California Girl Jewelry: 2023 Best of the County Shopping

Mother and daughter duo Mariel Baker and Denise Forbes source their own gemstones from all over the world. Specializing in one-of-a-kind pieces, CGJ has over 3,000 loose gemstone and hundreds of finished pieces in their showroom of varying colors and cuts.

What makes CGJ unique?
We hand select the best gemstones available in the world. Even with pavé diamonds, we use the highest quality colorless diamonds.
What inspired you to start California Girl Jewelry?
While working in NYC, Mariel discovered the world of rare colored gemstones. She befriended a jeweler in the Diamond District in New York, and designed her jewelry while adding rare colored gemstones to her collection.
Why Marin?
We operated a very small boutique in San Francisco for over five years and realized that most of our clients were from Marin, and since we both live here, it was a natural choice.
