A native of Detroit, Michigan. Rose is the eldest daughter and first generation in an Italian family. Her parents were both born in the beautiful island of Sicily, Italy. She has always possessed an innate sense of design & style, having originally begun to weave what would end up becoming her first bracelet prototypes under her grandmother’s instruction, as a young child.
Rose studied Art, specializing in Jewelry & Metalsmithing, at the College for Creative Studies, in Detroit, Michigan. Jewelry Design has always been her truest passion. After working as a product developer for a Celebrity beauty brand and running 2 successful businesses in Detroit, a Custom Home Construction company and a Furniture and Design boutique, Rose decided to focus solely on her natural flair for color schemes & design and poured herself fully into jewelry design, creating her namesake company.
After several successful & happy years in Michigan alongside her husband and their three children, Rose & her family relocated to Sarasota, Florida.
Rose Gonzales designs hand-crafted jewelry and accessories that inevitably reflect her personality: colorful, light-hearted, bohemian, and unique. Her brand has been sold in over 4500 fashion boutiques & gift shops, hotels & resorts, spas & salons, casinos, museums, national parks, hospitals, college bookstores, and online retailers all over the globe.
“What is meant to be, can’t ever leave a person...follow your passion!”
