Laura Gambucci Boutique presented a trunk show with Royal Nomad Jewelry on Dec. 6-7 in the La Jolla store on Girard Avenue for customers to come in to shop and meet the designer.
The timing was perfect for holiday shopping to buy something for yourself or someone special. Khris Golanka is the designer of this fabulous jewelry made for the well-traveled woman. She started this business in 2013 with her husband, Taylor Golanka, who is a music producer and entrepreneur. They both share a love for traveling and that is where they find their inspiration for each piece of jewelry.
The jewelry is color-based, incorporating vibrant colors. Royal Nomad recommends mixing the unexpected by blending cultures with multiple strands. This bold layering of mixed styles creates fabulous textures and shapes. More is more and creates a one-of-a-kind look for the wearer. Many of the pieces are made with precious stones and diamonds. All the material are ethically sourced from around the world. They also have some pieces with enamel and one of the customer’s favorite was a key and a star with precious stones.
Many celebrities are fans of Royal Nomad. Celebrities that have worn designs by Khris are both men and women including Kate Beckinsale, Hilary Duff, Debra Messing, Chris Brown, Snoop Dogg, and Jamie Foxx. Golanka’s favorite model is her daughter Simone Remington, who was on hand to show off the luxury jewelry to the clients that came in. While I was there, customer Karen Fox came in and Khris worked her magic of layering multiple styles for her. By the time Fox left the boutique, she was ready for her event at the Athenaeum that night.
