Hollywood’s favorite jeweler is gearing up for another busy season. George the Jeweler, famed designer and friend to the stars, is busy nonstop due to his endless celebrity clientele. A-Listers love George because of his attention to detail and the ability to make stunning one-of-a-kind pieces. He is also gearing up for his benefit on October 18th in partnership with the American Cancer Society for breast cancer awareness.
George has made a name for himself in the industry by being the largest wholesale, gold retailer in Detroit. Through his family-owned and operated business, he has connected with A-Listers such as Christina Milian, which led to the launch of their very own collaboration “House of Fine Gold.” Their pieces are so popular that many stars are now having George customize pieces for them. His clientele includes Gigi Hadid, Khloe Kardashian, Nicole Williams, Kendall Jenner, Ashley Graham, Karrueche Tran, Ashanti, Bebe Rexha, Giuliana Rancic, Teyana Taylor, Sarah Hyland, Corinne Olympios, Deb Ryan and more.
Christina Millian began wearing George's signature pieces in 2016. Shortly after, he began creating custom designs for her. Millian has worn George's pieces on countless red carpets and social media posts and after going back and fourth for months, the two finally decided it was the perfect time to collaborate on a line of their own. "I had been getting so many compliments on my jewelry lately. 14K gold really stands out and I love layering my necklaces from George," says Millian. Their brand, House of Fine Gold, is the affordable 14K gold jewelry line from George The Jeweler and Christina Milian.
