Galatea Introduces Gem-Lok Jewelry System
This new, customizable jewelry system features a patented fastener and interchangeable pendants for earrings and necklaces.
By: Barbara Moss
At the heart of Clover-Lok is an ingenious fastening mechanism that allows any one of a number of pendant designs to connect to a main earring or necklace component. The pendants, available in a wide range of styles and price points, allow for a quick change whenever desired. A basic Clover-Lok earring or necklace design can be transformed easily from a day to an evening look, from simple to dramatic, in a snap.
“Clover-Lok is a collection that is right for today and is also a lot of fun,” says Chi Galatea Huynh, Galatea’s creator. “I’ve designed the pendants to range from simple to elegant, so retailers can help their customers to ‘build’ an entire jewelry wardrobe. It’s a great way to create customer loyalty.”
Clover-Lok includes14K white and yellow gold earring and necklace component designs and pendants featuring the Galatea Pearl, Diamond in a Pearl™, DavinChi Cut™ gemstones and much more.
A painter, poet and humanitarian, Huynh founded Galatea in 1994. He learned the jewelry
trade by apprenticing for his father, one of Viet Nam’s most respected jewelers. Today, Galatea manufactures both in the U.S. and Viet Nam and sells to approximately 1500 retail jewelers throughout the United States. The company also has distribution in both Europe and Asia.
