Gemdrop consists of colorfully unique, fine fashion jewelry designs - each piece is a hand-crafted combination of semi-precious gemstones, oxidized sterling silver, enamel, wood, tribal and vintage beads sourced from around the globe, all accented with champagne and rose cut diamonds.
Adria Roberson’s path to jewelry design is as unique as the pieces she creates. From her early days working in her family’s interior design and floral arrangement business, to her career on Wall Street investing in early stage specialty retail and luxury brands, to her time running a boutique specializing in custom gifts & events. Adria has always had the passion, drive and an eye for identifying, curating and creating unique products and designs that are simultaneously timeless and ahead-of-their time.
While she has collected and designed jewelry for herself, close friends and family throughout most of her life, a jewelry buyer for a Charlotte, North Carolina store took notice and inquired about pieces from Adria’s personal collection. In 2017, Gemdrop was launched. What began as a small offering of handmade bracelets and chains with diamond and gemstone accents, quickly evolved into an ever-expanding collection of one-of-a-kind and limited edition pieces. Each Gemdrop piece is designed by Adria using hand chosen gemstones and other unique materials sourced by her from India, Africa, Asia and around the globe.
Gemdrop designs are equal parts whimsical, elegant and a bit edgy, with pieces that work with denim as well as a cocktail dress. The timeless designs can be mixed and matched and worked into everyday jewelry wardrobes, while the one-of-a-kind materials add unusual pops of color, pattern and texture that help express each woman's individuality.
Adria enjoys working one-on-one with her clients, a number of whom have become avid collectors, to create their perfect customized piece. Many of Gemdrop's offerings are available in a variety of colorways and designs meant to be customized or personalized.
When she is not sourcing gemstones and specialty findings with sources around the globe, you might find Adria, along with her husband, cheering their two school-aged sons on the basketball court and soccer fields of Charlotte, North Carolina. She may have her sketchbook with her just in case inspiration strikes at halftime or during warm-ups!
