In 2007, while on a design trip to Asia , jewelry designer Robin Gerard ingested a food borne virus which eventually rendered him paralyzed from the neck down and required an extended hospital stay with an intense rehabilitation period. While Guillian-Barre Syndrome did not stop him from getting back most of his normal functions, he decided to leave the corporate world behind. He now uses his experience and artistic talent to bring the best quality fashion jewelry directly to consumers and help hospital volunteer groups in the process.
With over 20 years in the fashion jewelry business, Gerard has represented and worked with some of the most famous designers in the fashion industry including Givenchy, Calvin Klein, Karl Lagerfeld, Ann Klein and Liz Claiborne. He has also represented the fashion houses of Nine West, Guess, and Walt Disney. His work has landed in most quality department and specialty stores.
