California jewelry line to be unveiled in Manhattan Village in the fall

MANHATTAN BEACH, CA – Jewelry brand originating in Southern California, gorjana, will open in Manhattan Village in fall 2021. With 20 outlets currently spread across the country, the new boutique will mark the brand’s first location in South Bay LA.

Known for its effortlessly chic jewelry collections, gorjana’s Manhattan Beach expansion will be unveiled in the newly redesigned center alongside recently announced contemporary lifestyle brands Faherty, Anthropologie and Urban Outfitters.

“We are excited to open a store in Manhattan Village,” co-founders Gorjana Reidel and Jason Griffin Reidel said in a statement. “We were immediately drawn to the area and helped open Village Shops. We’ve always been inspired for our pieces by local beach communities and Manhattan Beach really fits into what we like to call, our line of quintessentially Californian jewelry. We hope this new store will provide a space where customers can truly experience our brand, walk in, and feel instantly welcomed and inspired to create their own unique layered look.”

Offering both casual and refined jewelry designed for layering, gorjana joins the eclectic mix of recently opened retail stores and dining concepts that embrace the chic coastal vibe. Gorjana’s versatile “California Cool” jewelry boutique is a well-placed addition to Manhattan Village’s current fashion, beauty and lifestyle offerings.

About Gorjana

Based in Laguna Beach, Calif., the gorjana brand was founded in 2004 upstairs from the apartment of husband and wife duo Jason and Gorjana Reidel. The couple traveled 50,000 miles to sell and market their collection and hit the trade show circuit. Through their own distinct strengths and combined creative vision, the brand quickly grew from an idea into a fully-fledged business that is still owned and operated by Gorjana and Jason. The eponymous line is intentionally designed to mix, match and layer. Many designs are versatile and feature adjustable clasps and sliding beads, allowing the wearer to make each piece their own.
