Located at The Village at Corte Madera, Gorjana offers a wide range of affordable and expensive staple jewelry. Known for their yellow gold jewelry, they offer a variety of earrings, clasp bracelets, necklaces and rings. Gorjana is based in Laguna Beach and has many stores across the country. From $25 dollar stud earrings to $60 dollar necklaces, Gorjana has good prices for the quality of jewelry that they offer. All of their products are either sterling silver or gold plated; however, they do sometimes tarnish or lose their sparkle after extended wear. They also offer fine jewelry, with diamonds and other precious stones that won’t tarnish as easily. These are more expensive, costing $100 dollars or more, depending on which variety you want. Their fine jewelry is amazing quality and is the perfect birthday or holiday gift, making Gorjana the perfect place to buy classic pieces or more expensive jewelry.
