Gorjana offers ‘Laguna Beach inspired’ jewelry

  • Gorjana’s inventory primarily comes in gold, though the store also carries some silver jewelry and other gemstones.
  • The store’s jewelry comes in various forms, from hoop earrings and charm bracelets to ring sets and necklaces.
  • In addition to jewelry, Gorjana also carries other items like candles and jewelry cases.

This marks Gorjana’s first Johnson County store

  • The new Leawood store is also the first in the wider Kansas City metro area for the California-based brand.
  • Gorjana gets its name from its founder, Gorjana Reidel — who founded the store with her husband, Jason Reidel.
  • The couple started Gorjana out of their Laguna Beach apartment roughly two decades ago, and since then, Gorjana has expanded with more than 60 stores across the country.
