Originally based in Munich, Gabriele started her career by running the multi brand store Frantzen&Frantzen. In 2003 she founded her own distribution agency Best of 19 which she still successfully runs to date, while also working as brand ambassador for brands like Phillip Lim.
Frantzen has been captivated by the power and influence of well-chosen accessories all her life. Testing out her creations personally for months before, the ability to personalize how a woman wears Gabriele Frantzen pieces has become the cornerstone of her mission as a designer—giving the wearer a well-made, beautifully designed piece to truly make their own.
Over the past few years, her designs have been worn and personalized by some of the most unique and influential next-gen style icons around—from Leandra Medine of Man Repeller to Olivia Palermo and Giovanna Battaglia. Frantzen’s ever-evolving collection is grounded in the designer’s love of premium materials—think Swarovski Crystal, vintage pearls, and sustainably sourced fur—expert craftsmanship, and her own signature twist, cinch, or fray that has made Gabriele Frantzen pieces a modern must-have.
Life is all about change…and our accessories are too! But we still keep in our hearts – and in our jewelry boxes – some of our favorite pieces.
Gabriele’s favorites from her first line, which was necklaces, are her Trinity Star Choker, her Sense&Sensibility necklace and her long, pearl Wagner creation. Each carries a favorite memory. The Sense & Sensibility was the first design and launched her as an accessory designer worldwide, featured in the windows of Sak’s Fifth Avenue in New York City, shined from the pages of Vogue and Harper´s Bazaar… and sparkled on the Oscar Red Carpet which Gabriele was also invited to.
Produced in limited quantity, these pieces have now become collector’s items.
