For all you fans of designer Emily Gill, she’s doing a couple of pop-ups, hence this blog post’s title, in California at the end of this month! In Los Angeles and San Fransisco to be precise, more deets below. Be sure to reserve your spot…ASAP!
“I’ve been working on showcasing some very unique, alternative bridal with traditional glass enamel, and specialty diamonds and sapphires. A big part of growing my online presence to spread the word I can attribute to a nice symbiotic relationship I have with Gem Breakfast !” says Emily. They have become friends in real life too now, btw. Gotta love this community, right?
Emily has been working with Gem Breakfast founder/owner Catherine Cason since the beginning of 2017 when Catherine launched her online shop. Emily is having her second and third U.S. pop up with Gem Breakfast in California!
“The exciting part about doing real-life pop-ups together is to be able to meet with the clients we share and text constantly online, in an intimate and personal way. We love our clients, and it is a unique opportunity to try on jewelry you would otherwise only see online until you purchased it!” says Emily.

An intention to popularize her enameled deco motifs from the 1920s isn’t all that prompted Emily Gill to join forces with growing online influencer Gem Breakfast who quickly saw potential to market Emily’s bold design choices. The two shared a mutual passion for fostering a type of community that encourages women, especially, to feel empowered in their jewelry choices and give a platform to independent jewelers to showcase, but also sell, their high-quality jewelry.
Just a bit more about Emily and her inspirations:
It was clear from a very young age Emily was going to be an artist. Her interests navigated between Egyptian culture and the solar system as a child, she was intent to learn, quiet, shy, and her parents brought her to places like Kenya on adventures that inspired and pushed a 6-year-old out of her comfort zone. She started beading jewelry when she was 8. A budding jewelry artist! Her jewelry aesthetic is unmistakably deco at a first glance, but she throws in her affinity for cultural inspiration from her broad history of studying art and design. Each piece is usually one-of-a-kind and very exceptional if you’re asking me. Emily also likes to collect unusual diamonds and sapphires to be the focal point of her color and design choices. Again she has most definitely a very unique aesthetic which you only but can love.
Her recent work, showcasing first in L.A. with Gem Breakfast at their joint pop up, is an exploration of adornment that could easily have been plucked from a hieroglyph. She wants the rings to feel empowering and is really proud to showcase a line of work that was built in a time of self-realization. Unofficially a line of Goddess Rings, this new series will also be accompanied by smaller earrings and pendants with her signature enamel motifs, diamonds, and 18k gold.
