CHICAGO

The Alex Kelley jewelry collection was created by Chicago designer Kelley Gambera and features her signature locket necklaces, antique bridal jewelry collection and one-of-a-kind designs. An avid collector of Georgian, early- to mid-Victorian, Edwardian and Art Deco jewelry, Kelley draws her inspiration from the past yet keeps her designs edgy and current.

She is forever searching for interesting pieces of jewelry at auctions, estate sales or at unexpected places such as a Kansas antique store while visiting her parents. Every antique has a story and for Kelley, its never a job to uncover it and bring it back to life in her jewelry. Frequent trips to Europe with her Northern Italian husband and son and love of history keep Kelley constantly inspired to research and create new designs.
