Bleau’s name, each piece of jewelry tells a meaningful story. Your Story. "Everyone has a journey or story they tell through names, photos and of course jewelry. The jewelry you wear is the world’s first look into who you are and what you are about.”
Allowing clients to collaborate on the design process is what truly sets Laurel & Bleau apart from other jewelry companies. When purchasing a piece from any of the collections, you become the designer. Choosing everything from chain length, to color and engravings gives buyers an intimate, one-of-a-kind experience. "Designing a piece of jewelry that you are able to layer with what you own and love already is what Laurel & Bleau is all about.”
Lori Gilman, a native New Yorker, began her career in the fashion industry, where she assisted in designing and selling various new clothing lines, including the re-launch of the popular 1980's brand Jordache jeans. A pioneer in the Streetwear area, Lori introduced emerging Urban designers to department stores across the country.
In 1995 Lori put her creative efforts into her marriage, having two beautiful children Noah and Lucky with her husband Rob. After the birth of her two children she continued to work on various projects, including freelance merchandising, designing and personal shopping.
